Candy Friday: Jo’s Peanut Butter Crunch

Last night at the Whole Foods Market in Providence I spotted a display of cutely packaged Jo’s  Peanut Butter Crunch candies at the register. In my bag the twosome went along with my sushi dinner and Eden Soy soy milk.

The chocolate treat was my mid-morning snack. I’ve heard good things about Jo’s candy but found the overall flavor of the peanut butter lacking. The chocolate quality was good, smooth and melty, but again, was a weak tasting milk chocolate. Overall it was ok, but really lacked much flavor.

    How does it compare to some of the more widely known peanut butter type of candies like Reese’s Pieces and peanut butter cups?

    There’s very little peanut flavor. The filling is creamy with some crunchy bits and the overall candy (filling + chocolate) is much less chalky than Reese’s Peanut Butter cup, so there’s great mouth feel. But again I’m left with very little flavor.
