Alien Approved


Butterfinger
Ferrara Candy Company (2019) 
Nestlé sold their American candy division to the Ferrara Candy Company at around this time last year.  Since that time, they have completely reformulated the Butterfinger recipe.  To promote these new bars, they've created this awesome creepy alien that reminds me a bit of the old Reese's Pieces "Cousin Willie" commercials.

The new recipe bars are finally in stores in my area and I have to admit that this new version is a big improvement.  The peanut butter is creamier, the chocolate is more rich, and the texture now resembles a 5th Avenue bar, a drastic improvement over the dense orange brick that could get hard enough to break your teeth.
