Snickers Peanut Butter

Snickers Peanut Butter

Ah, Snickers: the old standby. It’s not the most exciting candy bar in the store, but it’s always there when you need it, and it’s always tasty. I like Snickers. I also like peanut butter. So, is this two great tastes that taste great together? Uh… kind of?

Snickers Peanut Butter is divided into two square chunks. Each one consists of a layer of nougat, topped with a layer of peanut butter filled with chunks of peanuts, topped with a layer of caramel, and all enrobed in milk chocolate.

It’s not bad. The first thing you notice is that it’s very, very sweet – cloyingly so, but with a strong salty kick that attempts to balance things out. It’s a bit of a throat-searing combination, but it did grow on me after a while.

Between the peanut butter, the nougat, the caramel and the chocolate, there’s a lot going on in this bar. Maybe a little too much; the peanut butter doesn’t really stand out as much as you’d think it would, considering that it is ostensibly the main attraction here. I should also note that the peanut distribution is somewhat uneven – my first square had almost no peanuts, while the second was actually quite peanutty.

The whole thing reminds me a lot of Reese’s Fast Break, which is another bar that I’m not crazy about (the very Reese’s-esque thick, crumbly peanut butter certainly solidifies this connection).
