Taste test: These small candies had a weird look, with flat bottoms, lumpy shapes and a color similar to peanut butter. I like maple syrup and peanuts —separately, never tried them together — so there seemed like potential for something good here.
When I tried them, however, there was not something good. The initial bite was not so bad, with a sweet taste and a firm but chewable feel. But after that, I didn't like the taste at all — there was something weird in there that I just didn't like. Since the label said "Real Maple Coating," I'm figuring that was the first taste, the not-bad one. I know what peanuts taste like, so I doubt that was the problem. The third thing mentioned on the label was "Crunchy Toffee" which is also something I like, but I'm guessing that was the culprit. Or at least my best guess. Ick.
