NutRageous is yet another delicacy by The Hershey company. It is a chocolate bar filled with peanut butter, roasted peanuts, and caramel. This candy bar is well known because it contains Reese’s peanut butter. And if you think about it, it’s really like a Reese’s peanut butter cup plus almonds plus caramel. So it is extra sweet and creamy!
History of the NutRageous Candy Bar
NutRageous was first invented in the name of ‘Acclaim’ in 1994. However, the company changed it to ‘NutRageous’ even before the production started.
This was because the targeted consumers for this bar were kids. Thus, a new creative name was introduced. In 2014, the name was again changed to Nut Bar due to some controversies.
And again, in 2018, a variant of Nutrageous was released, which was named Reese’s Outrageous.
What Makes Nutrageous Candy Unique?
To begin with, the roasted peanuts and caramel flavor make it incredibly delicious, complemented by that unique Hershey Milk chocolate flavor. The combination of peanut with caramel got famous worldwide and was a huge success.
The consumers accepted the name pretty much, but in 2014, unfortunately, it was changed to Nut Bar by Hershey’s, and even its weight was reduced from 51-gram to 47-gram.
Regardless of its name, the bar is famous among people of all age groups. Its unique ingredients and taste have made it enjoyable for the kids as well as for the adults.
