Editor's Note: Introducing Meet Me Mondays - Candy Version! I am Britta Malsch, the Purchasing Manager at Anderson's Candy Shop. I also help the Andersons with social media duties. As I enter my 10th year at the store, another one of my goals has been to help introduce each of our delicious candies to our wonderful customers, while also providing a tool for the general public to be able to identify our candy. I hope you enjoy this series which will highlight all the Anderson's Candy that you love!
Tenth in our series is Peanut Butter Cream!
Before I had the pleasure of working for the Anderson family, I thought I loved Peanut Butter, just as most people would say. The go to being Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups… Yum. That was until I had that first bite of Anderson’s Peanut Butter Cream, WOW! There hasn’t been a peanut butter candy created yet that is equal to our Peanut Butter Cream. Seriously.
Our Peanut Butter Cream bar was developed by third-generation candymaker and owner, the late Leif Anderson. He too was a peanut butter lover and adored the famous Reese's candy. One day he thought to himself, I make the best chocolates you can buy... I bet I can make a peanut butter cream that is even better!
He quickly developed a special variation of our decadent brown sugar buttercream center and blended it with his favorite rich, smooth, creamy, salty-sweet peanut butter. The next bit was easy! The harmony between our chocolate and the finished peanut butter cream center was magic! It truly has to be tasted to be believed.
The perfect ration of this Peanut Butter Cream center to chocolate was in our two-patty candy bar form, rather than small individual pieces. And so, the Peanut Butter Cream Bar as you know it today was born!
When you look at our Peanut Butter Cream bar you will see that it follows our usual format of being rolled into two halves - perfect for sharing! (If you’re able to eat only half, you deserve an award if you ask us!) The "mark" found on top will be a capital letter cursive “P” on one patty and a “B” on the other which stands for, you guessed it - Peanut Butter!
FUN FACTS: If you are looking for a bite-size Peanut Butter candy don't worry. We do have other delicious Peanut Butter treats in our line for that including our refined Peanut Butter Truffle and our addicting flaky crunchy Peanut Butter Crunch (think Butterfinger but BETTER!)
Peanut Butter Cream is also GLUTEN FREE!
