Customers beg for popular discontinued snack to return as it’s ‘top of everyone’s list’ for a comeback
FANS of this old-school Planter’s snack are begging the company to bring it back.
PB Crisps consisted of a peanut-shaped graham cracker shell filled with creamy peanut butter.
If the trivia site UberFacts asked his followers about their favorite snack on Twitter, PB Crisps, was one of the most popular responses.
“The fact that Planter’s PB CRISPS isn’t at the top of the replies makes me think maybe something’s broken.” tweeted the Consumer Time Capsule, a site focused on nostalgic groceries.
“Here is an original bag from my collection to refresh everyone’s memory.”
Many other commentators were on board to bring back the snack.
“I miss these so much!” said one.
“My god yes,” said another commenter.
“There are so many people who want these back, it’s ridiculous.”
There’s even an entire online movement with its own website focused on convincing Hormel, Planters’ parent company, to bring the cookies back.
“There is a large, cult-like following of people in the US who want to buy these again,” the website said in a letter addressed to Hormel.
“There is enough interest on the internet to start a relaunch of PB Crisps.”
The letter writer even offered to help the company with packaging design, taste testing and marketing.
Planters started making PB chips in 1992, but it’s not exactly clear when the cookies were discontinued.
Some sources say production ended as early as 1994 or 1995, but buyers have reported not buying them until the early 2000s.
Planters reached out to the PB Crisps movement on Twitter in 2017.
“We appreciate the love for PB crisps, unfortunately there hasn’t been enough consumer demand to continue producing them,” the company said called.
The snacks also came in chocolate and strawberry varieties.
Some other popular responses to UberFacts’ post were those of Taco Bell Double decker tacos And rice conesa Kellogg’s cereal similar to Rice Krispies with an added sugar coating.
