Review: New Keebler Peanut Butter S’mores & How Much Does Macklemore Cost? (+ Peanut Butter & Co. Bee’s Knees Contest Winner!)
Junk Food Nation, my friend Andrew recently posted a link to this list which described how much it would cost to book your favorite female or male artist or band for an event. The amounts are startling, but I guess if you’re willing to pay it, then why not? Justin Timberlake is in the $1 million PLUS range (I’m pretty sure Jimmy Fallon gets him for free), and so is Taylor Swift (she’s a machine).
Other names DID surprise me though. Dave Matthews band, $1 million PLUS? They still exist? Same goes for No Doubt – they’re still around? God I feel old….or maybe I DON’T feel old, because THOSE BANDS are old!
Plus, the fact that some names DIDN’T command more also surprised me. John Legend, only $150K? But…but…I think John Legend is LEGIT. How the hell is HE lower than, say, Nickleback? Are you kidding me? Bruno Mars, $200K+? That’s it? He commands less money than NICKLEBACK?? REALLY??
Anyways, look at the list, and tell me your thoughts and comments below.

Today’s junk food: New Keebler Peanut Butter S’mores!
New Keebler Peanut Butter S’mores were bought the same time as the normal S’mores I reviewed a couple days ago. My first thought when I saw these was: There’s no peanut butter in S’mores! My second thought: why ISN’T there peanut butter in S’mores??? Because that sounds delicious.
Of course, the problem when you look at the image on this package of New Keebler Peanut Butter S’mores: Where IS the marshmallow? All I see is a beige-looking “peanut butter”-y substance. Hmmm. Don’t botch this, Keebler.
New Keebler Peanut Butter S’mores have sugar listed as the #1 ingredient. Yep that sounds about right. Also, as many of you pointed out in my S’mores post, eating this entire package of EIGHT cookies nets you 1040 calories!!!! 1040 CALORIES! Geebus.
New Keebler Peanut Butter S’mores looked just like its non-peanut butter variety – coated in chocolate, each of these cookies ran about 1.5 inches on each side, and .5 inches thick. The package smelled IMMEDIATELY of a very familiar chocolate/peanut butter combo…. honestly, the aroma REALLY reminded me of Little Debbie Nutty Bars. Ok, smelled good. But how was the taste?
These New Keebler Peanut Butter S’mores tasted good. Like, REALLY good. Like the regular S’mores version, they were REALLY chocolaty, and had a nice crunch when it came to the graham-flavored wafers. The thing I was most curious about, obviously, was the cream inside. Would it taste like peanut butter, or would it taste like marshmallow? Amazingly, when I chewed the whole thing together, it tasted like BOTH – I definitely got that sweet distinctly marshmallow flavor, as well as a nice peanut butter and chocolate flavor.
At first, I wasn’t sure where the peanut butter flavor was coming from – the inside cream, or was it mixed with the outside chocolate? In other words, maybe the key flavors were coming from somewhere unexpected, like how the gingerbread flavor in Gingerbread Twix came from the caramel, not the cookie. With these cookies, I tried the chocolate by itself – I didn’t get a lot of peanut notes from it. So the peanut-y flavor HAD to have come from the cream.
Tasting the “cream” by itself, the flavor was REALLY interesting – it reminded me of marzipan, or like these Mexican De La Rosa peanut candies I love. REALLY flavorful, but also light and, indeed, confection-like. Covered in chocolate, I could see how it could represent both marshmallow and peanut flavors.
All in all, REALLY good cookies. I liked them even better than the regular S’mores cookies. Awesome product, Keebler. Now let me go put on my fat pants.
