One of the few benefits of spending a few nights in Beatty, Nevada (not far from Death Valley) is that the Death Valley Nut & Candy Store was a 2 minute walk from our motel.
We wandered their isles the other night looking for what to buy. I found a good assortment of sugar infused gluttony and ended up buying a few bags. The only bag I bought without prior experience was the Dark Chocolate Honeycomb Sponge candy, pictured below. (Strangely, Amazon sells Sponge Taffy Boxed Chocolates which looks similar.)
But the outside is a bit deceiving. Inside is the "honeycomb" which is really like a styrofoam compound infused with the flavor of a weak butterfinger candy bar (peanut butter and a hint of butterscotch).
In other words, yummy. :-)
Too bad the whole bag is gone already... But there are still Orange Slices and Now & Laters left.
