Jer's Brittle Bites

I’ve had some good peanut brittle in my time with Candy Addict, but I’ve never seen these nifty flavor twists: Coco Nutty and Yippee Cayenne. I wonder how they’ll work with the brittle.

Jer’s Handmade Chocolates is a relatively new company in San Diego. I was not happy with their Toffee Break Gourmet Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars, but I’m still ready to like these Brittle Bites – especially given the quality ingredients.

Let’s try the Coco Nutty bites first. These come in a small 1.6 oz box, with four individual, small bite-sized pieces. I pop one in my mouth. The coconut flavor hits first, and strongly. Then the crispy brittle, which is hard to discern because of the strong coconut flakes. Lastly I notice the dark chocolate, quite far in the flavor background. I can see how some people would like these, but to me the coconut flavor’s too strong, masking the brittle and chocolate elements. Oh, and these are peanut brittle, but I couldn’t even taste the peanuts. Let’s try the Yippee Cayenne.

Hey! These are tasty! Unlike the Coco Nutty, I can instantly tell that I’m eating peanut brittle. And these are wrapped in milk chocolate, not dark chocolate as before. And here, the cayenne flavor doesn’t overpower the rest of the ingredients. Instead, it offers a subtle but distinctive kick to the brittle and chocolate. I was skeptical of these Yippee Cayenne Peanut Brittle Bites, but I’m a convert. You can taste the quality of these ingredients, and in contrast to the two other Jer’s candies I’ve tried, this candy really gets the taste combination right. Nice job, Jer. (Don’t be frightened off by the cayenne component; if you didn’t tell your average candy lovers that pepper made the ingredient list, they’d wonder what made these candies taste so good.)

To sum up my Jer’s Handmade Chocolate experience, I was no fan of the Toffee Break Gourmet Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars or of the Coco Nutty Peanut Brittle Bites, but I heartily endorse the Yippee Cayenne Peanut Brittle Bites. They are unique, and very tasty. For the brittle fan who’s tried it all, give these a try.
