I ran into these at a local store while grocery shopping last week. The combination of the words “limited edition” and the price of 5 for $2 was far too tempting to resist. They were announced last June, and they also come in a Dark with Almond variety, but I haven’t found any of them yet.
I figured the taste wouldn’t be that different from a regular Snickers. I’ve had dark chocolate many times, and while it’s not my favorite, I can eat it no problem. The Snickers Dark however is so chocolatey. It tastes like the entire bar is full of chocolate, instead of just being coated in it. It was actually pretty good, and I’m sure dark chooclate fans will be super excited that they’re being catered to, but the chocolate was overpowering to the other flavors in the bar. That’s how dark chocolate tends to taste, at least for me, that sort of bitter aftertaste sticking around and covering up the caramel, nuts and nougat.
I still prefer the traditional Snickers, but dark chocolate fans will probably disagree.
