Taste test: These cookies were round and had a hole in the center of each one, with milk chocolate exteriors that included many small bits of crushed peanuts embedded in the surfaces.
I grabbed my first ring and noticed that the chocolate exterior felt a bit melty on the fingertips. When I crunched, I found that there were four things going on with each one: an inner ring of lightly crunchy chocolate cookie, coated in a thin layer of peanut butter, then coated in the previously mentioned chocolate with crushed peanuts. Melty exteriors aside, the texture and taste were quite good. Even with relatively little peanut butter, I could taste a lot of it.
As a follow-up to that melty surface feel, I put the package in the fridge, figuring that it would take care of the issue when I went back to eat more cookies. Oddly, it did not; when I ate some next next day, the feel was exactly the same (except colder).
A note about the packaging: Inside the wrapper was a tray holding three rows of five cookies. There could have been a lot more cookies. There were fairly huge spaces between them, as the slot for each one was quite a bit bigger than it needed to be. It seemed like one of those cases where the size of the package exaggerated the amount of stuff inside, probably intentionally. And even with that extra space, not all of the cookies were in flawless condition. They might have even survived shipment better without so much space to move around.

Smell test: Nice fudge and peanut butter smell.
From the package: “Made with Jif® peanut butter” ... “We don't fudge on our fudge. When fudge is rich and creamy and made with only 100% real cocoa, no matter where it goes, it's wonderfully delicious. So that's exactly what we Elves use. Then we add a little of our magic to bake up oh-so-many delightful and different kinds of fudge cookies”
