Snickers Marathon Nutrition Bar (Dark Chocolate Crunch) Review

Snickers Marathon Nutrition barDark Chocolate Crunch)My fist foray into Snickers Marathon Bar left me rather disappointed after finding the Snickers Marathon Nutrition Bar (Honey & Toasted Almond) flavor pretty unpalatable. But when I saw a Dark Chocolate flavor, I was willing to give this brand another chance. Plus, my friend Rachel had told me that the Snickers Marathon Nutrition Bar in Crunchy Dark Chocolate was really good. I picked up a 44.2 gram bar for $1.89 at the grocery store.

Like the Honey & Toasted Almond flavor, this one was composed of a protein meshwork and dipped in chocolate. It smelled great (I can't resist dark chocolate), and dug in right away. This flavor, unlike the other one, was DELICIOUS. Despite the fact that the name made no mention of it, I was sure that this bar contained peanuts. Sure enough, when I flipped it over, peanuts were an ingredient! I'm a sucker for the dark chocolate + peanut combination, and this was a great mix of the two flavors.

Snickers Honey & Toasted Almond Marathon Nutrition BarI was in the grocery store with my friend Rachel the other day, and I was on the hunt for a nutrition bar. As I scanned over the Balance and Kashi Bars that I tend to gravitate towards, my eyes lit on a Snickers Marathon Nutrition Bar in Honey & Toasted Almond. Snickers - a nutrition bar? Get outta here! Needless to say, I had to sample this. Plus, Rachel gave me her seal of approval, so it was a no-brainer: I picked one up for $1.89.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 bar (44 grams)
Calories: 150
Total Fat: 4.5 grams, 7%
Saturated Fat: 2 grams, 10%
Sodium: 125 mg, 5%
Protein: 10 grams
Carbohydrates: 22 grams
Fiber: 7 grams, 28%
Sugar: 10 grams
Price: $1.89 ea.

Later that day, I opened the Marathon Bar to sample it. The bar was similar to other Snicker bars I've had in appearance, consisting of a grain-rich matrix dipped in (milk) chocolate. It smelled sweet, and I took a bite. The honey was overpowering, and the combination of that with the almond flavor was too much. Still, I ate the whole thing, to see if giving it a little more time would make it better (it didn't).

The one thing the Snickers Marathon Honey & Toasted Almond Nutrition Bar does have going for it is nutrition. Each 44.2 gram bar provides that's for sure, weighing in at 150 calories, 10 grams of protein and sugar, and 28% of the daily value for fiber.
