Vegan MoFo Day 28:Crumblz vs Chick o' Stick-a battle of great vegan peanut butter candy proportions

vs

veganmofo 095

Both Crumblz and Chick o' Stick have been proclaimed to taste like "the insides of a Butterfingers bar omgzed" by just about every vegan who tries them.I say vegan because my little brother shrugged his shoulders and said maybe not.
But,the thing is that they do.
And I even took some Crumblz,lined then up on some parchment,coated them in leftover ganache,and they were just like Butterfinger BBs.

Pros/Cons of Crumblz:
really peanut buttery
totally melt in yr mouth,save for a peanut now and again
come in a chocolate cococnut macadamia flavour(!!!)
really crumbly so when you add to ice cream there's little crumbs everywhere in the ice cream for you to eat!
all natural,no preservatives/nasty stuff
expensive and not sold in Canada,or a lot of places,like Whole Foods in Seattle

fun colour,right?!

Pros/Cons of Chick o' Stick:
pretty peanut buttery,but also quite coconutty-it IS a peanut butter toasted coconut candy.THOUGH,with crumblz you get plain,and there's a coconut one!
cheap!sold in lots of places like the scary run down convenience store near King station in Seattle!
no transfats,like you may expect!
melt in yr mouth,until you get some coconut
artificially coloured,but it IS a fun colour,right?

So,with this in mind I must say that Crumblz! is the winner!

It was somewhat of a difficult competition,because I do really like Chick O Stick,but Crumblz are so go eff-bombing good,and yeah,a lot peanut butter-y-er.

I brought back two bags of Crumblz with me from Portland earlier this month,and one Chick O Stick rod.
It's all gone,now.
I brought the Chick O' Stick out at Canadian thanksgiving ummm lunch thingy and offered it to everyone,and my sisters friends from acting class were really impressed.I think everyone had some except for Daniel,but he's a bisque who was angry that there were Sarah's guests because it meant less food/tofurkey for him,but then the next day I brought him all this free Tofurkey I got,so whatever.
Anyways,I actually got the Chick O Stick right outside of Olympia at a gas station driving back with Isa and Justin-it was about 9:30 or 10pm and I had eaten like nothing but a piece of chocolate at Taste of Health earlier that day,so I got a Chick O Stick.Justin said I was gross,I think.But then I fell asleep and next thing I knew I was in Portland.


p.s Crumblz and /or Chick O' Stick,send me free stuff!I could nmake so many awesome desserts incorporating yr candies,it would be great PR!

I've never tried either of these and I had never even heart of Chick o' Stick until a vegan blogger mentioned them a couple years ago (maybe Vegan Ice Cream Paradise?). I'm thinking I might give Crumblz a try next time I place a Vegan Essentials order (I've never seen them in LA). Thanks for the review!

VeggieGirl said...

Never tried any of these!

Virginia said...

i have never heard of these, but i need to get my hands on the crumblz!!! i miss butterfinger!

jess (of Get Sconed!) said...

Did you ever try the Peanut Butter Toffee from TJ's? How the hell is NYC?

bjorkedoff said...

jess,i'm not in NYC until like the 5th or 6th JESUS,READ WHAT I SEND YOU!i'm in ontario!and it's great!

and TJs has peanut butter toffee?!wtf why didn't anybody tell me?grrrrr.i got the salted chocolate almonds,but this sounds sooo goodd....toffee......

p.s kevin is such a tool,remember when he wasn't wowed by TJs?!

Kristen (sugar-skull.com) said...

you need to try zagnuts, too! they're like chick-o-sticks, but better tasting and worse for you (partially hydrogenated oil).

bjorkedoff said...

ooooh!partially hydrgoenated oils!!!even worse than fully hydrogeanted!

Bex said...

oh if only I could get either of these here. Wait maybe that's a good thing.

jess (of Get Sconed!) said...

evan!!

Okay, I reread everything! I was mystified.

Okay, I didn't reread everything, but I scrolled through. really.

I'm sorry that I haven't told you about the Toffee - They were out the last time I looked for it, but that was months ago. It's SO similar to Crumblz..or what I remember them tasting like.

Monique a.k.a. Mo said...

Okay. I'm gonna try these Crumblz. They better be better than Chick O Sticks...otherwise there will be a different battle. I like the mini ones a lot. I can get a bag for a dollar and those bad boys last me forever.

I read this blog and thought I never tried Chick o'stick (the name put me off) Next day after work I walk into Dutch Girl Chocolates on Commerical Drive to buy a chocolate treat. There on the shelf behind the till was bulk "Chicken bones"! Mmm good and about 1.80/ per 100g. Or was it more? Sorry, I was buying other stuff I don't remember exactly.
Now you don't have to run across the border.

thesundaybaker said...

Oops, I just realized after I entered the "enter" button. I don't know if these "Chicken Bones" are vegan or not. I'm a vegetarian. I'm 50% sure as the candy looks just like chick o'stick but in "nugget" form. Since Dutch Girl Chocolates is on the Drive they know vegans. In fact they use to sell vegan truffles made with rice milk. Oh, if you like authentic licorice they have large selection too.

Trish said...

Melisser; the Urban Housewife said...

Dude, you're getting free candy! Try to get the peanut butter bars too, they're even better than Chick O Stick! I dipped both of them in chocolate for my Halloween party, so good!

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in big starting capital.
Nowadays, I feel good, I begin take up real income.
It's all about how to select a proper companion who utilizes your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, and shares the profit with me.

You may ask, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.
