I had a little peanut butter that needed to be used up so I gave these a try. They have a nice peanut butter flavor but they're not stable at room temperature. They must be kept frozen or they'll turn floppy and fall apart while eating them. LCMiller461 dipped hers in melted chocolate but I wanted to keep the carbs to a minimum so I left mine plain.
UPDATE: I've changed my rating for these. Although the flavor is quite good, the consistency is very odd. As soon as they start to soften in my mouth, they turn to glue. I end up with this stuff stuck to my teeth and the roof of my mouth and it's not very pleasant.
