Route 29 - Peanut Butter Sticks (TK Maxx)


Recently I had a bit of a tip-off that TK Maxx stocked quite a few interesting food products from around the world and that I should take a look. Well obviously I headed on over and this caught my eye. Regular readers will know about my love of peanut butter, so how could I resist this wonderful item when I saw it.
The packaging is a little strange though as it is designed to look a little like a cigarette packet, and it even has a joke warning on the side of the box about the chocolate being habit forming! I’m not sure this is one hundred percent politically correct for a confectionary, but whatever. This product is from the States by the way, the home of the chocolate and peanut butter mix. The nut filling was full of flavour, like a solid peanut butter. The sticks were crunchy but not hard enough to shatter, and the milk chocolate coating was fairly thick. As you can imagine I absolutely loved these, the two flavours work so well together. I do hope that I can find these regularly in TK Maxx, but something tells me their stock might vary week by week.

I haven't seen them in Selfridges, but will take another look. (Any excuse to go back!)

Damn, I was going to try these when I saw them at TK Maxx but I was too late. Haven't seen them since. Still there's always an interesting selection at TK Maxx.
