These are junk food. I still will eat them in a pinch or to help with my sweet tooth, but I am fully aware that they are garbage.
I eat fairly low carb, and still have a sweet tooth. This can usually be satisfied with diet soda or berries. Atkins bars are not as good as eating some cheese and fruit for a quick sweet snack, but still better than a Snickers bar.
I will sometimes take one on a bike ride with me so I have something compact and easy to eat in the middle of a long ride. Most nutrition bars for exercising are packed full of so much sugar that they are worse than candy, so I consider this a healthIER alternative to the carb bombs I could be eating. But I am aware that it is still essentially garbage that I am getting away with because I am also exercising!
