Nestle Butterfinger Snackerz Review and Giveaway

Snackerz singleIt’s no secret that I love candy.  Specifically, I love nearly anything with chocolate in it.  So, when I spotted the Butterfinger booth at BlogHer, I was intrigued.  They were handing out samples of their newest product: Butterfinger Snackerz.  Of course, I had to try them.  To quote those Bart Simpson commercials, they were crispedy, crunchedy and peanut buttery.  (All great things in a candy.)  We brought a couple of packages back from BlogHer for the boys.  Of course, they both loved them.  (The only thing they didn’t like about them was that we didn’t have more!)

A nice thing about the Snackerz, versus a full-sized candy bar, was that we could pick up the smaller, bite-sized pieces instead of holding onto a full-sized bar.  It also meant that one package could be divided up more evenly between two boys.  No fighting over “his half is bigger!”

These will definitely be among our top candy choices when we go shopping for a sweet treat for the boys (or ourselves).
