At first people weren’t too sure, could Snickers really make a protein bar taste as good as their world famous bar? Well, after a lot of work in the food lab it seems as though they did pretty well! Slightly different to the regular snickers, yet still holding true to its roots the Snickers Protein bar has done great and is already in our top sellers list. With great feedback and many rebuying these bars it’s clear these are here to stay (we love them too!).
With 18g of protein and plenty of Snickers taste from the chocolate, caramel and nuts they’re famous for, this is one serious protein bar!
Great natural taste, high in protein (18g per bar) and a good amount of carbohydrates from oats (36g of carbs per bar), the XL Nutrition High Protein Flapjack is a heavy hitter in the protein bar category.
When it comes to overall value, these bars really are hard to beat and that’s exactly the feedback we’ve had too. If you’re looking for a quick, easy way to add in some calories then one of these bars is perfect for that. Even just having in a drawer or cupboard nearby this bar makes for an excellent ‘go to’ when you’re feeling peckish, or want something to give a decent boost of energy.
