When initially launched in 1986, there were three varieties: chocolate chip, nutty fudge and peanut butter. The original formulation of the bar was much more candy bar-like, with less focus on the granola, although the original intention was still to offer a healthier candy bar alternative. It was not just made as a granola bar but also as a candy type too, having M&Ms and chocolate all over it.
The original slogan was "Kudos, I'm yours!"
In 2006, Kudos won the American Culinary Chefs Best Taste Award.
