I didn’t buy this bag. I’ve had enough Hershey’s lately. But seeing as it was in the house, well, I couldn’t let it go without making a few comments. Let me just ignore the “truffle” part of the name, which there is no way I could agree with, even if it is just “filled with” instead of calling the entire chocolate a truffle. Anyway, they are in the Hershey’s Kiss format, which usually means a better taste to me.
My experience with these little things has been confusing. I had one at first and didn’t like it. At all. A couple days later, I thought they were rather good. So let me try and balance out these two opposite experiences.
These chocolates have very much of a warm, walnut brownie taste to them, especially with the inner filling. This means that there’s lots of chocolateyness and lots of sugar. So it follows naturally that the degree of liking will depend on the person and their mood. Sometimes you’re in the mood for simpler pleasures; sometimes you’re not. Then there are the people who don’t even like to “waste their time” with things like this. But for a small pleasure (like the brownies they remind me of), I’d say Hershey’s did a nice enough job.
