I thought a chocolate blog would have a certain obligation to have a Hershey’s bar. As I bought this one, I realized that it’s been years since I’ve had one. I remember when they used to actually look like chocolate bars, wrapped in foil and paper. Now they’re wrapped in skimpy plastic like any other candy. They used to be thicker, now they’re approaching paper thin.
Even though it was a cool and rainy day, the chocolate was still exceedingly melty, making it nigh impossible to break off a piece. Instead of breaking, I had to tear along the marks as if peeling off a sticker. It also vanished instantly in my mouth, allowing little time to taste its caramel flavor. Despite being melty, it has a rather rough mouthfeel. And leaves grease in your throat, which I absolutely abhor.
So I think you guys already know this, but Hershey’s is a candy bar, not a chocolate bar (it’s blasphemy to call it such.) It barely even tastes like chocolate at all, which is why you eat it when you want a sweet, not a chocolate.
