How does it taste? Have you ever had a Lara Bar? Well it has a similar taste and texture to it, but the KIT’s is way better. The flavors are more complex and you get small chunks of almond, and a bit of coconut pieces. The base of the bar is made from organic dates which delivers a sweetness that isn’t overpowering. The taste of coconut is very pronounced and gives it a nice roasted, flavor that compliments the almonds. In comparisson to the Lara Bar, KIT’s far exceeds the taste (flavor) and texture. At 190 calories, it kept me satisfied between meals and didn’t leave me feeling like I had a log in my stomach. KIT’s would be ideal for mid or late afternoon snack, or during a rest break at your local mountain bike trail.
