Clif, Balance, and Luna are a few of my favorite brands when choosing energy bars, but the popular packed-with-peanuts candy bar company wants to get in on the action too with their Snickers Marathon bars. I know what you're thinking. Snickers? Making energy bars? Yep. They were designed to give good tasting energy to active, healthy people, and they come in three varieties — Energy, Nutrition, and Protein.
I find it ironic that the ingredients couldn't be found anywhere on the entire website. Wouldn't health-minded people want to know what they're eating? Seems a little sneaky. Then when I did some research, I discovered these bars contain corn syrup and high fructose corn syrup — just what I expected from a food that has Snickers on the label. The website did include the nutritional labels, so to see how these bars measure up,
|Calories||Sat. Fat (g)||Chol. (mg)||Sodium (mg)||Carbs (g)||Fiber (g)||Sugars (g)||Protein (g)|
|Energy: Multigrain Crunch||220||2.5||5||210||31||3||17||10|
|Energy: Chewy Chocolate Peanut||210||3||5||200||26||5||15||13|
|Energy: Chewy Peanut Butter||210||3||5||240||25||4||15||14|
|Nutrition: Dark Chocolate Crunch||150||2.5||5||140||22||7||9||11|
|Nutrition: Honey & Toasted Almond||150||2||5||125||22||7||10||10|
|Protein: Caramel Nut Rush||290||5||5||190||40||10||22||20|
|Protein: Chocolate Nut Burst||280||3||5||340||37||11||18||21|
I was wondering, have any of you tried these Snickers Energy bars?
