Atkins Day Break Chocolate Chip Crisp BarAtkins has changed their "Morning Start" Bar - loved the Atkins Morning Start Triple Berry Breakfast Bar by the way - to Atkins "Day Break" Bars. While I'm a big proponent of eating a filling breakfast in the morning, there's no dying that sometimes, it's just grab and go time. This morning, it was a Atkins Day Break Chocolate Chip Crisp morning.

The Atkins website says, "Morning's never been sweeter or more satisfying. We bring on the chocolate chips and a rich, chocolaty bottom layer. Dream of chocolate, wide awake." I opened the package of one bar and found a nicely sized (35-gram) bar of crisps (soy nuggets) with a chocolate coating on the bottom and studded with chocolate chips. I took a bite and tasted the nuttiness of the soy nuggets, soybeans, and almonds, and also tasted ... coconut! That was quite an unexpected surprise, but it was quite pleasurable. I liked the crispiness of these, and the chocolate intermingled and on the bottom was just perfect. Like a plain granola bar but much more indulgent.

Each Atkins Day Break Chocolate Chip Crisp Bar provides 140 calories, 6 grams of total fat, 3 grams of which is saturated (9% and 15% of the daily value), 6 grams of fiber (24% of the DV), 10 grams of protein, 1 gram of sugar alcohols and no sugar. The ingredients list shows that the (non-caloric) sweeteners sucralose and acesulfame K are used.

Most (if not all) of our Atkins bar reviews have shown that the bars have a high saturated fat count, but it's nice that this bar is sugar free, but protein and fiber rich, tasty and at a reasonable calorie count to boot. These bars are available on Amazon.comat $4.69 for a 5-pack and I will definitely be buying these again.
