Snickers with Peanut Butter
Mars Inc., the makers of Snickers, does make a couple of Snickers products that do have peanut butter. These candy bars are Snickers Creamy Peanut Butter, Snickers Crunchy Peanut Butter, and Snickers Peanut Butter Crisper.
The first addition of peanut butter to a Snickers was in 1960, based on information Snack History. The peanut butter was in nougat and not layered in the bar like Snickers Creamy you find today. Since the 1960s, variations of Snickers with peanut butter have emerged through the years. Here’s a 1993 commercial for the “new” Snickers Peanut Butter Bar.
