Mars, Inc. Compliment - Seriously, this is nothing to snicker about...
I recently found myself confronted and cornered by the vending machine on the way back to my office, just before lunch. If I didn't know any better, I'd say it had legs and a mind of its own...but I digress.
A new product in the machine caught my curious and wandering eye. It was a Snickers candy bar, but infused with peanut butter. It was wrapped and packaged "Snickers Peanut Butter Squared"...a play on words, since it is not only square shaped, but divided into two parts. The literary humor alone was well worth the $1 being asked by the devil in disguise as a machine with buttons, candy racks, and all those fancy bells and whistles. Again...I stray from the topic at hand.
I recently tried a Mars w/ Caramel, and it was literally just that...CARAMEL! The entire thing was almost like eating a Rolo of sorts. However, this Snickers Squared stayed true to its roots and didn't allow the peanut butter to control the palate of taste. Instead, it kept the basic ingredients of a regular Snickers and just incorporated a generous, but tolerable amount of peanut butter. Near perfection!
I would rate this creative confectionery a 9-out-10 stars!
(I withheld the 10th star because the packaging states "save one for later"...yeah, sure. Like that's going to happen!
