    There are targeted to people who would otherwise buy a regular snickers bar.

    They "think" they are attaining something healthier.

    Wonderful marketing ploy, and they will indeed make millions because of it.

    Lovely misleading society we live in.

    It looks llike a joke but I'm sure plenty of fat asses will buy those bars thinking they are "healthy"
    If you don't shut your fucking mouth, I will kill you.

    Sport, truth, like art, is in the eye of the beholder. You believe what you choose and I'll believe what I know.
    Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice;
    it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.
