WIN-It-Wednesday: KIND Peanut Butter Bars & Clusters… Celebrate National Peanut Butter Day!

Today we have a reason to celebrate! Why, you ask, is this mid-winter hump-day a reason to kick-up our heels and celebrate? Well…  National Peanut Butter Day!

No matter how you like it… chunky, creamy, smeared on gluten-free bread, as a dip with fresh veggies, or eaten right out of the jar… Peanut Butter deserves it’s own day. =) And today, my friends, is that day!

And in honor of this fabulous event, this week’s Win-It-Wednesday on BeFreeForMe’s is sponsored once again by one of my all-time favorite bars …. KIND Bars.

Besides celebrating peanut butter being heart healthy, full of protein and high in Potassium, we can also celebrate the family of peanut butter based products offered by Kind Bars; which include…

Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate & Protein Bars: A healthy & satisfying blend of peanuts and antioxidant-rich dark chocolate (Can you say YUM?!)  Each bar contains 7 grams of protein.

Peanut Butter & Strawberry Bars: The best of a PB&J Sandwich… blended right into a bar! This protein packed bar is a blend of rich peanuts and fresh strawberries.

Peanut Butter Whole Grain Clusters: “Grab-it-by-the-handful” granola-like clusters that’s a protein packed blend of peanuts and whole grains amaranth, quinoa, oats, millet and buckwheat. These delicious clusters provide 5g of protein per serving and are a tasty way to get 16g of whole grains.

As always, KIND bars and clusters are gluten-free, kosher, and are perfect for a  mid-day snack, or a breakfast on the run. Worried about nutrition? All KIND Bars offer the essential nutrients often lacking in gluten free diets including fiber, protein, magnesium and vitamin B12.

So today is a reason to celebrate the humblest of all spreads: Peanut Butter. A sometime overlooked, but healthy and much loved staple in today’s world. I am so thrilled that KIND is this week’s Win-It-Wednesday sponsor on

A total of two (2) BeFreeForMe members will be selected to win a prize exclusive for this contest on BeFreeForMe. This prize is packed with four (yes… 4!) bars of EACH of the two KIND Peanut Butter flavors – Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate & Protein, and Peanut Butter & Strawberry – for a total of 8 KIND Bars, PLUS two (2) bags of the Peanut Butter Whole Grain Clusters.

  3. Angie W Says:

    I can’t get enough of peanut butter scooped right out of the jar. But really, peanut butter in anything is amazing.

  4. Hillary-Heidi Berndt Says:

    Just like a kid at heart, my favorite way to eat peanut butter is ants on a log. Celery, peanut butter and raisens make an excellent snack.

  5. Larc Bogdan Says:

    I love carrot sticks dipped in PB. Or celery. Or apples…mmmmm. My daughter’s favorite way to enjoy pb is on a frozen banana. Just peel, put in the freezer, then when frozen spread on the pb! For a treat, sometimes we will melt chocolate chips and then drizzle the chocolate on top. YUM.

  6. Ashley K Says:

    I love peanut butter on a granny smith apple with a sprinkle of cinnamon and a few mini chocolate chips. It is a great snack that is fairly low in calories but tastes like a major indulgence.

  7. Kim Says:

    I love peanut butter with some baby carrots or celery for a delicious pick me up snack!!!! Our next door neighbor brought over dinner for me and my husband on Christmas after finding out my husband had cancer! They brought enough food for an army and it was greatly appreciated!

  8. Katie Says:

    My favorite way to use peanut butter is… making our favorite PB cookies: 2 cups of peanut butter, 2 cups of sugar and 2 eggs. Mix together and bake for 8 min. at 400 degrees. SO good!

    Thanks for entering me in the contest. My GF daughters would love these bars!

  10. Julie Shannon Says:

    I love KIND bars!

  11. Sue Says:

    With a spoon in the jar!

  12. Bobbie Sevenster Says:

    My absolute favorite way to enjoy peanut butter – Chicken peanut butter curry!
    Adding peanut butter to a chicken curry dish is absolutely amazing and one of my favorite foods. Chicken and peanut butter are marvelous companions.

    After living overseas for 24 years, I have immigrated back to Canada and this winter is colder than any I remember.
    My dearest friend, the Kindest man I know, felt sorry for me having to wait for city transit in this dreadfully freezing weather so when he recently bought himself a second vehicle he was generous and kind beyond belief – he gave me the old vehicle to use.
    What a difference this kind gesture has made to my life, the freedom and mobility of my own vehicle is wonderful. I am so grateful for such wonderful and kind friends.

  13. Kathleen Reale Says:

    Yum! Peanut Butter Curry DOES sound amazing!

  15. Michelle Says:

    You name it, I love PB that way! In my protein shakes, with apples, on a sammy, in cookies, as is right out of the jar. We are always well stocked with PB! A friend saw some new gluten free cookies in a local store and bought them for me to try!

