I've mentioned in the past that I'm not a huge coffee flavor fan/coffee drinker so the cappuccino one didn't sound so exciting to me.
The Truffles option is a white-chocolate coated bar and just seemed like a fancy way for them to say white-chocolate & milk-chocolate combo. Since I didn’t love the combination in the White Kif Kef or in thier new Neshikolada bars I decided to skip the truffles Pesek Zman too.
That leaves the peanut butter one, I think I mentioned in my review of Ben and Jerry's Chubby Hubby ice cream and more recently in my review of Elite's Shushim Chocolate that as a whole I really like the "peanut butter/chocolate combination", and since lately I've sort of been on a real peanut butter/chocolate combo kick, there was no doubt that’s the Pesek Zman I was going to try.
As soon as I opened the wrapper and even before I put the chocolate wafer finger in my mouth I could smell the rich peanut butter aroma. There was no doubt in my mind that peanut butter was the star of this candy bar.
The milk-chocolate coating was soft and creamy but, being the dark-chocoholic that I am, I think I would have preferred a bittersweet-chocolate coating instead. I thought the chocolate needed to be a richer contrast to the peanut butter. That having been said ,I thought the milk-chocolate was just fine. Given how strong of a peanut butter flavor this treat has the chocolate seemed to be a secondary flavor, so it didn’t really matter all that much.
I actually thought there was a little too much peanut butter cream in the wafer finger. But on the other hand it made the Pesek Zman a very rich treat, after just a few bites I felt like my craving was curbed and I put the rest away for some other time.
The wafer part was thicker and crisper than I had anticipated it would be. That may have been because of the somewhat "stark" texture contrast between the harder wafer and the softer chocolate coating & peanut butter filling. I don’t think the chocolate was soft because it melted in the heat or anything like that, after all it's November, so although today was a somewhat sunny day, it's not like the heat of the Israeli summer. The other possibility is that I automatically compare all wafers to my favorite wafer company; Loacker and even thought the wafer part of this Pesek Zman is perfectly fine I don’t think they are as amazing as some Loacker wafers I love to snack on.
Bottom Line: For me "a little went a long way" with this rich creamy peanut butter flavored Pesek Zman chocolate coated wafer fingers. Even thought it wasn’t my all time favorite wafer I thought this Pesek Zman was wonderful and enjoyable. If this "limited edition" bar stays on the shelf for a long while I can absolutely see myself buying it from time to time when I have a peanut butter/ chocolate combo craving.
