Another Choxie truffle bar! (Oh, and there are many more to come..) Today we have the Peanut Butter Pretzel Bar, which is milk chocolate and a peanut butter center with bits of pretzel and roasted peanuts. This came in the Milk Chocolate Lover’s Gift Collection.
The bar smells strongly of peanut butter, and that’s because there is a lot of it. It’s super creamy and smooth – too smooth to be pure peanut butter, in fact. I’m sure it’s mixed with white chocolate, which is listed among the ingredients.
So, the peanut butter is nice, smooth, and sweet. The bar is quite enjoyable. But there is a serious problem: there are no pretzels! I came across only two pieces of pretzel, both too small to add any flavor. There were a few more peanuts, but those were sparse as well.
This is a real shame. The peanut butter is very sweet, being mixed with white chocolate. Salty pretzels would have been the perfect crunchy compliment.
So, this bar was enjoyable but disappointing. Were this called the Peanut Butter Truffle Bar, it would get a 7 or 8. But Pretzel is in the name, so it’s docked to a 6.
