Buddy Bars" is one of those disappointments, Sisters and Brothers. Let me reveal why I was disappointed so you can make your own decisions.
I find these Mrs. Freshley products in both the dollar store and the grocery stores in my area. Considering how Little Debbie products have skyrocketed in price over the past year, we wanted to see if this was a good substitute for my family when they want a sweet but portable snack. Personally, since I'm on this Path now I eat one of these once to try it for all of you, Sisters and Brothers, and let the rest of my family eat the others; in fact, often since these come in two piece packets, I eat only one or part of one. Remember: Moderation and Purposefulness.
When I open up the plastic sheaf, the primary scent is a strong peanut butter one without much chocolate. Peanut butter is the second ingredient while cocoa is the seventh, last on the list of “less than 2%” items that make up this product including wheat and soy if those are allergy concerns for you. The bars feel cool in my fingers and start to melt a bit. Biting in, I find it to be slightly crunchy. I can see four wafers and three peanut butter cream layers. All I honestly taste is the peanut butter, the cocoa is very weak, so weak that even letting it melt in my mouth only intensities the peanut flavor more. If I didn’t know this should taste like chocolate, it would not register at all as such a treat. Therefore, not a great product for The Chocolate Cult.
Sisters and Brothers, may you too take the time to slowly appreciate what the Divine and human ingenuity have offered you in chocolate.
