Nutrition Information on a Mars Bar

It can be tempting to reach for a chocolate bar in the afternoon to provide a burst of sugar to get you through your workday. If you enjoy the combination of chocolate, nougat and caramel, a Mars bar might be your first choice. Chocolate bars have a high caloric content due to sugar, which means you should enjoy this sort of treat only occasionally.
