According to the Holy Trio of Legitimate Information (twitter/wiki/google) November 4th is National Candy Day. I would have thought that such a day was already covered 5 days ago, but hey, I don’t make the rules. I’m also not about to complain about additional incentives to eat candy. So today I have another “classic” review of Hershey’s Cookies ‘n’ Creme bar.
The Cookies ‘n’ Creme bar is seriously underrated. I can’t think of another mass produced white-chocolate/confection that isn’t a special/limited edition, or hard to find. The bar is made up of white confection (vegetable oils in place of cocoa butter) and studded with the equivalent of oreo cookie bits.
Sweet? Yes. Really, really sweet. Its white ‘chocolate’ and that’s to be expected.
Cloying? Probably. This is mass produced candy..don’t be such a snob.
Throat Searing? No. I see this term thrown around way too often. Chile peppers, alcohol, and acid sear throats – not sugar.
Like so many mass produced confections, the one aspect I really take issue with is the use of hydrogenated oils. I like the bar enough to pick it up from time to time, but I would be much more likely to do so if they made that slight amendment to the ingredient list.
Grade: B- are you a fan?
