So, we were in Wal*Mart the other night, and I noticed a box I'd long been ignoring:
Atkins Endulge Chocolate Covered Coconut Bar. Come. To. Mama.
For real. WHAT is Beth's favorite cookie in the whole wide world? Chocolate dipped macaroons?! Maybe, maybe not, I'm just sayin'. I'm not going to tell you that I have the sick urge to make you some loverly Lindt-dipped homemade macaroons for Christmas, because, that's just. plain. wrong.
And, IT TASTES LIKE A CHOCOLATE DIPPED MACAROON!
This is a totally unpaid endorsement, I really enjoyed these bars. As junk food alternative with a huge boost of protein, it's a winner. I have the inclination to maybe cut these up into four pieces and use them as between meal chocolate treats.
That, and, if you caught my mistake - I thought these were the Atkins Coconut protein bars, they're not - they are snack bars, and they taste like a little bit of heaven, but... but... but... they contain the chemical of death by farts. Maltitol. If it doesn't effect you - I say RUN to the store and try these, they are FANTASTIC tasting. If it effects you like it effects me? Skip 'em. I had just saved this post exclaiming these bars as super, and then I realized, I screwed up - I was reading about the wrong ones.... and I had eaten a different variety ALL TOGETHER.
These Endulge Bars, are a candy alternative - not so much a protein bar:
NGREDIENTS: COCONUT (CONTAINS METABISULFITE), CHOCOLATE COATING [POLYDEXTROSE, COCOA BUTTER, CALCIUM CASEINATE, COCOA POWDER (PROCESSED WITH ALKALI), SOY LECITHIN, VANILLA, SUCRALOSE], MALTITOL, POLYDEXTROSE, GLYCERINE, WHEY PROTEIN ISOLATE, SALT, SOY LECITHIN, NATURAL AND ARTIFICIAL FLAVOR, POTassIUM SORBATE (A PRESERVATIVE), SUCRALOSE. CONTAINS: MILK, SOY, AND SULFITES.
If they would remove the maltitol, I'd drop these bars from the rooftops.
