Review: Snickers Peanut Butter Squared

 Snickers Peanut Butter Squared isn't the first time peanut butter has been added to a Snickers bar but it does change the Snickers standard candy bar shape into two wider squares. Well, unless you got yours for Halloween like I did, in which case, you only get one mini square.

If you're picking up the standard bar though it should run you about $1.

You might not expect the addition of a layer of peanut butter to change the taste of a Snickers much, but it actually does.

The reason for this is because in adding the peanut butter layer, the caramel is separated into its own layer rather than mixed with peanuts as in the standard version. The peanut butter layer also has the sporadic peanut for random crunchiness and a dry paste-like consistency similar to a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. It's not as peanut buttery or salty though.

Basically, the peanut butter layer comes at the expense of the caramel. The blend of chewy caramel and roasted peanuts is the heart of the Snicker experience and separating the caramel and peanut butter into layers dulls the whole thing. Also for something called "Peanut Butter Squared," there needs to be a stronger peanut butter flavor overall.

In sum, I rather just have a regular Snickers but it you feel like Snickers and peanut butter would go great together, Snickers Peanut Butter Squared is certainly worth a try.
