Hershey’s Cookies ‘n’ Creme

I’ve had bad experiences with Hershey’s in the past, notably the ordinary milk chocolate bar, and so had some reservations about this, but I thought I’d give this a try anyway.

‘Chocolate cookie bits in white chocolate’, sounds nice enough, and when you see the bar then wow, they weren’t kidding. There’s an absolute ton of cookie pieces here, much more than in the Milkybar I reviewed yesterday. It’s very thin though, sort of like an ordinary milkybar.

There are a lot of cookie pieces here, but like the Milkybar they don’t seem to add anything to the bar, in taste at least. The texture is of course different because of them, but I don’t know if that’s necessarily a good thing.

The taste is ok, it’s a very sweet white chocolate bar, and unfortunately it’s quite plain and not really worth the price that one is expected to pay for it over here.

I find the Hershey’s white bars a little too sweet to eat in one sitting, but the “Nuggets” version of these is pretty nice because it’s the right size. I like the Hershey’s over the Milkybar, which doesn’t use real cocoa butter in it (or at least not the one I had from Canada).

But of course none of them hold a candy to the Green & Black’s white chocolate …

Oops, Freudian slip there … “none of them hold a candle”

Yeah I really should pay more attention to some of the ingredients in the chocolate I eat, as I rarely comment on them. And the Green & Black’s White Chocolate was much better than this, that’s good British chocolate.

When you say the Nuggets, do you mean the Hershey’s Kisses? I got a bag of the White Chocolate Kisses on Friday, I won’t be reviewing them for a while unless it’s requested that I do, but I can see what you mean there about them being the right size.

I actually wasn’t impressed with Green &Blacks’s white chocolate, and I’m a BIG fan of white chocolate! I think Droste makes the best. 😛

Terry – in the States Hershey’s makes something called Nuggets, it’s like a miniature, only thicker. About twice the mass of a Kiss.

I like the format because it’s two bites and seems to work best for items that have integrated bits or nuts.

Ah ok, I should have known better than to second guess you, Cybele.

Those look good, lots of variety there as well, I’ll check them out if I ever see them.
