Double Dutch Sweets - handmade "Snickers" bar - you have to eat this now

Wow...just, wow

I love the Bay Area trend of taking nostalgic comfort foods and applying quality ingredients and excellent craftmanship. The Ramona Bar is a perfect representation of this movement

(per the website description):

"Inspired by the classic Snickers candy bar, our Ramona bar has layers of buttery caramel and honey nougat with roasted peanuts that are hand dipped in single source Venezuelan dark chocolate. These nostalgic treats are lightly finished with Maldon sea salt flakes before they are carefully tucked in bright pink foil."

This thing is just perfect - the textures, flavors, proportions - everything is perfect. It is so like I remember a Snickers to be yet so much better than a Snickers actually is.

I just wish they distributed in Berkeley - had to drive to Miette Jack London Square to pick them up and I fear four wasn't enough to keep this house satisfied.

They're currently distributing at some select shops and candy stores. Call ahead: Miette Ferry Plaza was on the distribution list but didn't have any when I dropped by. You can also buy via mail order.
