[Candy Review] Hershey’s Milk Chocolate with Caramel

Purchased at: Marathon
Cost: $.99
Size: 1.3 oz
Review by: Casual Clay Cunningham

I really beat up on Hershey’s products recently, as their products made up three of my Five Most Unnecessary Candy Concoctions List, which may have created the false impression that I hate everything they produce. To combat this, I was eager to try the new Hershey bar with Caramel as it seemed like something I would enjoy.

Well, not to pile on, but to my disappointment, my perception was incorrect.

Review:

The problems started right off the bat for me, as there is an unpleasant, soggy quality to both the taste and texture of the bar. The result is a creation that, quite frankly, doesn’t taste good. It’s almost like something you picked up out of a swimming pool. Not quite that bad, mind you, but much closer than I would have hoped for.

Also, the aftertaste is much too strong. Granted I didn’t care for it the first go around, but a nearby beverage is an absolute must if you are going to attempt to eat this thing, because you will be tasting it hard for a long time after you’ve finished.

Lastly, it made my mouth very phlegmy. Hershey’s Milk Chocolate with Caramel gave me unfortunate flashbacks to the gross soups my mom used to force-feed me when I was battling strep throat as a kid. It didn’t make me feel sick, but there is an odd sort of illness recreation quality to the bar which is just another reason not to buy it.

Does It Hit The Spot?

I’m sad to report that no, it does not at all. I really had a good feeling about this one when I bought it. Sadly, those feelings were temporary as what I was left with was a soggy, squishy, strep-throaty waste of my hard earned $.99.
