Snickers Marathon Multi-Grain Crunch Bar

marathon.jpgTo me, most nutrition/energy/protein bars have a texture similar to vulcanized rubber and a taste to match. However, to my surprise the Multi-Grain Crunch bar was an awesome snack worthy of the Snickers name. The crunchy texture of the peanuts, oats, wheat and rice was quite invigorating. The soft chocolate layer on the bottom of the bar tasted just like the chocolate on a Snickers candy bar and complemented the crunchiness perfectly. In addition, I could detect only a trace of the vitamin and mineral supplement flavor that is often prominent in most energy bars. To be honest it tasted more like a candy bar than a nutrition bar. Hence, the only problem with the bar is that it falls into a kind of candy bar/nutrition bar purgatory. For a nutrition bar it is somewhat modest in terms of, wellÖ nutritional value. But itís not quite a candy bar either. Bottom line, if you aren't a serious athlete but are craving a candy bar and donít want to overwhelm yourself with guilt, this bar is perfect.
