The primary ingredients in a Snickers bar are chocolate, caramel, fluffy nougat filling and peanuts. However, there are many other ingredients that make the recipe complete and the candy bar a popular treat.
According to the official Snickers website, the following ingredients are what make Snickers so delicious. Mars Incorporated, the company that makes Snickers, has released flavor variations in the past, such as peanut butter Snickers. However, these ingredients are for the original candy bar:
- Milk chocolate, which contains sugar, chocolate, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, artificial flavors and dairy in the form of skim milk, milkfat and lactose.
- Corn syrup and sugar
- Milkfat, skim milk, and lactose
- Partially hydrogenated soybean oil
- Egg whites
- May contain almonds
- Artificial flavoring
These ingredients are what give a typical 1.8-ounce Snickers bar 250 calories and 12 fat grams. The bar also contains 33 grams of carbohydrates with 4 grams of protein.
