I've been spending some time online doing surveys and entering giveaways. It's like a new passion along with my couponing. Last week, I was invited to a survey with Hershey's chocolate. I was then invited to be part of a study; they would send me the new product and I would let them know what I think. Well, I said yes and forgot about it. I'm sure a lot of people agreed to get free chocolate. So, today when the Purolator guy showed up, I had NO idea what was in the box. Sure enough, inside was a small bag with the new chocolates for me to try and a notice that I would be contacted via e-mail to answer some questions in a few days.
Let me just start by saying that you can't go wrong with milk chocolate and almonds in my book, so when they told me they would send me chocolate squared with two almonds in each one, it was a no-brainer. I will also admit that I am more of a Cadbury fan than a Hershey's one, but who is going to argue with free chocolate? Not me!
Okay, so they probably aren't gluten-free, so I only had two...
Here is the plain packaging. They don't want the people in the study to be influenced by the packaging and it is actually not finalized yet.
Well, they are pretty darned good. The milk chocolate is melt-in-your-mouth good and there is a great nut to chocolate ratio. My daughter and I agree that we don't usually care much for Hershey's milk chocolate as it seem to be waxy a lot of the time, but that is not the cse with these. If these come out on the market, and I'm pretty sure they will, you might like to get them, particularly if you are into pre-portioned chocolate goodness.
