Chocolate Covered Peeps

Alright, time for some honesty here. Are you ready?

This is not a Peep. It's not even close to a Peep.
First off, it's not the same shape as the original chicks. It's a flattened out version. Second, gone is the crispy sugar that gives the peep interest. Gone!
And finally, the inside of a normal Peep is white. Like a real marshmallow. The inside of the chocolate covered version: a mucus yellow.

That said, it tasted pretty good. Honestly, it's just a chocolate covered marshmallow. It's not like it could have been nasty. But I certainly wouldn't call it a chocolate covered Peep.

Even on a good day.

3 Musketeers Truffle Crisp

3 Musketeers Truffle Crisp Bars - 1.1 Oz, 24 PackIs there a crisp revolution? The 3 Musketeers Truffle Crisp is possibly an improvement on the original. The crisp is light and soft and the chocolate truffle covering it is positively delicious. The whole bar is still bathed in the same delightful milk chocolate as the classic. However, I think the Truffle Crisp is an improvement on the original.

Now don't get me wrong. I love a 3 Musketeers as much as the next guy. Especially when I want chocolate on chocolate. However, the chocolate truffle is out of this world. It hits your tongue with a chocolicious explosion of happiness. The crisp offers up a pleasing crunch but is still soft and blends nicely into the taste. Sold as two Twix-style bars per package, you can relive the indulgence or share with a friend.

I would highly recommend trying this candy. It is an excellent innovation on the original and is sure to please any chocolate lover's craving.

Baby Ruth Crisp

Baby Ruth Crisp Single Bar, 1.76-Ounce Units (Pack of 24)If you love Baby Ruths but hate all those peanuts, this is the candy for you. The taste is exactly the same as a classic Baby Ruth but the texture is completely different. Gone are the peanuts glued together by caramel. Instead, you're created by a crispy wafer and caramel stacked on top of each other like a Kit-Kat.

The first bite sensation is strange. The taste is spot-on, as you would expect, but the texture is Baby Ruth gone Kit-Kat. Soft wafers stacked together with caramel and creme. It's very light and airy. However, despite the claim of peanuts on the package I did not taste any in the candy. Seeing as how the classic BR is comprised mostly of peanuts. It seems like an odd choice to do away with them completely in the Crisp version of the candy.

Despite the peanut mystery, I would still highly recommend the Baby Ruth Crisp to any BR lovers and especially those who love the taste but dislike the peanuts.
