Butterfinger Teases Possible New Candy Bar-Flavored Peanut Butter

How is this not already a thing?

National Peanut Butter Day came and went as it does every other year, but one brand got itself a little buzz sure to echo long past National Rotisserie Chicken Day--and that isn’t until June so we’re talking about a long time here. 

Ferrero, the company behind Butterfinger candy bars, posted a photo mock-up depicting a jar of “crispety crunchety” peanut butter on Instagram, along with the caption “Just kidding . . . Unless?” and a coyly asterisked “maybe sometime in the future.” 

Fans responded enthusiastically, as one might expect from anyone who follows @butterfinger on social media. Aside from a sea of affirmative emoji, comments included “YESSSS,” [sic] “Yummy!,” and “We need this.” 

Alas, the need will remain unfulfilled for now. “At this time, there is no set plan or date for rolling out a peanut butter Butterfinger product,” A Ferrero rep told Thrillist when reached for comment.
