About this deal

Full disclosure: I’ve never had a Mars bar. From what I understand, the Mars bar is to candy bars as Football is to sports. The nougat layer (if you can call it that) is very dense & chewy, and it tastes very much like a generic protein bar. There are many bars out there that have this particular flavor profile, so if you’ve ever had a very basic protein bar (Pure Protein bars are a good example) then you’ll know exactly what I mean. To make it even more confusing, the Milky Way bar exists in other parts of the world, but it’s much more similar to the US version of a 3 Muskateers bar. Talk about confusing! This particular Mars bar is salted caramel flavor, and that extra hit of saltiness really comes through. When this Mars Hi Protein bar is viewed through that lens, it’s actually really good! Like the other bars I tried, it is definitely on the dense side, so it is overall chewier than a Milky Way.

Allergen Information: Contains MILK, GLUTEN, PEANUTS and SOYA ingredients. May contain; PECANS, HAZELNUTS, ALMONDS and EGG Albumin. I mean, if you can take one of the best candy bars out there and infuse it with protein, it will be an absolute game-changer in the protein bar market. I’ll give my honest thoughts on each individual bar, but I will say this: overall, the UK versions of these bars are significantly better than the US version.

Snickers Protein Powder - Chocolate Caramel & Peanut (12 Servings - 480g)

Sure, it contains peanuts and somewhat of a caramel flavor, but it doesn’t eat at all like a candy bar.

Other Ingredients:Protein Blend (19%) ( MILK Protein Isolate, MILK Protein, WHEY [MILK] Protein Concentrate (from MILK), Emulsifier ( SOYA Lecithin)), MILK Chocolate (15%) (Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Skimmed MILK Powder, Cocoa Mass, LACTOSE and Protein from WHEY [MILK] (from MILK), Palm Fat, WHEY [MILK] Powder (from MILK), MILK Fat, Emulsifier ( SOYA Lecithin E476), Natural Vanilla Extract), Hydrolysed Collagen (14%), Caramel (14%) (Sweetened Condensed Skimmed MILK, Glucose Syrup, Invert Sugar Syrup, Palm Oil, Butter (from MILK), Sugar, Emulsifier (E471), Stabiliser (Pectin), Salt, Natural Flavouring), Humectant (Maltitol), PEANUTS (10%), Humectant (Glycerol), PEANUT Flour, Fructo-Oligosaccharide, Natural Flavouring ( PEANUT), Salt, Colour (Plain Caramel), Antioxidant (Natural Mixed Tocopherols. For the purposes of this review, we’ll consider a Mars bar to be virtually the same thing as a US Milky Way bar. Upon breaking the bar open, no soft & gooey caramel was revealed. Instead, just a hardened layer of caramel that you could peel apart from the “nougat” underneath. Mars Incorporated is driven by the belief that the world we want tomorrow starts with how we do business today. As a global, family-owned business, Mars is transforming, innovating, and evolving to make a positive impact on the world.

But going on flavor alone, this truly resembles a candy bar. The caramel layer is nice and soft, and while not quite the same caramel as you’d find in a Milky Way bar, it’s not far off. Across the globe, every nation recognizes Football as the same sport…except the US, where we call it soccer. The Mars bar exists across the globe as the same candy bar… except in the US, where we call it a Milky Way. The US did have its own Mars bar at some point, but it has since been discontinued.
