Random Thursday

All right, it's time for a mini rant! I wrote this down weeks ago as a RT post and I haven't seen the commercials in awhile, thank goodness, but this is still something that irks me!

Now this is just me ranting, I don't begrudge anyone who likes this candy. It's just the advertisement for it that drove me bonkers!

So Snickers continues to tweak their recipe. No problem. They add peanut butter. Fine. I don't care for the candy so I don't really care for what they add. I don't like nuts, so if it was Snickers, I was willing to trade from my Halloween candy stash!

The ads for this product goes like this: If you like peanut butter and chocolate, you'll love new peanut butter Snickers!"

I heard that and was like what? Seriously?! I love peanut butter and chocolate! Reese's have always and will always be my fave candy, but there is no way I would ever love or even like peanut butter Snickers.


Because, besides having peanut butter and chocolate--like they are advertising--there is also peanuts, caramel and nougat!

I guess that's the standard for Snickers regular bar is a given that people like it. I don't know. It was just poor advertising. Instead of saying peanut butter and chocolate--because really, who doesn't think peanut butter cups when they hear that recipe?--they should say something more like loving Snickers and peanut butter. 

I don't know really, I am not in advertisement for a reason because I suck at it. But I just found that to be a terribly worded commercial.

 Okay rant over! :)

    for some reason this Rant of yours made me laugh!!

    I LOVE peanut butter, and chocolate, and Reeses and Snickers... and i love the Peanut butter snickers.
    But i also love the nuts and nougat and caramel too...

    --I guess thats why I never cared, or really paid much attention to the ads.
    But I agree with your point!!!

    Bad advertising on their part!
