Taste test: From the illustration on the packaging, I was expecting this candy bar to have an unusual round profile. However, when I peeled open the wrapper, I was disappointed to find that the actual bar was flat on the bottom, so the shape was fairly ordinary.

I crunched in to find a fairly light feel, with different levels of crunch in various layers, but it was hard to tell from the exposed profile of the bar what was what. Based on a mix of what I felt upon biting in and picture on the box, I believe the bar consisted of a white-colored center, which seemed have a light and crispy feel, surrounded by some layers of something crunchy, with a remotely Butterfinger-like feel, except lighter, then some crushed peanuts outside those layers, and finally a chocolate coating on the exterior.

It was a bit messy to eat, with chunks of chocolate and other elements flying off the bar as I bit in. There was an unusual but nice crispy feel, and the mix of elements tasted pretty good.
