I bought Snickers Crisper randomly in the supermarket for review purposes. I wasn’t sure whether it was a special edition for the Easter season but notice its been on the market before, at least as far back as 2015.
The product contains two small bars of candy, look about about 1 inch square, maybe just over. Each of those squares is about 1 or 2 bites then its gone.
I didn’t really care for it that much, maybe its because I’m not a big fan of any chocolate bar with peanuts in it, however here are my observations:
- There is a strong taste of peanut, not peanut butter, but of a nut I could not identify.
- I didn’t taste the chocolate that much, hardly at all.
- Inside it looked like rice krispies, but they were harder.
- The texture is kind of chewy but much lighter than something like nougat.
My skin felt bad after eating one of them, like the bar was zit inducing. I also had a slightly bad stomach too. Time for some Alka Seltzer maybe.
Value for Money
The store where I got this from cost $1.29 each, however, they did have a two for one deal on, I made most of their offer of course. At $1.29 each bar I would say the customer is being ripped off, it is very expensive for what the chocolate bar is.
Chocolate in the US appears to be much more expensive than the UK. A regular Snickers in the UK costs about 60p, about 75 cents, and in the US the cheapest I can find it locally is $1.49.
For the price and quality of product I would rather use that money on a small business chocolatier, Snickers Crisper tasted very mass market produced. My score 2/10. I won’t buy it again and the second bar I will probably give away.
I noticed that Mars are using Tumblr as its platform for Snickers products, that is quite interesting, especially as that CMS can be fairly slow on some older computers.
The last time I had a Snickers was when it was called Marathon bar in the UK. I only had it a couple of times as it really wasn’t my thing. Here is an old advert from for Marathon from the UK:
