Nestle Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cups Frozen Dairy Dessert Bars Review

[New for 2016] As a lover of Butterfingers but not so much their Butterfinger peanut butter cup brothers, I was still pretty excited when I first spied the box containing today's review.

Nestle Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cup Frozen Dairy Dessert Bars
Butterfinger flavored frozen bar with a chocolatey coating

Way to set the mood Nestle

Geez, pretty small at 2.5 oz. 
Might be tempted for a second one depending on how well this goes.

quick first impression: it's more peanut butter than anything. Yes it's a Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cup, but I wanted the Butterfinger to be more of a factor. Instead it feels like it's hanging out in the area but I'm not quiet sure where. (I said this about the actual Butterfinger pb cup candy as well)

If you are wondering, no, I didn't notice the Butter finger bits you see.

The shell makes fun cracking sounds but the chocolate is by no means the main flavor going on here. We're not getting the usual Butterfinger chocolate to filling flavor ratio. I want both sides to be stronger though by now I should realize that's often a tough request when translating from regular candy bar to frozen dessert bar.

There is a fairly unique aftertaste. In one way, it's kind of annoying and not quite right. Fake maybe and not a positive. On the other hand, part of me does get a lingering Butterfinger vibe to it.

Am I tempted for a second one right now? Nope.

On Second Scoop: With lowered expectations and a hungrier belly, this tiny 2" x 2" treat isn't bad. A small part of me was actually tempted to go for a second one today. The Butterfinger vibe could be stronger, and it is frozen dairy dessert, but it's not a total loss. I suspect (hope) they will grow on me as I finish off the box over the next week or so. Don't rush out for them, but if there's a sale, sure, give them a shot if you are tempted.

The Final Scoop: Yeah, they grew on me. Nothing epic mind you, but I didn't mind slowly finishing the box. Maybe I will try another box next year :)

Verdict?  could be better
Buy Again?  stranger things have happened

More importantly, how did the battery taste?

I wonder if its possible to eat that in one bite?

Dubba Scoops said...

It's small but not quite that small!

I love the Peanut Butter Cup Butterfinger candy and thought why a Peanut Butter Cup Butterfinger ice cream novelty hadn't been made yet. And so when I saw this in stores now I was filled with joy!

So much potential with this one. Gotta temper expectations with the fact this is not an ice-cream version of the candy, but an ice cream intended to resemble the candy.


@Dubba Any intentions to review the new Sam's Choice ice creams? They recently came out with a cookie butter & peach cobbler among others.

Sam's choice is pretty lazy with their cross contamination protocols, but we'll see, we'll send Nick in if all else fails.

@Dubba

What?

But listeria adds texture!

Dubba Scoops said...

Not that kind of cross contamination! many (if not all) of their flavors say "may contain traces of almonds, cashews, coconut, hazelnuts, pecans, pistachios, walnuts and peanuts". That's a no-no in our house.

I agree with you on the butterfinger cups. I like mine extra crunchy with butterfinger bits loaded. I love butterfingers and the ice cream should had been loaded with butterfingers. They could add several butterfinger minis in there

Yum will have to look for those new Sam Choice ice creams.

I noticed that Wal-Mart changed the size of the container into pint size rather than the 8 serving container & it looks like they pulled Coffee & Donuts off the shelf.

Save your money. Nothing like a Butterfinger. Should be ashamed to even use that name.

Omg.. I love these. I was in an accident and now have only half my teeth until surgery and can't eat the candy bars anymore but this is the closest I have come to enjoying the Butterfinger taste. I'm addicted to these. They are hard to find too...
