Default Another bar ???

Ok, I was comparison shopping today at vitamin world and the guy there told me starting next week they are having a huge sale on a bar called Pure Protein. 6 bars for $1.50. I picked one up to compare and WOOF! They are some bit higher in sodium, a lot lower in carbs, but they have 18-20 grams of protien per bar. Would this be more like a meal replacement than a lite? The lites have 8-10 g of protein.

Thanks chicks - the bar I bought for a sample is this:
180 calories vs 170 for lite caramel crunch
6g fat vs 3.5g for lite caramel crunch
180 mg sodium vs 75 for the lite
19 g carbos vs 30 g for the lite
18 g protein vs 8 for the lite

I guess it falls in between a lite and a meal replacement shake - it doesn't have enough calories or carbs to use as a meal replacement. sigh... it was such a good buy too!
