Boyer Smoothies

The alternative to Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, this unattractive (imagine the pasty skin tone of William F. Buckley, Jr. in candy form), chocolate-free peanut butter cup answers the question "What if the guy who was holding the peanut butter ran into another guy holding peanut butter, but in the form of a chocolate bar?" Actually, as a trip to the humble Boyer Candy Web site will explain, the outer coating is a butterscotch-flavored substance. For fans of chunky peanut butter, the filling has ground up bits of peanuts. Why this Altoona, PA-based candy manufacturer, home to the better-known and equally scrumptious Mallow Cup, doesn't rule the roost in American candy making is clear, but when's the last time you found redeemable "coins" inside your Hershey product?

    I have been searching for this brand of Peanut Butter for years. I am not a huge fan of chocolate, so Reese's was never my favorite peanut butter cup. But now that I know the difference is a butterscotch type coating, I understand. AND I LOVED THE PEANUT BUTTER CENTER. People who try Boyer after eating Reese's their whole life will never understand, so I will keep them my little secret. I am so glad I was able to find this page. THANK YOU.
