Endulge in a Snickers by Atkins?!
THEY ARE OMFG DELICIOUS.
Having said that, are they diet material?
I've decided to do a comparison between the Atkins version and the real Snickers, because basically this is a Snickers knock off.
In the interest of fairness, I've actually done the math so that one serving of Atkins (34grams) had the same weight as the Snickers. So I used data from the Snickers 2 to go, 47grams 2 servings. Of course it's still not perfect, because of the chocolate covering and blablabla...
Atkins 34 grams Snickers 34 grams So Atkins...

Dietary Fiber 6g 0.5g +5.5g

So, what do you think?
Is it worth it? Should we just avoid chocolate all together? These snacks aren't on the cheap side...
