PRODUCT REVIEW: A sprinkling of coarse salt covers these deep brown, super-crunchy and pillow-shaped, whole-grain-tasting nuggets. Bit into one and a smear of lightly sweet, creamy cocoa greets your palate, followed by a hint of mildly salty peanut butter. Beware: the decadent (and not overpoweringly sweet) filling is oddly addictive, perhaps because you never feel like you got quite enough in one bit. But then again, they are a relatively wholesome snack, there are only 3 grams of sugar per each serving of 12 nuggets, and a handful or two is all you need to feel truly satisfied and treated!
