Wow. I just realized something.
The Impulsive Buy rarely ever reviews candy bars. Take a look at the archives. We’ve only reviewed the M-Azing candy bar.
Although, if you could see my ass, you would think I’ve reviewed a whole lot more.
To those of you who actually looked at the archives, you might have noticed the EcoBar we reviewed in September. All I have to say about that is, anything with the word “Eco” in it will never be considered a candy bar.
The other week, we were told about a new candy called Take 5 from Hershey’s. It contained the combination of pretzels, caramel, peanuts, peanut butter, and milk chocolate (Get it, five ingredients. Take 5.)
At first we didn’t believe it because we thought it was impossible to fit all of that into a candy bar. But then we thought if Star Jones could fit in her wedding dress, anything was possible.
I went to the convenience store down the street to see if they had Take 5 in stock. Fortunately, they did and they were 2 for $1.
(Get ready for the REALLY lame pun.)
The Take 5 were so cheap that I took four.
(Yeah, worse pun EVER!)
After opening the wrapper, I saw two chocolate-covered pieces about the same size as a pretzel. I took a bite out of one of the pieces and thought it was pretty good. All of the ingredients created a nice mixture of sweet and salty. They were so good, that if I ever wanted to turn into Star Jones, I would do it by eating a whole bunch of these.
Despite them being really good, there’s one thing that bothers me about the Take 5 and I’m going to direct my attention towards the last Take 5 I have.
Wassup, Take 5! Why you gotta be a hater for?
Where the hell is the nouGAT at?
Nougat is good enough for a 3 Musketeers, but it isn’t good enough for a Take 5?
I’m sorry almighty bar of milk chocolate, pretzels, caramel, peanuts, and peanut butter, you’re too good for nougat.
Also, why aren’t you showing any love for almonds, rice crisps, white chocolate, granola, and coconut?
Oh wait, screw coconut. I hate coconut.
Come on you’ve got peanut butter AND peanuts. Don’t you think that’s a little overkill?
Why can’t you have nougat and/or rice crisps and be called Take 6 or Take 7, huh?
