Most people up until a few weeks ago used to look at me like I was crazy when I told them about Peanut Butter Snickers. They would act like it was some wild fantasy I had made up. Even when I described to them the red wrapper and how delicious it was. The details weren't enough. They wanted to see a pic of it online. Well...there's legitimately only ONE picture of it on the damn Internet. Here it is.
It's small and it's crappy but there you go. That's solid proof.

Well none of that means anything anymore because Snickers has brought back the Peanut butter version, but this time it's in little squares. So for all of you out there, I decided it needed to be reviewed on FGFB!

Not sure why they decided to go with the yellow packaging on this one. Maybe I'm just fond of the old red look. Probably just because I'm the only one who remembers it. Like one of those sci-fi movies where someones life gets erased and they are the only one who knows the truth. 

You get two of these little squares in every pack. Don't be fooled by the shape, thinking you're getting a full candy bar. They had to get fancy and whip this one up in little fancy squares. So how was it?

It's a squishy mix of Chocolate, caramel, nougat, and peanut butter. How could that be bad? It's a little different than the original from back in 1998. In that one it was basically chocolate, nougat and a thick layer of peanut butter with some nuts. This one seems to be a bit lighter , probably due to the nougat being a different recipe. That and the addition of the caramel. 

Did I like it? Yes I did. I've now probably eaten four or five of them. Did I love it? Ehhhhhh. I'm on the fence. It's missing something. I think the flavors somewhat blend together a bit too much. Perhaps MORE PEANUT BUTTER would tip the scales and make it a truly fantastic candy bar. But don't get me wrong, it's quite delicious and I recommend it. 
On the candy bar scale, I'd give it a B. 
(apparently we adopted an A-F scale?)


  1. I give these a strong B+.
    The only thing that would make them an A is if they had peanuts with the sugary coating on them (like twix ice cream bars have). Every time I hit a peanut in these, I wish they had that extra umph of sugar.

    I LOVE the 2 squares instead of 1 bar gimmick. I think it makes these unique and more fun to eat.

    (totally got only 1 last week though... still weirded out about that)

  2. I remember the original peanut butter snickers, with the red package. One of the only positive memories I have with my dad is him buying one for me for a paper bag lunch I took on a field trip to Seattle as a kid. It was so delicious.

  3. I remember the old peanut butter snickers. I thought I was the only one. The squares are good. But the old was amazingly delicious. I miss it. A lot. :(
