I was talking to somebody about this bar and an interesting comment came up: "That's just wrong!" I couldn't figure it out, what's so wrong about peanuts? And the Crunch bar is a classic, nothing "wrong" with it. Then I realized the issue. You see, the Crunch bar is known for its texture (the rice crisps), so basically they're adding more texture on texture. In other words, is it still a Crunch bar even though it has peanuts? I'm about to find out.

The good news is that the peanuts don't overpower the crisps at all. In fact, there aren’t too many peanuts to be found in this bar. I'm not sure if I feel like I'm getting ripped off. I mean it doesn't say with "lots" of peanuts, so I guess I can't complain. I suppose in theory they pulled it off. The bar has nuts, although you can't really taste them that well. In truth, one bite I didn't even get one. But they are there, and the integrity of the bar is still alive and well.

I guess if you like the Crunch bar you'll enjoy this treat, but don't expect much in the peanut department.
