Limited Edition Snickers Xtreme

If peanuts were the measurement of being xtreme, elephants would be doing Mountain Dew commercials and Mr. Peanut wouldn’t be wearing a top hat and holding a cane, instead he would be wearing a helmet, riding a skateboard, and constantly cracking his nuts (or himself) while trying to do railslides down a set of stairs.

The Limited Edition Snickers Xtreme has an xtreme amount of peanuts. As you can see in the picture below, it’s frickin’ full of peanuts. It’s perfect for someone who loves peanuts so much that if it were legal, they would marry them, despite the fact it would be REALLY difficult to consummate the marriage.

To figure out how much more xtreme Snickers Xtreme was than regular Snickers, I decided to dissect each candy bar like it was a frog in a biology class, a cadaver in an anatomy class, or a female contestant on The Bachelor.

However, before I started cutting open each candy bar, I thought just dissecting them wouldn’t be xtreme enough. After all, I was dealing with a Snickers Xtreme. So I decided to try and do an xtreme dissection that involved me blindfolded. underwater without oxygen, surrounded by sharks, and using a live swordfish as my cutting instrument. Unfortunately, the bill of a swordfish doesn’t cut very well, but does stab very well, and I can only hold my breath underwater for ten seconds, so I had to settle for a regular dissection.

As you can see in the picture above the inside of a Snickers Xtreme is nothing but an xtreme amount of peanuts and caramel. In order to make room for the xtreme amount of peanuts, the Snickers Xtreme no get nougat, which a regular Snickers has.

Get it? Nougat! No get! Hahahaha! Oh, I think I just caused each my former creative writing professors to die a little inside.

Despite the xtreme amount of peanuts, I thought the Snickers Xtreme didn’t have a strong peanut taste due to it being kind of drowned out by the xtreme amount caramel. Regular Snickers has peanut butter nougat, which probably would’ve helped with the peanut flavor, but it would probably be hard to try and stuff some in the Snickers Xtreme, since doing that is much like trying to put a hat on Donald Trump’s head, because his head is the size of a blimp and his toupee uses its strand to keep hats away.

There really isn’t anything else xtreme about the Snickers Xtreme itself. Its nutritional value is almost the same as a regular Snickers. A regular Snickers has 280 calories, 14 grams of fat, 5 grams of saturated fat, 5 mg of cholesterol, 140 mg of sodium, 35 grams of carbs, 1 grams of fiber, 30 grams of sugar, and 4 grams of protein. A Snickers Xtreme has 290 calories, 16 grams of fat, 6 grams of saturated fat, 10 mg of cholesterol, 110 mg of sodium, 33 grams of carbs, 2 grams of fiber, 27 grams of sugar, and 5 grams of protein.

However, after eating a Snickers Xtreme my life became a little more xtreme. You would think the probability of my life getting more xtreme because of the Snickers Xtreme is about the same probability of having a good time with someone whose number you found in a public restroom, but for a short time the most mundane parts of my life became xtreme.

For example, eating ice cream. After eating the Snickers Xtreme, I wasn’t chowing down on my favorite dairy product with a spoon, instead I took it to the xtreme by eating it with a ladle. My ironing was even taken to the xtreme. I didn’t just iron on my ironing board, I ironed on top of my ironing board, riding it like a surfboard with me ironing my clothes while wearing them.

Now that’s xtreme!

Pros: Good. More peanuts, if you LOVE peanuts and want to be together through sickness and in health.. Kinda crunchy. Temporarily made mundane parts of my life xtreme. Eating ice cream with a ladle. Xtreme ironing.
Cons: More peanuts, if you’re allergic to peanuts. Despite an xtreme amount of peanuts, it didn’t have a strong peanut taste. No get nougat. Not really more xtreme than regular Snickers. Not being able to do an xtreme dissection. Xcessive use of the word “xtreme” in this review. Donald Trump’s toupee.

    This is hilarious, Marvo. Although the dissected Snickers looks kinda gross. It looks like a clogged artery.

    But you riding that ironing board is priceless. Xtremely cool.

  2. Stacie says:

    You are lucky that ironing board didn’t break! They are made so cheaply these days. You could have had some really Xtreme injuries.
    Maybe next time you could boil the candy bars to get all the goo to melt, and then you could count all of the loose peanuts to compare the two bars.

  3. JJ says:

    Good god man! Did you use a band saw to cut through that plethora of peanuts? I couldn’t help but keep thinking back on Harold and Kummar Go To WhiteCastle when I was reading that post though. XTREEEEEEEEEEM IRONING!

  4. Domokun says:

    Lemme know when you vacuum with the lights turned off. Talk about Xtreme! I have to take note that your cross-sections were clearly performed with the utmost care and precision. You should win an xtreme award for that, too.

  5. calvin says:

    Stacie – I don’t know if that would really work. I think it would end up just making a mess. How would Marvo separate the melted chocolate/caramel from the water and peanuts? I think this would be challenging indeed.

    JJ – hahahahahaha, dude, I didn’t even think of that part of Harold And Kumar, but that would really be a funny scene for the bonus dvd or something. Of course they would have to use an ironing board made in China so that it breaks when those assholes(haha) stand on it.

