Reactions from the Taste Test Crew
Husband – The Peanut Bar reminds me of a Payday candy bar with its sweet
& salty taste and peanut butter creaminess, but it's more of a
nougat creaminess, not traditional peanut butter. The Pecan Bar tastes
like Butter Pecan ice cream. This one is for dessert, not breakfast.
Give it to your kids instead of a candy bar.
Greedy Kid #2 – The peanut butter and nut butter coatings set it apart.
Greedy Kid #3 – It tastes like ice cream on top of a honey bun. (Translation? It's sweet.)
Yum UP! to: Salty, nutty sweetness with better taste and less calories than a candy bar.
Yuck Down! to: High Fructose Corny-ness
