If you like ‘em, you’re in luck, if you don’t, well, you may want to look for another job—one with a compensation package that doesn’t exchange vacation time and dental insurance for nut-covered bars.
Payday operates on a simple premise; trying to fit as many peanuts as possible on a six-inch rod of caramel, possibly inspired by the time the guy that invented it dropped a warm rod of caramel between the cushions of his couch, causing the inevitable stores of peanuts therein to become entrapped in the sticky substance . Just how many of these plucky legumes cling to your average Payday? The answer is about a handful. This might not sound particularly impressive, but remember that most other candy bars that feature peanuts only contain a smidgen. Also, I have huge hands.
The flavor combination is tried and true, but no less tasty for this. The crunchy peanuts are very salty and find a pleasant partnership with the sweet, chewy caramel. Just one bar has 14% of your recommended daily protein intake and 20% of your recommended daily fat intake, making it a great choice for staying alive while the forest rangers locate you. The caramel tasted slightly rubbery to me at times but as this would certainly never deter a bear, you should eat it anyway.