  6. calvin says:

    EVERYONE! I have just made an important discovery!!!!!!!!!

    Notice the picture. Now, try to think about how Marvo took it. Well, it seems pretty impossible to set a 10 second autotimer and then run all the way over there and pose. He could have set a custom autotimer, but something tell me that he didn’t. Do you know what this means? There was someone else in the house! Which means that Marvo probably got himself some sweet lovin!

    I think that deserves a standing ovation, good job.

    Unless it was your buddy, coworker, or room mate, in which case we, the readers of TIB take our standing ovation back.

  7. Wednesday says:

    I thought all men ironed that way….it usually looks like it.

  8. luckinflux says:

    Maybe it’s just me, I dunno. I thought the era of xtreme (food in this case) products was a bit overdone and done. I was holding out for the xtreme super absorbent tampon from o.b. just to see if it would dehydrate my girlfriend from the inside out. Alas I just settled for the Denny’s Extreme Grand Slam. Who wouldn’t be happy with an extra piece of sausage and bacon in the morning? I guess what I’m getting at is how xtreme can it be if it the word is marked to old people at crappy chain restaurant?

  9. Chuck says:

    Calvin – Marvo does have a roomate. Most likely he got him to take the picture. Although if he got himself some sweet sweet lovin’, Go Marvo!

  10. Brie says:

    “Xtreme tampon!” LOL, luckinflux!

  11. LaR says:

    no get nougat…
    i thought you were busting out your pidgin

    that’s some xtreme balancing

  12. Gia in the City by the Bay says:

    I totally disagree with not being able to consumate a marriage with a peanut. You GUYS are always thinking of ways to put your dumbstick into things…but if you took a second to imagine that perhaps the peanut lover were a woman, easily consumated…heck that’s a peanut orgy! But unsalted please.

  13. Marvo says:

    calvin – The ironing board picture was fun, but too bad it was Photoshop job and I destroyed my ironing board while trying to figure out how to do the picture.

    L’il E – Just to let you know, I Photoshopped that photo together because I didn’t know I couldn’t surf ironing boards.

    Melanie – One try and I got it. I should be a brain surgeon!

    tg – My ironing board can’t support a person and I had to buy a new one because it couldn’t.

    Chuck – It kind of surprised me too, but life is full of surprises.

    Lord Jezo – No, my xtreme ass broke my ironing board. That picture is a Photoshop job I did.

    Barb – Just you wait and see, they’re going to come out with an Xtreme Hershey’s with Almonds.

    Toni – How about honey roasted peanuts in your candy?

    Mandy – Nah, they’re more xtreme than me. They’re ironing without electricity.

    stuporstar – thanks!

    jinhamasaki – Or I am light as a feather. Or I know my way around Photoshop.

    Sep – Because it’s xtreme to knock out slightly silent letters.

    twisted dog – Sorry, I ate them both.

    Own the Interet – To be more exact Xtreme Type 2 Diabetes.

    cybele – If not flossing is xtreme, then I am xtreme four days out of the week.

    Aarika – I like Triple Dipple Twixxle.

    Webmiztris – xtremely right!

    The Lazy Canadian – Sadly, I don’t know how to surf on water.

    Zadillo – Doesn’t Baby Ruth have nougat? Also, my poop doesn’t look like a Baby Ruth.

    Brie – I believe after eating both candy bars, that’s what my arteries look like.

    Stacie – It did break. Actually it twisted and bent, which forced me to buy a Martha Stewart ironing board from Kmart, which i will not be trying to surf on.

    JJ – I wish I had a band saw, because I would make it so much easier when I get stuck in handcuffs and I don’t know where I put the key.

    Domokun – I could use my cutting skills for good, like brain surgery, but instead I use it on trivial things like cutting up candy bars.

    calvin – Actually, the clean up would be the challenging thing.

    calvin – If I were getting sweet, sweet lovin’, daily condom reviews would be posted here at TIB.

    Wednesday – I iron used an ironing board and spray bottle, because that’s what Martha taught me.

    luckinflux – I’m also surprised that there hasn’t been a Playtex Xtreme for those heavy flow days.

    Chuck – I took the picture. Actually, I first took a picture of the ironing board. Then I tried to see if the ironing board could hold my weight, which is couldn’t. With my ironing board destroyed, I used a table to raise me up to the height the ironing board was set to and took a picture of me ironing on that. Then I just combined the two photos Photoshop. No sweet, sweet lovin’.

    LaR – You do not want me to bust out my pidgin. It is not pretty to listen to.

    Gia in the City by the Bay – My “dumbstick” is not dumb. It knows to stay away from Carmen Electra’s coochie. I don’t know about that peanut orgy thing. Would that be like ben wah balls?

  14. L'il E says:

    Seriously? Great job if you’re not lying to me. But I suspect you are lying to me. Again ;-p

  15. Zadillo says:

    Hrmm, you’re right, Baby Ruth does have nougat. Although according to wikipedia, “the nougat found in it is more like fudge than is found in many other American candy bars.”

  16. Marvo says:

    L’il E – I’m surprised by the result myself. I have no Photoshop skillz. :-(

    Zadillo – I’m disappointed that a Baby Ruth doesn’t have alcohol and cigars like Babe Ruth.
