The Reese’s Crispy Crunch Bar is “made with chocolate, crispy peanut butter candy, creamy peanut butter, chopped peanuts.” Sounds fabulous. Also sounds quite similar to the Snicker’s Nut ‘n Butter Crunch, except the Reese’s version contained real,creamy peanut butter.
Upon unwrapping the bar, I was hit with a strong smell of genuine peanuts and peanut butter. Like in the Snicker’s Nut ‘n Butter Crunch, I was disappointed that the peanuts were unroasted and therefore rather bland. The texture of the peanuts was not noticeable against the peanut butter candy, which turned out to be some sort of peanut butter flavored toffee or brittle. Its texture was more crumbly than I expected, and I loved the way it broke against my teeth.
Overall, I think the bar could stand to be saltier, but the sweet chocolate finish isn’t too bad. An OMG for a tasty, if rather messy, bar.
