A NutRageous split in half

NutRageous is a chocolate bar made by the The Hershey Company. It consists of Reese's Peanut Butter topped with roasted peanuts and caramel enrobed in chocolate-flavored coating. Developed as a candy bar loosely based on the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, NutRageous was first sold in 1994.[1] NutRageous was originally called Acclaim, but this name was changed just prior to its release due to focus groups (mainly of children) responding more to the "NutRageous" branding.[2] In 2014, "Nutrageous" was rebranded as "Nut Bar" internationally and the weight of the bar was reduced from 51 g to 47 g.
