Man oh man, do I miss Snickers. When I worked in an office, I used to eat one (and only one) each day. Yum. Now that there’s going to be a Snickers bar infused with caffeine, taurine, and B vitamins, I’m going to have to seriously reconsider starting up my Costco membership again.
So how does it taste? Let’s check in with Candy Blog.
It smells much like the regular Snickers, has the same texture … same crunchy peanuts, chewy caramel and super-sweet nougat with a hit of salt. And then it comes along, the caffeine kick. And when I say kick, I mean in the mouth. It’s a bitter aftertaste that sits high and in the back of the mouth. It just kind of lingers there, like maybe it’s not something you ate but something you smelled (sometimes strong skunk will do that to me). And it stays with you, probably as long as the caffeine is in your system. I clocked my aftertaste for eating one half of a bar at 90 minutes.
I’m willing to put up with the strong-skunk aftertaste but I’m somewhat of a buzz junkie. You’ll probably have a hard time trying to get “regular” people to eat these but, at the same price as a regular Snickers bar, you won’t be out too much if your grandma doesn’t like the taste.
I’m not sure if these are available yet, as Candy Blog got some samples directly from Mars, Inc. but I’ll be checking my local convenience and grocery stores like a hawk.
