Review of Snickers Marathon Energy Bars

Snickers Energy Bars?

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?

I doubt they are very much different than most other "energy bars" out there. Only a few it seems are actually worthwhile when it comes to nutrition. That being said, I really like Larabars :)

I'm with ellied...I'm not a fan of any energy bars because I think they're all pretty much nothing but processed sugars/protein isolates/etc. I'd rather get my nutrition from actual food, I guess. Here's a tidbit of info for everyone: Snickers bars USED to be called "Marathon" bars back when they first came out; now they're just using that name for the nutrition bars that they make.

I'm pretty sure that Balance bars have HFCS in them, and they definitely have at least as much sat fat. Bars are fine for the occasional snack, but they're pretty much all candy.

yeah, they were out several years ago (2005) and I remember having one or two. However, I was under no illusion that they were much more than a candy bar with some puff grain (like many energy bars). They were a bit less sweet than a snickers or candy bar and I liked them. I don't know of thy are formulated in the same way as they were, so they ma taste different now. But when I had them I enjoyed them as a snack or dessert.
