"Peanut butter and chocolate just got better!" claims the promo for the new Snickers Peanut Butter Squared campaign. But did they? We Slashfooders ran out for a bag of the new candy bars (each a 1.78-ounce square) as soon as they hit the store shelves today. I mean, it's a Snickers, the classic chocolate bar. What's to improve?
Turns out, not much. "I'm not getting the peanut," said one editor. "The nougat flavor is overwhelming." "I wanted more peanut butter," said our resident candy fanatic. "I feel like I've been duped!" And our resident candy curmudgeon said, "It's kind of a mess."
The verdict? Keep it classic, Snickers, with just the peanuts (singular) or up the ante on the peanut butter. But we still love you.
