The Laidback Gourmet: Peanut Butter Snickers

Welcome to another edition of the Laidback Gourmet, where the only place that has more chocolate than us is mythical “Land of Chocolate.” You know… Germany. Honestly, I wish there was a place like Homer’s vision because let me tell you, I loves me some chocolate. And, one of my favorite chocolate bars is Snickers. What’s not to love? Chocolate, nougat, caramel, peanuts… it’s got it all. So when I saw a commercial where sharks told me how delicious the brand new Peanut Butter Snickers, I was there. I mean… why would sharks lie? So if you haven’t guessed yet, we’ll be taking a look at Peanut Butter Snickers today.

Now wait… I’ve been calling them Peanut Butter Snickers, but the name on the wrapper says “Snickers Peanut Butter”. Maybe its me but that doesn’t sound right. That sounds like I’m buying Peanut Butter that’s suppose to taste like a Snickers. Of course if something like that was real it might be even more delicious than Nutella which is already something that is already close to being a controlled substance. Anywho, let’s open this up and see what we got:

Oh look, there’s two of them. Apparently they took the Almond Joy route here. I suppose that’ll be the real benchmark to how good this candy bar is. If its good enough to share… or if it’s TOO good to share. Well, before I dig in, let’s cut one in half and take a look at its various layers… as if we were geologists and the earth was a delicious piece of candy and… and I feel like this analogy is dying a slow death here, let’s just cut the darn thing.

Hmm, kinda looks like a standard Snickers bar, so let’s just try this thing already!

*Nom Nom Nom*

Mmm, that’s pretty darned good. They definitely didn’t skimp on the peanut butter, there’s plenty of it in them. Maybe a little bit too much since you mostly can only taste peanut butter and chocolate. On the plus side, there’s nothing wrong with peanut butter and chocolate so I can forgive the lack of caramel taste. All in all its not a bad edition to the Snicker’s family, but call me a purist but I still prefer the standard Snickers bar. Still, it was a good piece of candy. 8/10.

Well that concludes another edition of the Laidback Gourmet. Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed.
