The new Snickers Shakers Seasoning Blend has taught me that my eating habits are quite dull outside of what I taste for the site. Because after trying the sweet seasoning on a variety of foods, I later realized those foods also ended up being what I shook the Twix Shakers Seasoning Blend on when I reviewed it —- overnight oats, vanilla ice cream, popcorn, smoothies, etc.
I hate to say this, especially because the fine folks at B&G Foods sent me a bottle of its Snickers Shakers Seasoning Blend, but my diet of the same foods over and over again made me realize that the two sweet seasonings could easily be confused for each other.
Let’s break it down. As we ALL know, Snickers is made with peanuts, caramel, and nougat in milk chocolate and is a vastly superior candy bar to Milky Way (Nah, just messin’ with you, Milky Way-ers). But after trying it with all the things I tried it with, my taste buds could only notice the chocolate and caramel, which was also the case with the Twix version. And much like the Twix Shakers, it has a weird flavor that’s nothing like the iconic candy bar when tasted on its own.
I can understand the lack of nougat flavor because, let’s face it, it might be the fourth most crucial component in a Snickers. But I’m surprised the peanuts aren’t noticeable even though it’s listed high up in the ingredients list.
Also, much like the Twix version, while the serving size is a teaspoon, I had to add a lot more to my popcorn and Cheerios to get a noticeable flavor. So I recommend, if possible, getting the 9.5-ounce bottle currently available at Sam’s Club instead of the 6.8-ounce one at Walmart.
As you can probably tell, I’m a bit disillusioned with this Snickers Shakers Seasoning Blend, although I did enjoy it with vanilla ice cream. If I could’ve tasted the peanuts, I probably would’ve liked it more. But with mostly chocolate and caramel flavors, it bothers me that it doesn’t differ much from the previous Twix version.

Try adding some powdered peanut butter to it.
the apparent texture doesn’t seem to lend itself well as a topping. i’d just mix it in to a milkshake (and sprinkle some crushed peanuts on top to make up for that lack of flavor).
I have died and gone to heaven ?
I saw it at Sam’s Club and didn’t buy it. Wanted to know more.
From this review, it sounds like it could be good in real whipped cream – you could sprinkle chopped peanuts on top, or as another comment suggested, perhaps whip the cream with a little peanut butter.
I can’t see much other use beyond hot chocolate, but you could accomplish that by just melting a Snickers bar in the milk.
I think I’ll pass on the Snickers Shakers.
