Taste test: This jar was shaped roughly like a peanut butter jar and said "Skippy" on it, but it wasn't a jar of peanut butter. Instead, it had not-particularly-spherical balls, averaging a half-in in diameter, that had a peanut butter color on the outside and promised a "peanut butter flavored center with peanut butter coating."
I didn't really know what that meant, so I just opened it up, grabbed one and bit in to find out. There seemed to be three things going on: the outer PB coating, a thin layer in between that looked like it was maybe chocolate, and a soft core also made from peanut butter, with a similar texture but a slightly darker color. I thought at first that maybe the center was sweeter than the outside, but when I sucked away the outside on one, it seemed just the opposite, maybe less sweet. Anyway, the feel was soft throughout, and the taste and texture were quite good.
