American Chocolate Showcase #6 – Butterfinger Crisp

14 Aug

 

While Nestle Butterfinger has long since been one of America’s most cherished chocolate bars, in recent times another product from the same family has started to take away some of the limelight from it.

Launched in 2004 Butterfinger Crisp consists of a delicious mix of light and crispy wafers, Butterfinger candy creme and crunchy candy bits covered with thick milk chocolate. Each bar weighs approximately 40 grams and is packaged in a distinctive yellow and white wrapper. There are 24 individual bars in a box.

Only available in Australia from specialist stores like Moo-Lolly-Bar, Butterfinger Crisp offers a taste sensation that mixes the delicious flaky feel of the original with the satisfying crunch of several layers of wafer. The popular confectionery blog Candy Addict has described the product as the ‘love child of a giant Kit Kat and a classic Butterfinger, only way better’. A description we feel is pretty apt.

American Chocolate Showcase #4 – Butterfinger

Buy Butterfinger in bulk online at Moo-Lolly-Bar Australia

One of America’s most popular confections, Butterfinger is a much loved bar of candy which comprises of a flaky, orange coloured compound centre that is not too dissimilar in texture, flavour and taste to what Australian’s know as chocolate covered peanut brittle.

Invented by one Drew Seibold of Florence, Wisconsin and initially manufactured by the Curtiss Candy Company in 1923 who also made Baby Ruth chocolate bars, Butterfinger is is now produced by Nestlé.

A unique chocolate bar, in that there isn’t really anything else like it on the market, Butterfinger’s are cherished both for their peanut butter taste and also the crumbly sensation that explodes on to your tongue when you bite into one.

Famously promoted by Bart Simpson and other characters from The Simpsons, who collectively appeared in more than 150 advertisements for the product between 1990 and 2001, each advert finished with Bart yelling the infamous straplines of ‘Bite my Butterfinger!’, ‘Nobody better lay a finger on my Butterfinger!’ and ‘Nothin’ like a Butterfinger’. In an especially clever piece of marketing most of these commercials were released on The Simpsons DVD sets as bonus features along with other commercials.

Only available in Australia from specialist stores like Moo-Lolly-Bar, Butterfinger also has a sister product, Butterfinger Crisp bars, which take the form of a chocolate-covered wafer cookie, filled with a Butterfinger flavoured cream and covered in chocolate, which many people actually believe tastes better than the original.

American Chocolate Showcase #2 – Baby Ruth

Buy Bulk Baby Ruth Chocolate Bars Online at Moo-Lolly-Bar Australia

It is a commonly held belief that Baby Ruth candy bars were named after the famous baseball slugger babe Ruth. Yet according to the manufacturer this is not true. They were, they maintain, named in honour of Ruth Cleveland, the daughter of the then US President Grover Cleveland. Though some cynics believe this was just a ruse to avoid paying Babe Ruth any royalties.

If I was to be named after a chocolate bar then I would be happy for it to be something like a Baby Ruth. Launched in 1921 by the Curtiss Candy Company who refashioned its old ‘Kandy Kake’ product to make it, Baby Ruth is a hearty mix of peanuts, caramel and chocolate flavoured nougat all covered in delicious milk chocolate. Similar in look and texture to a Picnic, it is the kind of chocolate bar that gives your mouth a real work out.  Quite chewy, but full of flavour, it certain can be considered a satisfying treat.

Famously featured in the films Caddyshack and The Goonies, where Sloth was their self-confessed number one fan, Baby Ruth are available online in Australia from specialist online retailers like Moo-Lolly-Bar. Manufactured now by Nestle they weigh a hefty 59 grams per bar they are sold as a bulk box of 36. To find out more about the product or to buy Baby Ruth bars online please click here.
