Great Taste, So So Nutrition Jul 20, 2009
By Philip R. Heath

Snickers Marathon Chocolate Nut Burst Protein Bars are a middle of the road protein/energy bar. I really like the taste of these, and their 22g of protein is the highest content of any of the protein bars that I regularly eat - Cliff Builder, Kashi, and Promax being the others. They are also fairly high in electrolytes with 360mg of Sodium and 260mg of Potassium, and these are important to those who train hard and need the extra minerals. The one downside to these is that their sugar content (at least in part) comes from corn syrup and high fructose corn syrup. The other products that I mentioned avoid this by using more natural sources such as evaporated cane juice. Because of the sweetener, I do not use any of the Snickers products as my primary protein bars. I use them more as a change of pace to keep from burning out on the others. For the more nutritious conscious, I would recommend products from Cliff, Kashi, or Promax. While these are better than a regular candy bar, you can still do better.
Great Fiber bar for most people. Jan 17, 2013

The nurse at the nursing home suggested this bar for my mother. It is loaded with fiber. Unfortunately, Mom didn't like them so I had the nursing home distribute them to the other residents... They liked them. Mom's a fussy eater, she would like a regular Snickers bar over the fiber ones. Oh well... I've never found one fiber bar that she liked. This bar was the favorite of the other residents, though.
Not too bad at all Oct 05, 2011
A friend of mine told me to try one of these. I've always been skeptical of these bars because of the Snickers name attached. Not that Snickers bars taste bad, but it's just not a name you associate with "lean and muscular."
I checked out the nutritional info and it compares pretty favorably with comparable bars. 14% daily fat, 15% sat fat, 13% carbs, 44% fiber, 21 g of protein, 280 calories.
It tastes a lot better than your average meal-replacement bar, too. I don't know if I'd go with these regularly, but for a change of pace, they're pretty good.
Will become a mainstay Jan 24, 2011
Take it from somebody who has been at dieting awhile. You won't stick with something you don't like. These have decent nutrition with a low GI and have better than average taste.
Marathon Bars Sep 15, 2010
By Shirley A. Lawso
I love these bars! They are excellent when I want a protein boost, or want something that will fill me up in between meals. I prefer the Chocolatey Nut Burst to the Caramel Nut Ruch. I also LOVE the energy bars, especially the Dark Chocolate Crunch. Keeps me from feeling guilty when I want a snack because it's not really a candy bar.
