Welcome to Day #7 of Chocolate and Peanuts Theme Week. 

Today's Tom Bumble Smooth Peanut Butter Flake Candy with Chocolate (small bar) was from Oregon Bark (Portland, OR), and was made with chocolate from Ranger Chocolate (Portland, OR).

This bar had an appealing candy bar aroma (think high-end Butterfinger* bar).

A thin creamy layer of dark chocolate covered a thick, crunchy peanut candy interior that was sweet (almost honey-ed) and fine flaked.

The classic peanut and chocolate flavors were satisfying, and the smooth dark chocolate had a few more subtle flickers of authentic cacao flavor than you'd find in a retail candy bar.

Ingredients: Organic peanuts, organic cane sugar, salt, vanilla, organic bittersweet chocolate (organic cacao beans, organic cane sugar, organic cacao butter, organic vanilla beans). 

Allergen-related information: Contains peanuts. Made on equipment that also processes tree nuts.

*(The) Butterfinger is a popular chocolate-covered peanut butter candy bar in the U.S. It was created by Otto Schnering in the 1920s and was owned by Curtiss Candy Company (1923 - 1964), then became owned by Nabisco. After a few more ownership changes it joined the Nestle portfolio; and in 2018 was bought by Ferraro).
