In brief: Definebadbarandlow

There are different bars, with varying levels of sugar and additives.
Can you get energy from eating a chocolate bar? Yes, short term anyway. Can that be a pick-me-up when your energy is low? Yes. But if you're hypoglycemic pre diabetic or not eating a balanced diet, it's a short term solution to a long term problem and ultimately won't help. If by bad you mean unhealthy, not in moderation.
