We're Obsessed with Target's New Healthy Snack Line—Here Are Our Top Picks
Target's Good & Gather brand launched earlier this year with a mission to provide nutritious and affordable food the whole family will enjoy.
Just about everyone snacks at least once a day, but it's easy to get stuck in a rut—especially if you're trying to eat healthy. Well you can forget that boring handful of raw almonds, thanks to these seriously healthy and delicious snacks from Target's new Good & Gather line.
Good & Gather is a line of everything from basic staples like eggs and bread to creative snacks, all without artificial flavors, synthetic colors, artificial sweeteners and high fructose corn syrup. Additionally, most of the snacks we tried were free of or low in added sugars (but they're so good, they definitely don't taste "healthy!") You'll find a few of our favorites, below:

Good & Gather Date & Nut Bars
We were pleasantly surprised by how delicious these wholesome bars were—dare we say they're even better than our favorite Larabars. We loved the texture and flavor, and our staff could have consumed the entire box of the Banana Chocolate Chip variety in a heartbeat.
The bars taste just like an indulgent chocolate-y banana bread, while being a good source of fiber, potassium and iron. We can't wait to snack our way through all six flavors.
Good & Gather Chocolate Sea Salt Probiotic Granola
This one is another dupe for a favorite granola brand of ours—Purely Elizabeth—and for a much better price. There was a great coconut taste to this granola, plus it was a perfect balance of sweet and salty for whatever you're craving.
We were content eating this straight out of the bag, but it would also be delicious with yogurt or in a smoothie bowl. Plus, it has 3 grams of fiber and protein per serving to help keep you full until your next meal.
Good & Gather Unsweetened Dried Fruit
You wouldn't expect unsweetened dried fruit to be difficult to find in the average grocery store, but it's not as widely available as it should be—until now. We are huge fans of Good & Gather's healthy option for dried fruit, and all the ways they make it more interesting. Our staff really enjoyed their Unsweetened Chili-Lime Spiced Mango for a spicy yet refreshing midday snack.
Good & Gather Fruit Pouches
These kid-focused fruit pouches are convenient, spill-proof, healthy and delicious. Basically, they're the holy grail of kid snacks. The Apple-Cinnamon variety is perfectly spiced and has a great sweet-tart flavor without tasting like a sugar bomb. And with only 2 grams of added sugar, you can feel great serving it to your kids—or yourself (we won't tell!)
