The Snickers Fudge Bar


Mars has done it again! Not the planet, the candy company, although the new Special Edition Snickers Fudge Bar could be considered astronomical. Just when we all thought we had curbed our hunger with all possible variations of Snickers bars, they release this bad boy of chocolate for a limited time.

I’m talking Nougat, Peanut Butter, and Peanuts, slammed with Fudge and wrapped in that delicious Milk chocolate that we all know better than our Mom’s cooking. The Snickers Fudge Bar is a simple change from the standard Snickers bar, a kind of change that we all thought of, but never dared to whisper out loud, well now you can yell about it, if your mouth isn’t too full.

This is the Snickers bar for the chocolate lover; everything you love about a normal Snickers bar, except the Caramel is replaced with Fudge. This makes the bar more solid in its overall consistency, and you don’t have to deal with that stretchy caramel oozing all over your face. Like in our favorites Snickers, Milky Way, and 3 Musketeers bars, the peanut butter Nougat is fluffy and light and the peanuts are tasty as usual, but the Fudge adds a new dense consistency to the center layer, which makes for a “chocolate punch to your dome” effect for the overall bar.

Usual of their limited edition bars, the bar is smaller than a standard Snickers bar, the smallest yet, to be exact at 1.78 ounces. But at 250 calories it doesn’t need to be bigger, and trust me, if you’re wondering whether it will satisfy your Snickers craving, after you bite into this chocolate juggernaut you’ll be singing Benny Benassi’s “Satisfaction” in no time.

Almond Joy Bars

Coconut, almonds and milk chocolate; that just might be the best chocolate combination ever. Hershey’s took that idea and created the Almond Joy in 1946 and it is a wonderful creation. Although it was Peter Paul who originally made Almond Joy, they merged with Hershey’s and the ideas kept coming. But the Almond Joy, although it was not the original, will always be the best for me. It just takes me away from all my troubles and kind of loosens me up. I think the best way to eat an Almond Joy is to cherish every detail. First I like to eat the almond, and then just let the coconut and chocolate blend together and lastly let it melt away. That way I get to enjoy every precious property of the candy bar.

Another great aspect of Almond Joy is the fact that they come with two large individual candies that have two separate almonds in them. I love that because I can buy one and split it between me and my sister easily.  We both get a large, satisfying candy, without having to buy two. Of course we usually end up going back and getting another one! Almond
Joys are really a joy to eat.
