If you are actually on the Atkins Diet and you need a snack, take a shot on this one. If you are not on the Atkins Diet, skip this! For the price, you get mild flavor and not much in the way of filling you up. This tastes exactly like you would think a low-calorie chocolate peanut butter bar would taste. Not worth it unless you are dieting, even then maybe avoid it anyways.
I enjoy eating these
These bars have a great peanut butter taste covered in chocolate with bits of nuts inside. I dont have an appetite and eating these makes me feel better knowing im getting some nutrition without eating loads of carbs. Like I would in a bowl of cereal. To me they are very filling and easy to take on the go special driving the kids to school. I wish the price could be a but lower. I find myself grabbing otger bars lately that are much lower(not as tastey though) If you love peanutbutter you will enjoy these. I would much rather eat half one of these then a high sugar high carb candy bar. When I want a snack ill grab half a bar of one of these. Yes they are high in calories but thats why they are a meal replacement. For those trying to watch there carb in take and enjoy peanutbutter you cant go wrong. From time to time these boxes will have coupons in them for future purchases.
an instant low carb meal
This bar has a wonderful chocolate taste, to the point that it is hard to believe it is low carb. It has worked for me because it is an easy way to manage portion size, along with the fact that it's convenient and portable. I personally use them as a substitute for lunch.
I won't eat it even when it is free. Atkins Advantage Bar.
The first Atkins Meal Bar I have tried is the Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar. I liked the fact that it is a big bar, net weight 2.1 ounce (60g). Upon opening the wrapper, it looks a cross between milk, and dark chocolate. The smell is of peanut butter, and is very strong.
The bar is four inches x one and a half inches x half an inch.
The chocolate is a generic kind, and really doesn't taste of chocolate at all. The peanut butter, tastes mildly of peanuts, but not of butter.
I could easily have stopped at the first bite, but to give an honest review I had to eat at least half the bar.
It is bland, and tastes of nothing. I would much rather buy an energy bar, or a meal replacement bar from Walmart. At least I would enjoy it.
It states that it is 'Naturally and artificially flavored.

It left me with an awful aftertaste too.

Atkins Peanut Butter or yellow play doh?
I have been an on and off Atkins dieter for years so I have tried this product in the "old" version, and I believe this is the new and improved version. To me, this still tastes like I imagine a chocolate peanut butter bar made of PlayDoh would taste! My husband eats them, but he doesn't love them either. As a chocolate/peanut butter combo lover, I just can't stomach these for a meal. The good thing is they are only 2 grams of carbohydrates so they are acceptable for all phases of the Atkins diet. They are quick and easy to grab and very portable when you need a lunch on the go. Atkins does offer this on their web-site as part of their "free weight loss kit" that you can send away for so before buying a box, you may want to go there and request the samples because they are not inexpensive.
I eat a lot of snack bars because I am constantly on the go, so I am always trying to find snacks that are healthy but have a lot of flavor. I had a coupon for these Atkins bars and they sounded terrific. The combination of chocolate and peanut butter is amazing, so I figured these bars would taste great. I was wrong because these bars are very bland. They may be healthy but they lack the sweet flavor I was looking for. The good thing abou these bars is they are packed with nutrients and each bar is 240 calories and 10 grams of fat, so they are more of a meal than a snack. The peanut butter is very dry and chewy and the rich chocolate coating I was looking for lacked any sweet chocolate flavor. This tastes like a health bar, and is a bit pricey. It has a lot of protein to keep you full, but it does not have the rich peanut butter and chocolate flavor I craved. They are easy to eat on the go and good for an energizing meal throughout the day. The texture of the bar is more chewy than crunchy and the sweetness tastes artificial.
