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 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. [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]

I’m not a big coffee drinker, though I do like the taste of coffee when it’s sweetened or mixed in with other things, like chocolate. I also like Starbucks, though I’m still somewhat bitter over the discontinuation of the Chantico, a chocolate drink which – if you weren’t fortunate enough to try it – [...]
Easter is actually still a while off – it’s not until April 19th this year – but I guess that’s close enough for Cadbury, as the seasonal Creme Eggs are starting to hit the shelves.
Cadbury Creme Eggs are sweet; extremely sweet. As a kid, despite my love for all things sugary, Creme [...]
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 [...]

This is a British import, and I don’t know if it’s some kind of limited edition (I’ve never seen it before) or just a new part of the Dairy Milk line in the U.K., but it’s quite good. You might even say it’s… berry good (well, there goes my credibility).
Dairy Milk – Cranberry [...]
