Cadbury Starbar: So Delicious!

The Cadbury Starbar is a new discovery for me, but has been around for decades under a number of names- Moro, Peanut Boost, and Wunderbar, to name a few. The Cadbury website and Wikipedia both offer brief histories of the candy bar. Nonetheless, it's thrillingly new to me. The closest approximation I can make is that it's like a delicate round Snickers bar, but more simple and better tasting. You've got a thick wrapper of Cadbury's perfect milk chocolate. That chocolate covers a surprisingly robust and buttery layer of caramel. This is not a polite little layer of caramel; it constitutes about 1/3 of the bar's substance. The center of the Starbar is riddled with peanuts to add a substantive crunch to each bite. The wrapper advertises "a chewy cosmos of peanuts and caramel," and it delivers. I wish I could find these around New York more frequently....
