Description. From the same no-nonsense candy corp. that brought us the Salted Nut Roll comes the Bun Bar — a creamy patty (maple, vanilla, or caramel) topped with roasted peanuts and dipped in chocolate. Like its tubular brand sibling, the Bun Bar 1) bears a faintly PG-13 name; 2) inducts sugar into the bloodstream at the same rate one might expect from an intravenous injection; and 3) bears an uncomfortable resemblance to a turd.
Packaging/Branding. Between the blocky fonts and the brown stripes on a beige background, the packaging hearkens back to a high-school football player’s bedroom in the late 1980s, or to a hideous shirt Steve Sanders might have worn.
