Goobers Milk Chocolate Peanuts

Ya gotta love America. Even when certain characteristics of a product are not, shall we say, optimum, there are often other characteristics that fit a market niche.
Take Nestle's Goobers, for example. Compared to Ritter Sport Golden Peanut or Lambertz Peanut Mountains, Goobers fall short in the taste category. The chocolate is too sweet, it has that harsh flavor of a not-very-good chocolate, and the peanuts are quite small, with even tiny broken bits being covered in chocolate.
But Goobers hits its niche well. They must have some sort of agreement with movie theaters to carry them at outrageous prices, so they sell well there, and they are very handy to toss into your mouth while watching a mega film epic like "Becoming Jane."
For active chocolate connoisseur-ing experience, buy the other guys. If you're in an American movie theater, and chocolate peanuts are calling you, enjoy some Goobers.
