Day Twenty Eight: Baby Ruth

Only two more posts to go! Yay! I can't wait to start writing about something more worthwhile.
Baby Ruth
Bursting with Peanuts, Rich Caramel and Chewy Nougat Savour the Good StuffDid you know:
  • There is speculation to who this chocolate bar was named after: Babe Ruth or President Grover Cleavland's daughter Ruth
  • This bar carries lots of pop culture references including Caddyshack, Goonies, That 70's Show, Hellboy, Friends and Hairspray
  • The advertising and marketing for this bar have had a heavy baseball-oriented theme and during the summer and post-season of the 2007 season, a TV ad for the candy bar showed an entire stadium filled with people munching Baby Ruths, and thus having to "hum" rather than singing along with "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" during the seventh-inning stretch.
Grand Slam! Ha ha well it wasn't THAT amazing, but this was pretty good. There was less focus on the chocolate and more on the nougat and caramel. Very yummy indeed.

This bar had caramel on the bottom nestled under some tasty (yes, i'm getting attached to it) nougat, which was coated in peanuts and then dipped in chocolate! There was definitely a lot of tastes going on here which was great. It was flavourful and there was lots of 'good stuff'. Wikipedia was right: the nougat tastes more like fudge in this bar.

This one gets a 'recommended' (for those of you who like nougat) from me.
