Snickers dates

When I first heard about Snickers filled dates, I was skeptical. Whenever someone says that a healthy treat tastes “just like” the unhealthier one, I immediately raise an eyebrow. For example, don’t tell me that cauliflower rice tastes like regular rice because that’s an absolute lie. I enjoy both, but you can’t fool me. So I had to try these Snickers dates myself.

So are Snickers Dates > than a Snickers Candy Bar?

Perhaps?! I mean let’s not twist it. These aren’t Snickers. BUT omg they are delicious! You get the milk chocolate and creamy peanut butter, peanuts for the texture you need, and the date is perfectly sweet, giving it that caramel-like flavor. I like to keep them in the freezer and eat them when they’re slightly thawed. Just watch your teeth as they are tough. They definitely give me Snickers vibes, and I have one every night after my workout. So good!
