Believe it or not, I didn’t pick these up to try and win one of Tony Stewart or Ryan Newman’s favorite Chevys. I was actually pretty disappointed to see Nutter Butter as an official sponsor of Nascar. To me, such an affiliation is only slightly more appealing that being an official sponsor of monster trucks, demolition derbys, or any other red-neck non-sports. Nutter Butters can do better, or so I thought.
I should have taken it as a sign when there I couldn’t find these on the Nutter Butter site. There is a reason Nabisco doesn’t advertise these – they suck.
The main problem is the outer wafer. The texture and taste (if you can call it that) is somewhere between a generic ice cream cup and a styrophoam peanut. The only redeeming quality is the traditional Nutter Butter creme, but even that isn’t enough to save these patties.
Next problem – the 5 patty serving size. How the hell am I supposed to cleanly break off 5 patties? Maybe this isn’t a problem for the typical Nascar fan who wouldn’t be caught dead without a chewing tobacco, coors light, and a utility knife, but the rest of us just gets shattered and shitty cookies.
A more flavorful wafer could at least resulted in a decent Nutter Butter/Sugar Wafer hybrid. Instead, Nabisco gave us a cookie with a taste almost as boring as watching stock cars maneuver around an oval for 5 hours.
Now just in case I’ve offended the sole Nascar fan who came across this review while trying to find race results – I’m sorry. You and your clan don’t deserv to be chastised for enjoying a shitty non-sport. I’ll even give you my entry for a chance at Tony or Ryan’s Chevy. I don’t want them, I just want a damn Nutter Butter.
