Justin's Organic candy bars! It was sometime last year when I found the chocolate-coated peanut butter cups and I was instantly addicted. Some weeks I'd have the milk chocolate variety and other weeks I'd have the dark chocolate ones. Even months later, I can't decide which I like more. At about $2.00 a package at my local health food store, I think they're a great treat.
When I stopped to buy a package today, the young lady who usually rings up my purchase was excited to tell me that Justin's had released a new product. Comparing it to another favorite candy bar from my childhood, I bought it too. Rushing home to have lunch, I couldn't decide which one I would have first, but I took her advice and had the crunchy peanut butter bar.
Whereas the peanut butter cups are so much more incredibly delicious than the original cups that inspired them, I found the peanut butter bar to be quite different from its predecessor. The nuts are more chopped and the nougat is more dense, less soft. At first I didn't like the bar, but after three bites now I recognize that the balance of the ingredients is quite nice and rather original. It's not the candy bar of my youth, it's something different and better. I do recommend.
And I'm looking forward to tomorrow or the next day when I open the other package of sweets. Happy day!
Good thing I'm starting to swim again (in advance of some exciting work coming soon).
