My fiance found these Butterfinger Snackerz at the candy stash that he has at his work, and thoughtfully brought me home a package for the blog. It looks like this is how Butterfinger is trying to make its way into the “snack food” genre and out of the “candy bar” aisle. The package is a decent size for a candy snack and has all the looks and familiar appearance of a Butterfinger candy bar. It’s been ages since I’ve had a Butterfinger, as it’s not one of my favorites. Still, I’m curious to give them a try to see if it lives up to the original.
The Snackerz are about the size of a frosted mini wheat. The are a muted, dusty chocolate brown with orange drizzle stripes on them. You can tell just by the appearance that these are not real chocolate, and a peek at the ingredients list only confirms my suspicions. The smelly very intensely of peanut butter.
They are very light and crispy, which the peanut butter interior works very well with. The flavor is very intense of the salty peanut butter inside. It’s flavorful and salty, which peanut butter should be. The chocolate exterior is gross. It’s boring and flavorless. It has no taste and a slightly slick texture. The candy left crap stuck in my teeth which is super annoying.
On the whole, I didn’t like these very much. The mockolate is bland and the peanut butter crisp is flavorful but irritating to eat. I’ll have to try a traditional Butterfinger now to see how it measures up.
