I remember a few different peanut shaped candies
One was large-ish (2-3 in.) sort of marshmallowey and pastel colors, tasted sometimes like bananas
Another, quite different, smaller (apx. 1 1/2 in) hard candy with chocolate and or peanut filling.
Bumping for a new query
I used to love P.B. Crisps. My grandmother used to get them for us kids all the time, and yes there was a chocolate flavor, but I always thought the peanut butter was better. I was unaware they quit making them, but I guess it’s been a few years since I’ve seen P.B. Crisps. They were great.
i remember these.
but wasnt there a chocolate version too or other flavors
Curried Bluebonnet, that sounds exactly right, though the name doesn’t ring a bell. I’m pretty sure they weren’t the "ferrero rocher" though.
CRS syndrome strikes again. 😉
Could the truffle shaped ones be "Bon bon" candy? Walmart used to sell them at Easter, though I didn’t see them last year. Pretty big in size, creamy peanut butter center, wafer coating then dipped in chocolate. Very yummy!
You know, I think last Easter (maybe Easter before last?) we bought something that was similar – not peanut shaped, but kind of classic "truffle shaped" about the size of a very large walnut. They had a fluffy creme center, crispy coating/shell, and were chocolate covered, but I can’t for the life of me remember the name of them. I do remember that they, too, were a "big name" candy and sound like if they’re still in production, you’d like them.
Yummy packing peanuts.
man, why did they stop making those delicious things…
ha! thats it! good work guys! man i miss those things. im in awe. thanks a lot.
They were called PB Crisps…I can only remember that because the song in the commerical must have said it a million times. Glad I could help.
I know what you’re talking about and I remember trying them. The outside wafer was similar to that of Nabisco’s "Nutter Butter Patties," only they were a peanut shaped shell. I recall it having a peanut Creme center. There may have been a peanut butter & chocolate version. I think they were made by Planters. I want to say they were called "P.B." something or other, but am not sure.
I really liked them.
come to think of it, they, in some small way, remind me of the snack "combos" but with a crispy, cookie-like outside and a sweet inside.
