Damn you Zingerman's
As if I didn't spend enough on the Michigan retailer's website with its selection of varietal honeys, they go along and come up with this.
Strangely, even as a child, I've been able to resist the siren's call of candy. Give me the choice between a potato chip and a chocolate coated something-or-other, I'll take the former every day and three times on Sunday. This holds true with almost every variety, except one. For years, the Snicker's bar has some sort of svengali-like hold over my taste buds. Every Halloween, I routinely pilfer each and every one that my son receives in his goody bag.
So damn those Michiganders up in Ann Arbor. Zingerman's has begun offering the Zzang bar, a Snicker's bar on crack. Honey nougat made from natural peanut butter, rolled in a lusciously-smooth muscavado sugar caramel and topped with butter-toasted peanuts. All of this decadence is enrobed in bittersweet Equadorian chocolate. Thank goodness, it's exorbitantly expensive ($7.00 for 2.5 oz. and worth every penny) or I'd be buying it by the case.
Available online at Zingerman's or at Whole Foods.
