Peanut Butter Special K Bar
This bar, referred to only as "Bar" upon purchase, is available at Butter, a coffee shop on South Grand Ave in Minneapolis. On the weekends they have brunch which is pretty decent. Out-of-town guests get taken here often. But on to the bar...
This snack is based on the classic Rice Krispie Treat... breakfast cereal, in this case it's Special K, mixed up with melted marshmallows, butter, and, in this case some peanut butter, and covered with a layer of chocolate. It's much more engaging than a Rice Krispie treat and altogether more satisfying. I've purchased several of these and they're usually perfect, but the one I picked up this morning was a little chewy... I'd say even painfully chewy... like don't eat it with fake teeth chewy. I'll chalk it up as an isolated incident. Maybe I got the last bar from the old batch. Maybe you could even call ahead to make sure a fresh bar would be available.
And now here's the part where I rate the snack, on a scale from 1 to 10:
Packaging (1) (Just some stupid cling wrap. Not even a sticker? C'mon dudes)
Overall snackability rating (7)
