Bumblebee Snickers

I was chatting with Crown Combo’s Mystie the other day.  She mentioned Transformer’s M & Ms and a further quest to locate Bumblebee Snickers.   Last night as I was purchasing a bottle of 7up at the gas station, I found the candy at the impulse item spot next to the register.  Immediately I though of Mystie, and bought a couple.

Here’s the concoction.  Snickers is not my favorite treat.  Speaking of treats, I remember when I was a kid Sunday was “treat day.”  I took treat day very seriously.  When church was over, we went to the local convenience store and got to choose one candy.  I believe I almost always chose M & M’s or Lik-a-Maid Fun Dip.  Moving on.  If Snickers did not include marketing for the new Transformer’s movie, I would probably not buy it.  The advertising geniuses did their job here.

The wrapper promises nothing more than yellow nougat.  I like nougat, it’s a good time.  I don’t like Snickers nougat.  If there was a candy bar with 3 Musketeers Nougat and the caramel and peanuts covered in chocolate that Snickers offers, I might get fat.  Snickers currently, won’t do it.

See that card?  It’s my recently acquired movie rental card here in Fancy New Town.  I put it next to the bar to show how small it is.  Are all Snickers Bars now this teeny?  I was going to use a dollar bill, but I couldn’t get it to lie flat, and was not about to drag out the clothes iron for this mission.

I wouldn’t really call this yellow.  Goldenrod?  It’s definitely one of those Crayola colors in the box of 96 crayons that got no play.

Now, I put this on the floor for pictures.  Therefore, I had to eat the other one to report to you that there is no variation on the taste.  But let’s be honest, had I not decided to write on it and dropped the bar on the floor out of the package I probably would have followed  the ten second rule and finished it off anyhow.

    Ooh. I winced when I saw the yellow. I would have to eat it without looking. That nougat looks like dried out playdoh.

    I gotta go with Amy on this one, the color is rather…off putting (that’s a word right?)
    You’d think with it being a Transformers tie-in they’d have done something a little more drastic than just making the nougat yellow but what do I know?

    Or you know… in the shape of a car?
