This is sadly going to be one of those posts that might not translate well around the world. You see, the thing is over here in the UK we call this chocolate bar with nuts “Snickers” (It used to be called a “Marathon” until 1990) so I can only hope that it is mostly known under than name worldwide as I bring you…
Top 10 Weird and Unusual Snickers
10 – Xtreme
Not due for launch until 2015 this is the rather filling looking Xtreme that does away with the layer of nougat and just has tons of caramel and peanuts! This is one that I can’t wait to try that is for certain.
9 – Almond
If you take the peanuts out of a snickers, is it still a snickers? Well with this almond inspired bar we are going to find out. The same Mars owned recipe is followed here, all except the choice of nut. I am not a but fan of almonds at all, so I will be giving this a wide birth.
8 – Cruncher
It has to be said that the cruncher looks very much like the xtreme bar that is yet to come out! Well putting conspiracy theories aside, this is essentially a rebranded of the Snickers Munch breakfast style bar but with a chocolate layer on top.
7 – Hazelnut
The very rare Snickers Hazelnut is only sold in Ukraine, Australia, and Poland and never made it to UK shores. I am sure it tastes great as hazelnuts often have a very strong taste that probably makes for a very good chocolate bar.
6 – Yellow Nougat
Those of you with a sharp eye will instantly see that this is a movie tie-in chocolate bar linked with Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. It is very rare indeed and only a few thousand were ever made. In teams of the bar its self, the only unusual thing was the colour of the nougat, nothing else was changed even the taste.
5 – Fudge
Released in 2009 Snickers Fudge was supposed to be a limited edition, but it was loved in Australia so much that it became part of the normal release. And still till today it is the only country you can get them from. If you see them in other shops they are only imported goods.
4 – Slice ‘N’ Share
It might be made of the same things and have the same taste as an ordinary Snickers bar, but this is far beyond that. This beast of a snack bar is almost a foot long, and weighs 454 grams! It goes without saying that it is officially the World’s biggest officially made Snickers bar
3 – Peanut Butter
I bet I have you attention now don’t I. These were original just called Snickers Peanut Butter, but that was discontinued in 2011 and replaced by Snickers Peanut Butter Squared. I don’t know about anyone else, but that change gets my vote! Those are some tasty looking little squares indeed.
2 – Cruncher
This “Super Charged” snickers bar was a very limited edition indeed. Containing caffeine, taurine, and B vitamins it is the only Snickers bar ever released to contain energy stimulants! Like a true power bar.
1 – Cookies and Snickers
So we arrive at my number 1, and while it might not be that unusual to some people, I have never seen this, heard of it or even seen it on the web before! I can only imagine how it tastes with that biscuit base and the snickers part on top. The only real problems I can see is that stopped making them in 2008 so they might be a bit stale now if any are left, and that there is only 10 in a box.