  16. Jessica J. Says:

    I love peanut butter and apples, so does my whole family, pretty much every night for dessert.

  17. Neda Says:

    Peanuts are very delicious. I always use the nut, itself. I add it to ice-cream -if it already does not contain any! to GF cookies that I make; also use it with cereals mixed with milk. Thank you.

  18. tomi Says:

    Ha Ha I have a dog and cat who are addicted to the stuff (old fashioned peanut butter) , so I always have a jar in the fridge! They do allow me to have a little and my favorite way is like theirs; right out of the jar (but a little added chocolate to mine is a wonderful treat).

  19. Brittany @ Barr & Table Says:

    I love eating peanut butter on my sweet breakfast scrambles or oatmeal. Or right off of a spoon!

  20. Forress Says:

    I just love a peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich. But it has to be just the right amout or both so when you bite into it it runs out the sides. Also a favorite cookie is peanut butter that I make often they never last very long though, great a nice cold glass of milk.

    Peanut butter with apple. Hands down. Friends of mine fixed a lovely roast with roasted veggies for dinner, invited me to join them, and sent me home with leftovers. How lovely is that?

  39. Kim Says:

    I love peanut butter with slices of apple, baby carrots and celery!! Yum!!

  40. kellie Says:

    I used to love the creamy texture, protein, and good for you feeling that peanut butter fills you with. Now I love all of that and more as I watch my 3 and 5 year old daughters enjoy the nut-tricious snack smeared all over their face and sticky fingers. Peanut butter is now cuteness and love!!

  41. Cynthia Says:

    We love Kind bars here!
    My favorite way to enjoy peanut butter is as a dip for apples!
    I also love chocolate covered peanut butter balls but they are a once a year thing here.
    Something kind someone has done is that my mother in law did dishes for me last night after I had made 5 gluten free pizzas (from scratch) for our family dinner. That was a lot of dishes!

  42. Susan Says:

    Peanut butter and banana sandwich! Yummy!

  43. Debi Says:

    I love peanut butter & honey sandwiches on toasted bread. Mmmm childhood memories, eating them with friends. Apples slices with peanut butter are also a good pick me up afternoon snack. Would love to try these, going to look for them next time I go shopping.

  44. Martha Russell Says:

    As a kid, my favorite way to eat peanut butter was a sandwhich with either banana slices or potato chips for a topping. Now that I am an adult and supposed to be more dignified I try to behave myself and eat peanut butter with apples or on crackers or right out of the jar!! Love peanut butter and kind bars both!!!

  50. Judy Pearson-Wright Says:

    I love peanut butter and I love jelly but have never liked my peanut butter “contaminated” by jelly. Even as a kid plain crunchy PB for me! My friends mom’s would call my mother just to be sure I wasn’t lying! Even preferred open faced. Making a GF sandwich today to eat after skating. Every Wednesday actually. At our skating events a friend always makes sure there are Kind bars in the snack room so I have a healthy GF snack to grab and go!

  51. Laura Says:

    I love no bake cookies! But peanut butter is delicious with fresh apples as well. Personally, I even eat it straight out of the jar. 🙂

  52. Christina Says:

    Peanut butter on waffles with a touch of maple syrup! Recently when I was sick my husband did the grocery shopping so I could rest.

  53. Susan M Says:

    When I need a quick something, a spoonful of Peanut Butter straight from the jar hits the spot.

  54. Katie Says:

    I love peanut butter best by the spoonful right out of the jar. Yum! Other enjoyable PB dishes include; protein shakes, PB Yogurt and bananas in a bowl, and the very famous and never underestimated PB & J.

    Peanut butter keeps me full and satisfies my sweet tooth while giving me lots of protein.

  55. Darla Says:

    My friend printed out an article and borrowed me a book on gluten free foods since i was just diagnosed with celiac disease.

  61. Karen Says:

    Apples and peanutbutter for a quick meal but a close second is peanut sauce, vegetables, and chicken. Today was payday and I am payroll clerk. One of our employees came and found me and thanked me for seeing that she got paid. She had missed getting her timesheet in on time and I called to make sure it was accurate, added missing hours, and printed it off for her. Not an unusual thing but she made the effort to say thank you. Made my day!

  62. Susan Says:

    I LOVE Kind bars!

    My kids treated me to a hug. Especially nice since they are 18 and 22.

  63. Neda Says:

    I love to add it to a low sweet ice-cream, it’s gorgeous! Guys, try a peanut butter ice-cream. Also mixing the nut with other nuts is great, peanut + hazelnut + cashew + pistachio + brazil nut!

  64. Kim Says:

    I just love peanut butter!! Can eat it straight out of the jar, but usually put it on some apple slices or banana slices for a great afternoon pick me up! Love Kind bars and would love to try these with the peanut butte!!!!
