There are few combinations as perfect in this world as chocolate and peanut butter, and there are very few manifestations of such as perfect as in the Butterfinger. However, fans of the iconic candy bar should prepare for some big changes, because the brand just announced that its tweaking its classic recipe and look.
The crunchy check-out aisle staple, which has been around since 1923, just announced that it's changing its classic recipe for the first time in more than a decade. Though longtime fans need not worry, they're not making any drastic changes, but rather just hoping to improve quality. Specifically, the new bars will boast a higher quality chocolate coating with more milk and cocoa for a richer and creamier taste, according to a press release. Also, they'll feature "carefully selected" peanuts grown in the US and ditch hydrogenated oils and tertiary butylhydroquinone, an additive used to extend freshness.
