What is that stuff inside a Butterfinger?

I understand it has something to do with peanuts.

It's not butter and it's not fingers. Beyond that, you're on your own.

No, but I suspect that it's the same material that's found in Fifth Avenues and Clark bars.

I dunno, but the butterfinger websiteofficially declares that it is "crispety and crunchety".

I suppose that after eatin' too many of 'em, your tongue gets all tangled up.

I believe from experience that it is peanut butter flavored glue with orange dye.

Have you looked at the ingredients list on the wrapper?

If not, then please do so.
If yes, then please explain why it doesn't answer your question.

Hmm. That recipe doesn't mention the one ingredient, clearly listed on the Butterfinger wrapper, that I always thought was the key to the crispety-crunchiness: cornflakes.

The real question is, "What is that bogus stuff on the outside of a Butterfinger?" It ain't chocolate, I'll tell you that for free.

I play a game every so often when bored w/ a friend. ::waits for snickering to die down:: ::waits for snickering (becuase I said snickering in this thread) to end::

I name a few ingredients and you tell me the candy bar. Try...chocolate, cookie, caramel.

I mean, I know that it's made out of peanuts and corn syrup and stuff. I just wondered if there was a word for the innards - the way that "nougat" describes the inside of a Three Musketeers.

Christopher's website leads me to believe that it's supposed to be peanut brittle. Intriguing.

Me, too. Kind of like thin layers of brittle "toffee" stacked upon one another. Kind of an ersatz toffee, which is why I have "toffee" in quotes.

I emailed the manufacturer, and asked them what the term for the crispety-crunchety center of a Butterfinger was, and this is their response:
Quote:
Dear Nestlé Consumer,

Thank you for contacting Nestlé. We welcome questions and comments from our consumers.

The Butterfinger center is made from freshly roasted peanuts, chopped, cooled and made into a creamy peanut butter that is blended with a 'sugar candy.' This substance is kneaded, rolled, cut and covered in a chocolatey coating to create the crispety–crunchety, peanut–buttery taste experience loved for over 70 years.

We appreciate your interest in our products and hope you'll visit our website often for latest information on Nestlé products and promotions.

Sincerely,

Nikki Robinson

Excellent work. [pats Fear Itself on the back]

So, it's basically a peanut butter candy? Somebody needs to go cook this and report back.
