Reese Fudge

Posted by: Michael In: Candy Bars

I don’t think I’ve ever had a variety of Reese Peanut Butter Cups that I’ve outright disliked. And there have definitely been a lot of them. There’s something about that oddly crumbly peanut butter combined with chocolate that I just can’t resist.
Which is to say that I definitely enjoyed Reese Fudge, but at [...]

Maltesers

Posted by: Michael In: Candy Bars

Maltesers have always been a favourite of mine. There’s something about those chocolately, malty little balls that I find kind of irresistible.
Odds are, you’re probably more familiar with Whoppers than with Maltesers – as far as I’m aware, Maltesers are hard to come by in the States, while Whoppers are quite prevalent. [...]

Snickers Peanut Butter

Posted by: Michael In: Candy Bars

Ah, Snickers: the old standby. It’s not the most exciting candy bar in the store, but it’s always there when you need it, and it’s always tasty. I like Snickers. I also like peanut butter. So, is this two great tastes that taste great together? Uh… kind of?
Snickers Peanut Butter [...]

Kit Kat Dark - 70% Cocoa

Posted by: Michael In: Candy Bars

Note: For some reason I wrote this review a couple of years ago, and then never posted it. But I’m pretty sure this bar is still being sold, so… here you go.
The media have done a pretty good job of convincing people that dark chocolate is good for them – when I bought this [...]

Kinder Chocolate

Posted by: Michael In: Candy Bars

Kinder Chocolate is pretty easy to describe: it’s essentially just a Kinder Surprise in bar form. It is perhaps a tad creamier than a Kinder egg, but otherwise the taste is pretty much identical.
Kinder Chocolate is a smaller-than-average bar (it’s about half the size of a typical candy bar), so it’s pretty good if [...]

Hershey’s Kisses - Chocolate Truffle

Posted by: Michael In: Candy Bars| Truffles

These were a bit of a surprise. I’ve never particularly been a fan of Hershey’s Kisses – the crumbly texture and overly sweet taste has always struck me as being even worse than the typical Hershey milk chocolate. Plus, my experience with Hershey-made truffles has so far been less than stellar. But [...]

Buncha Crunch

Posted by: Michael In: Candy Bars

The combination of puffed rice and milk chocolate is definitely a good one, so I enjoy eating a Crunch bar every now and then, even if the quality of the chocolate is a bit on the iffy side. Buncha Crunch is essentially just a bite-sized version of Crunch, so it should pretty much taste [...]

Zero

Posted by: Michael In: Candy Bars

Not to be confused with the far superior Belgian chocolate truffle bar, Hershey’s Zero consists of nougat studded with tiny pieces of almonds and peanuts, topped with chewy caramel and enrobed in white chocolate. Only, it’s not really white chocolate – Hershey calls it “white fudge,” presumably because it doesn’t contain the requisite amount [...]

Hershey’s Symphony

Posted by: Michael In: Candy Bars| Chocolate

Though Hershey has seen fit to cheapen many of its bars by replacing milk chocolate with mockolate in an effort to cut costs, it’s nice to see that you can still find real milk chocolate in at least a few Hershey products.
Hershey’s Symphony is actually quite similar to a Heath bar, only with the proportions [...]

Coconut Patties

Posted by: Michael In: Candy Bars

This is the second coconut confection that I purchased from the Cracker Barrel, and it’s pretty much the complete opposite of the 3 Color Coconut, at least in terms of quality. Where 3 Color Coconut features the worst qualities of coconut candy (unpleasant chewiness combined with a lack of flavour), Coconut Patties features the [...]
