I owe an apology to the makers of Abba-Zaba candy taffy bars. I judged your product and it sat in our cupboard for months, untouched, and unloved. In my defense, it looks seriously unappetizing. The packaging reminds me of a New York taxi cab (which I’ve since learned is intentional) and it felt hard as a rock when we first touched it.
We must have been desperate for candy because my husband randomly decided to open the Abba-Zaba bar last week. The bar was bright white – no artificial colour in sight – which should have been a good thing but for some illogical reason it only reconfirmed my prejudice against this candy. I mean, who wants to eat candy that looks like a piece of plastic??
Much to my surprise, the Abba-Zaba was delicious! Like seriously delicious. The taffy was soft and delightfully chewy, not at all hard like I imagined. And it was filled with the most amazing salty peanut butter. They advertise it as real peanut butter and I can definitely confirm it was 100% real. It was textured like real peanut butter and much better than the fake stuff in my opinion.
I’m so happy Moe sent us this candy bar because I genuinely don’t think I would have ever been inclined to pick this one out in a shop, and that would have been a shame because taffy and peanut butter might be one of my new favourite combinations.
Enjoy the sweet stuff,
