Snickers Mixed Nuts

DSC_9207rbIt’s been a while since Mars has done something new with the Snickers bar. Sure, they miniaturized it, and brought back the Snickers Rockin’ Nut Road Bar, but nothing innovative has come along in a few years.

Mars announced last month that they’re releasing a new limited edition bar in November nationwide. It’s called SNICKERS Mixed Nuts Bar. They bill it as a satisfying mix of peanuts, almonds and hazelnuts combined with SNICKERS┬« Brand caramel and nougat, all coated with creamy milk chocolate.

Mars sent me some samples of their new candy bars, so I thought I’d give a preview. I think it’s an exciting concept to include so many different kinds of nuts in one bar.

This is a strange bar, because of its mixed status there’s not quite enough of any of its elements. It smells a bit like peanuts, but not as peanutty as a regular Snickers. The nougat is salty and the caramel chewy, all the nuts are crunchy ... the almonds are especially bold and I do recall at least two hazelnuts. If I sound disjointed, that’s the bar right there. It’s a stop and a start, I kind of got going with a nice almond and then there were some peanuts. I’m more mellow than Snickers, more bold than Snickers Almond.

In addition to the milk, eggs, soy, hazelnuts, almonds, and peanuts, the bars may also contain traces of other tree nuts. There’s no statement about gluten.

  1. Mars is probably better off sticking to one type of nut per bar.  In addition to Regular Snickers and Snickers Almond I would love to see Topic in the US - although their marketeers may want to call it “Snickers Hazelnut” for brand recognition.

  2. I love snickers almond, my fav candy bar by far. But this seems too confusing, with not enough of anything. I kinda wish it had no peanuts, just other nuts.

  3. I love the mix nut bar! Having a very hard time finding them. I bought one in a Dollar Tree store during Christmas but haven’t seen any in any other store. Where can you find them?

  4. I’m also a big fan of these bars, in my opinion it’s the best Snickers spin-off.

  7. I love it. I found it a Walgreens. Went back for more and worker there told all the workers bought them all. And they haven’t gotten any more. I am still looking for them.

  8. I love it!  Searched all over Wal-Mart and they had none.  I had to settle for the Almond Snicker.
    I tried the mixed nut in a vending machine in Enemies and ate 3 of the.  Yummy, wish I could find them in a store.
