NutRageous is a candy bar made by the Hershey Company. It consists of Reese's Peanut Butter topped with roasted peanuts, caramel and a chocolate flavoured coating. Developed as a candy bar loosely based on the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, NutRageous was first sold in 1994. NutRageous was originally called Acclaim, but this name was changed just prior to its release. The target consumer base, children, did not appreciate 'Acclaim' as readily as they did 'NutRageous.' NutRageous is similar to the Baby Ruth and Snickers candy bars in its makeup. All three of these chocolate bars use caramel and peanuts. Baby Ruth and NutRageous share a lumpy texture on top of the bar produced by the covered peanuts. NutRageous, however, utilizes Reese's Peanut Butter for the center instead of nougat.
