Pretzel nugget review part two, electric bugaloo! Muddy buddies have also released a peanut butter and chocolate version along side the cookies and cream. I enjoyed these while playing copious amounts of video games, which I am normally doing when I am sampling snacks for the blog. Word to the wise, keeping your keyboard and mouse clean while enjoying tasty finger coating snacks is really snacking on hard mode. Luckily the powdery fallout on these is pretty minimal, but I would advise that you eat these in a place where you can dust yourself off if you plan to eat more than a couple. I might have consumed the whole bag in two days.
Much like the cookies and cream version of this snack, they use the chocolate and peanut butter as a delivery method for the powdered sugar. I would akin this more to the classic puppy chow (sans the Chex) The flavor of the pretzel and the peanut butter blend together with the chocolate, giving this snack a sweet buttery taste. Much like the cookies and cream counterpart, I really wish that the pretzel interior was a little more salty giving it a nice sweet and salty contrast.
I think that the chocolate flavor is more present in these than the cookies and cream version. Truthfully though, if you had presented both of these to me without telling me that they were different, I would say that the differences between the two are pretty marginal. I wish that the peanut butter flavor was stronger as well as the chocolate. Maybe they could have opted to coat the pretzel in peanut butter and use a sweet chocolate powder on the outside instead of the powdered sugar. Of the two, I prefer these over the cookies and cream version, however I do not think this would be something I would reach for if I was looking to buy a crunchy sweet snack.
