Nutter Butters are habit forming. In spite of a double dose of peanuts from the crisp cookies and creamy filling, their gentle peanut flavor remains elusive. They stimulate your peanutty pleasure center without ever fully satisfying, leaving behind an eternal hunger for just one more. Each bite reveals subtle hints of vanilla, nuances of toast and a haunting trace of salt. The withdrawal symptoms are brutal.
