Now we are not encouraging you to hit the gym and then stuff your face BUT if you are craving a sweet treat and you also want something that packs some protein and allows you to hit your macros then this isn’t the worst option!
Mars have created a version of their popular bars Mars and Snickers which you can pretend are good for you. Because they are. Sort of anyway.
Mars Protein: Protein 19 g Fat: 5 g Carbs: 22 g of which sugars: 13 g Calories: 200
Standard Mars: Protein 3 g Fat: 10 g, Carbs: 40 g of which sugars: 25 g, Calories: 260
Snickers Protein: Protein 18 g Fat: 7.1 g Carbs: 18.4g of which sugars: 9.5 g Calories: 199
Standard Snickers: Protein 5 g Fat: 13 g, Carbs: 26 g of which sugars: 22 g, Calories: 245
Basically, they have replaced the sugary nougat-y bit with a protein-packed nougat-y bit. 18/19 grams of protein, to be precise. WOW. They also come in at 200 calories.
Are they a healthier option than scrambled egg and salmon for example? Don’t be silly they are chocolate and caramel after all. But if you have a chocolate cravings post-workout, this could be the best solution.
