Want to feel good about your next snack time? With SCNS Sports Foods' Marathon of Miracle bars, you can support cancer wellness programs while filling your belly with healthy snack ingredients. Net profits from sales of Marathon of Miracle bars are donated to a related non-profit foundation whose mission is to end cancer through wellness and disease prevention education.
The foundation strongly supports healthy nutrition, and their beliefs are reflected in their snack products. The all-natural food bars, available in Fruit & Nut and Dark Chocolate & Nut flavors, contain oats, soy and organic flaxseed and are primarily sweetened with agave nectar. The bars provide eight grams of whole grains and four grams of fiber per serving.
The Fruit & Nut bar, at 190 calories, seven grams of protein and eight grams of fat, contains a blend of "super foods": four fruits (blueberries, cranberries, pomegranate and goji berries) and five nuts/seeds (almonds and peanuts, pumpkin, sunflower and sesame seeds). With the same blend of nuts/seeds, the Dark Chocolate & Nut bar delivers 200 calories with eight grams of protein and 11 grams of fat.
We were impressed with the overall taste and size of the Marathon of Miracles bars. At 1.6 oz (45g), they are pretty hefty snacks. However, due to their calorie and fat content, we recommend consuming them for healthy weight gain or as an on-the-go breakfast option, paired with a serving of fruit.
Exclusively distributed by SCNS Sports Foods, Marathon of Miracle Bars can be purchased online. Check back for our review of SCNS Sports Foods' golf-specific 1st and 10th Tee Energy Bars.
