It wasn’t a good idea, nor did I think it was a good idea, but I grabbed one of the new Limited Edition Rockin Nut Road Snickers that I recently saw popping up at the local Walgreens (on sale 2 for a $1 this week!). Why wasn’t it a good idea? Because nothing, NOTHING, should be artificially flavored to taste like marshmallow. If you want something to taste like marshmallow, use some effin’ marshmallow. Nougat that’s been changed by some blood pact with Satan to taste only vaguely like marshmallow is a sin against nature.
Needless to say I wasn’t a huge fan of this candy bar. The nougat was at times too chewy for its own good, the bar I bought barely had any caramel in it, and the normal peanuts of the Snickers shouldn’t have been replaced by the almonds, because they only added a third layer of touch-to-chew satisfaction to the equation.
Also? 20 minutes after eating it, not only did my breath still remind me what I just ate, but my stomach was also less than pleased with its contents. Maybe if you’re REALLY into rocky road, this is a candy bar for you, but I’ll stick to the regular nougaty, caramelly goodness of the original Snickers, because in this case, they really do satisfy more than the new Limited Edition flavors.
I liked the Rockin’ Nut Road Snickers. I’m thinking of buying a box of them, as I can’t find them for sale in my area. I didn’t think it tasted anything like smores, which I can’t stand anyway. It tasted a lot like a Look bar, with almonds and caramel. I’m not a candy critic by any means, I just liked it.
