I think those are the bars that they issue to soldiers on training excercises to increase their bone structure density

Read:

Enhanced performance bar

The chocolate Enhanced Performance Bar, or EPB, fortified with calcium and vitamin D, has been available to Army basic trainees at Fort Benning, Georgia, and Air Force basic trainees at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas, for the past year as part of a pilot program.

Now, Moody said, availability of the EPB has been expanded to the remaining Army basic combat training locations at Fort Jackson, South Carolina; Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri; and Fort Sill, Oklahoma.

The chocolate bar has been tested by the U.S. Army Research Institute for Environmental Medicine at Natick and evidence has shown that the bar can measurably increase bone density. The hope is that issuing the bar during basic combat training will help reduce stress fractures, Moody said, and reduce injury-related attrition.
