Another thread in MPSIMS tangentially referenced these. I had never heard of them or at least never noticed them (I’m in Maryland - not sure of their distribution) which is odd because I do like both Reeses and nuts.
Reese’s NutRageous (it has it’s own wiki!)
Have you tried one? What did you think?
NutRageous is a chocolate bar made by the The Hershey Company. It consists of Reese’s Peanut Butter topped with roasted peanuts and caramel enrobed in chocolate-flavored coating. Developed as a candy bar loosely based on the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, NutRageous was first sold in 1994. NutRageous was originally called Acclaim, but this name was changed just prior to its release due to focus groups (mainly of children) responding more to the “NutRageous” branding. In 2014, “Nutrageous” was rebranded as “Nut Bar” internationally and the weight of the bar was reduced from 51 g to 47 g.
A unique point of the Nutrageous name was suggested in its advertising. It was implied that the Nutrageous bar was named such because it tasted so good, they needed to come up with a new adjective to explain how good it was.
Yes I have. Been a long time and I don’t remember loving or hating it.
and I love Reeses Peanut Butter Cups.
Many times! They’re one of my favorites.
Nope. Never heard of them, but I’m not a candy person.
Yes. It’s one of my preferred candy bars, although I don’t eat a lot of candy bars.
I’ve never had one but I must say that is one devilishly funny play on words there, intead of
, they’re saying outrageous ! Get it! Ehh? That’s outrageously nutty. Cle-ver. Im getting one. nutrageous
I’m sure I have, but it wasn’t something I’ve had frequently enough nor recently enough to have an opinion about.
I’ve seen them around for a long time and have probably had a couple. I find them to be too overly sweet.
Tells you all you need to know.
And I’m nutraged!
Ahh! I see what you did there!
I like them, if I’m going to eat an actual candy bar.
But if given a choice between that and a peanut butter cup, I’ll stick with the cup.
Eaten many, over at least a decade. But I’m a sophisticate.
I eat them. I like them. But a lot of stores here (in Michigan) don’t carry them.
Yep. I remember when they first came out. I seem to have an affinity for new candy when it first comes out. I’m sure I’ve had it since, as well, but I am more of a Snickers or Twix girl.
I tried them in Maryland in the 90s. Don’t think I cared for it too much.
Nope! (This looked like a poll. But it is not a poll.)
It’s a little too actual nuts for me. I like my nuts minced or in pasty form, so I would go for a Fastbreak or Snickers Peanut Butter Squared before I would go for a Nutrageous.
