Okay, so here we go. Baby Ruth vs. Payday.
Some, actually many, might think that a Baby Ruth is simply a chocolate covered Payday. They would be wrong. Very wrong. That would be the Payday Avalanche.
First of all a Baby Ruth has peanuts, caramel and chocolate flavored nougat while a Payday is made with simply peanuts and caramel.
This might not sound like a big difference but it is. If you care, it is.
A Baby Ruth is more like a Snickers than a Payday. It has quite a comparable ration of peanuts, caramel and nougat, but the consistencies do differ. Although the tastes are very different, Snickers being far superior, they are more suited to be compared than that of a Baby Ruth to a Payday.
The caramel in a Payday is sandy. The texture reminds me of a Bordeaux chocolate from See's candy. Gritty, in the most appetizing sense. It is sugary, sweet caramel covered with loads of very salty peanuts. Much saltier and more abundant than the peanuts in a Baby Ruth. I love that salty-sweet thing!! I've definitely gotten to the place in my life where I want a nice amount of salt in my desserts. I wanna taste it!
Not only are the peanuts saltier, there are more, so many more!!
Baby Ruth = very sweet with a little crunch
Payday = extremely crunchy and salty with a little sweet
This was a day in which I was in desperate need of some chocolate , so I picked the Baby Ruth, but that in no way shows my alliance. I love them equally as I do all candy bars. According to my needs at the time :)
