Snickers Protein

Snickers Has Gotten Into The Protein Bar Business (Photos)

Snickers now come as protein bars, so you can munch on your favorite candy and chalk it up to healthy snacking. We live in a fascinating time.

Mars, the maker of Snickers, Twix and M&M's, has answered the prayers of fitness-inclined folks and those who wish that their treats could have a little more nutritional value by giving us all this beautiful new product.

"Are you a fan of the unmistakable chewy [center], distinctive caramel and delicious chocolate in a MARS bar?" Mars says on their website for the new protein bars, which also come in a Mars Bar variety. "Or do you love to 'get some nuts' with your favorite SNICKERS bar? Well now you can have all the great taste you love in a SNICKERS Protein bar. … If you're looking for a new and tasty way to enjoy protein, you'll love these new high protein bars!"

The Snickers Protein bar has a whopping 18 grams of protein, while the Mars Protein bar has 19 grams. Both have fewer than 200 calories each.

For comparison, regular Snickers bars have 279.9 calories and 4.3 grams of protein, notes Eat This Much.

Sadly, these diet-friendly delights are only being sold in the U.K,, according to PopSugar, but I'm hoping they find their way to the U.S. very soon!

In the meantime, though, you can use this wonderful thing called the internet and grab some via Amazon. At $8.32 for two bars, they are a tad on the pricey side, although you can get free shipping all the way from the U.K., so it's a decent deal if you want to get your fix.
