Reviews forPeanut Butter Popcorn Bars
"Despite the yummy idea of pairing peanut butter with popcorn, it just doesn't work. Super hard to cut into "bars"; not enough peanut butter flavour (considering it's the first item in the title); and they're too hard to really enjoy (it is popcorn after all - should be hard but "poppy")."
"We just didn't go for these. The flavor was okay. It's just that they were very chewy, when you expect a popcorn bar to be more ... snappy I guess."
"Can I use the popcorn that is done in the mircowave oven?"
