Snickers Cruncher Candy Bar

So this afternoon I got craving a candy bar and headed upstairs to the snack machine.  I was only half paying attention when I dropped my 35 cents into the coin slot and pressed the button for a SNICKERS bar.  Ripped it open, took a bite, and promptly spat it out.  Ugh!  It was one of those new SNICKERS CRUNCHER bars, the wrapper of which is deceptively similar to the traditional SNICKERS that I've grown to love.  Why'd they do that?

The Cruncher bar has chocolate and peanuts, sure.  But they've replaced the nougat with crispy rice.  The result is a semi-dry slightly crunchy bar that tastes like Rice Krispies smothered in stale peanut butter.  Ick.
