Snicker’s Fudge is the latest limited edition that has reached the shelves as of late. It was supposed to be in store by August, but I didn’t end up seeing any until late September and Early October. They were also kinda hard to find, I looked in many places and it wasn’t until I went to Rite Aid did I find them in a aisle display. Talk about the thrill of the hunt!
So what is a Snicker’s Fudge? The wrapper explains “Fudge with peanut butter nougat & peanuts wrapped in milk chocolate”, but that doesn’t help me much. Why is there no mention of fudge? I’m very confused. I guess the only way to really find out is to eat it, right?
Opening the wrapper it smells like a Milky Way bar: chocolatey, sweet, and creamy. I get no hints of peanuts or salt like I do with normal Snickers bars. The bar looks like a normal Snicker’s from the outside, but once I took a bit, you immediately see (and taste) the difference. Here’s how the construction works: under all the enrobing, the top is peanuts and a chocolate fudge ripple, and the bottom the peanut butter nougat. So it looks like they replaced the caramel with fudge.
The first bite immediately delivers a fresh peanut taste, with a strong salty/sweet combination of the nuts and chocolate coating. The center has this dry graininess to it, like real fudge has. The nougat is less fluffy than normal, and it’s a little more dense. The lack of caramel makes it much drier, and stickier to chew.
I was disappointed with this bar. I knew I wouldn’t find a limited edition to take the Snicker’s Rockin’ Nut Road as my favorite, but I was still hoping for something that was at least interesting. This bar did nothing for me, it was just boring.
