Sanders Peanut Butter Crispies and Milk Chocolate Pecan Titan

October 14th, 2011 by Rosa

Today I’m wrapping up my coverage of the Sanders chocolates that I bought in a hospital gift shop. In case you missed it, I reviewed their Milk Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel on Wednesday.

Today I’m covering the Peanut Butter Crispies (top) and Milk Chocolate Pecan Titan (bottom right).

Was it a coincidence that the Peanut Butter Crispies came in an orange wrapper? I wonder how often candy companies try to emulate Reeses’ orange wrapper when packaging their own peanut butter candies.

Like the Sea Salt Caramel, the chocolate here was fairly standard. The peanut butter center was nutty and dry, like a reconstituted powder. It tasted mild and natural, like freshly ground peanut butter.

The crispies were great. They were almost impossibly light, with a great puffy air crunch. It made the chocolate nearly irridescent!

My only complaint was that the treat needed just a hint more salt to really bring about that perfect marriage of sweet chocolate to nutty peanut butter. An OM.

Finally, the Milk Chocolate Pecan Titan. As best as I could tell from the image on the wrapper, it was basically a pecan turtle.

The sweet milk chocolate hid a creamy caramel with tiny bits of roasted pecans. The pecans here were mildly flavored and brought just a light nuttiness. I wished they had a stronger nuttiness.

The caramel here, too, was lacking oomph. It was somehow more mild here, perhaps without the salt of the Milk Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel to punch it up.

The treat was okay but paled in comparison to the other two. An O.
