Welcome to Day #7 of Chocolate and N,O,P,Q Theme Week, featuring chocolate items with flavors and origins that begin with the letters N, O, P and/or Q--including today's classic combination of chocolate and peanuts.
Today's SkinnyDipped Milk Chocolate Peanuts were distributed by Wild Things Snacks, Inc (Seattle, WA).
The aroma of this snack was similar to a Nestle Butterfinger bar. It was a healthier version perhaps, but the smell summoned memories of addictively sweet and salty childhood chocolate and peanut confections nonetheless. This offering had "no shiny glaze or wax" and "no artificial colors or flavors," and came in a sealed, and resealable, package.
Instead of a more processed, layered, crispy peanut center you may find in a candy bar, the peanut pieces at the heart of these treats were jumbo-sized (premium Virginia) peanuts--wholes and halves--dipped in a light coating of darker milk chocolate, sweetened with sugar and maple syrup, with a pinch of sea salt.
These were a bit too sweet and salty for me, but there was more authentic peanut and chocolate flavors poking through (that were nice!), and these chocolate dipped peanuts were not quite as sugar-drenched as many similar alternatives.
Ingredients: Peanuts, milk chocolate (sugar, cocoa butter, whole milk, unsweetened chocolate, soy lecithin, vanilla), organic maple sugar, cocoa powder, soybean oil, sea salt.
