Almost every weekday afternoon, I hit a wall of sorts. With a commute that can near two hours one way, I have plenty of time to think about the delicious dinner I plan to prepare when I get home. But 90+ minutes of dreaming about my next meal means I get hungry. And I mean hungry. Add in a late train, or some other minor inconvenience, and we’ve entered the hangry stage, which no unsuspecting other commuter (or my poor fiance) is equipped to deal with. I’ve even made myself my own little hashtag for these very moments in life — #crabbyKait.
So to avoid #crabbyKait and all the joys that come with her, it’s nice to have a little something on hand to take the edge off without being so big as to ruin the dinner I am looking forward to a bit too much.
Cue SNICKERS®, and their new products that are perfect for those that need just a little something — SNICKERS® Almond, SNICKERS® Xtreme, and SNICKERS® Peanut Butter Squared. The combo of chocolate and caramel gives me the little sugar rush I need, plus the nuts help keep me full until I get home. Luckily there is a Walgreens on the way to the train station and I can stock up before heading home! All three bars can be found in the candy aisle (along with SNICKERS® original bars.)
SNICKERS® Almond is pretty straightforward– it’s everything in a normal SNICKERS® bar (nougat, caramel and milk chocolate), with almonds subbed in for the peanuts.
SNICKERS® Peanut Butter Squared is made with caramel, nougat, milk chocolate, roasted peanuts and peanut butter squished into two square-shaped nuggets. These are great when you only need a little bite to get you going again — each pack comes with two squares so you can have one piece and save the other (or share with an equally hangry friend).
SNICKERS® Xtreme is made of a single layer of crunchy roasted peanuts and smooth caramel with milk chocolate (there is no nougat in these, so there’s more crunchy goodness in this versus the original SNICKERS® bar.) The Xtreme bar comes in a “2 to Go” format that’s ideal for sharing or eating some now and saving the rest for later.
I’m sure I’m not alone with my Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde reaction when I’m hungry! You can check out some great SNICKERS® recipes and fun stories on the SNICKERS® social hub as well.
