Van Houten Milk Chocolate

A chocolate bar you'll want to avoid.

Reese’s Sticks

Sticks of waver and peanut butter in Hershey's milk chocolate.

Nestlé Butterfinger vs Reese’s Crispy Crunchy

And I’m back with yet another Reese’s offering, this time it’s “milk chocolate, peanut butter, crispy peanut butter candy and peanuts.” It sounded something like a Butterfinger, so I decided to do a side-by-side comparison. Butterfingers usually aren’t my favorite choice …

Reese’s Dark Peanut Butter Cups

There seems to be a growing trend of darkness in the chocolate world, but darker isn’t always better. Put to the test this time is the dark version of a classic Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. I didn’t realize how much …

Reese’s Whipps

As long as I was trying so many peanut butter chocolates, I thought it was high time I got to a Reese’s Whipps. Especially since they’re not even marked as new anymore. Has it really been that long since they …

Hershey’s Competition

Update: This competition is now closed Our friends at Herhsey got in touch to tell us they’d like to give Chocablog readers some free stuff as part of their Hershey’s Extra Dark promotion. So it’s competition time again! We’re giving away three …

Hershey’s Kisses Filled With Truffle

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 …

Hershey’s Mr Goodbar

This is the last of the current crop of American bars sent to us by online sweet shop Handy Candy. I’m often wary of Hershey’s chocolate and I have to say, the name of this particular bar didn’t fill me with …

Cadbury Caramello

This is one of a small box of samples sent to us by Handy Candy – a ‘retro’ online sweet shop who’ve revently started selling US imports. As with most (all?) Cadbury products in America, it’s actually made by Hershey. According …

Hershey’s Bliss

I was planning on getting some Hershey’s Kisses to talk about the impact of their shape on the taste, but then I realized I’d never tried the fairly new Bliss range, so here it is instead. I really like the coloring …

Hershey’s Milk Chocolate

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 …

Hershey’s Cacao Reserve Single Origin

The first thing that didn’t seem right about this set was that, although it has three chocolates from different origins, they’re all different percentages cacao. Wouldn’t it make more sense to have them all the same so that you can …

Hershey’s Premium Dark Chocolate Assortment

I don’t much like Hershey’s. I’ll try and be fair about them, but I’ll make this no secret. Yet their new products seem like spiders’ webs for me: they look decent enough, then turn out to be nothing special. Still, …

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

When I first left California for foreign climes, I knew I’d miss the food I’d grown up with: tortilla chips and refried beans, hamburgers with avocado and monterey jack. What I didn’t expect was the desperate desire for candy. Reese’s …

Hershey’s Natural Flavanol Antioxidant Milk Chocolate

This is the final product in the new Hershey’s Goodness range, and frankly, it’s a good job the other two had some redeeming features, because this one is pretty much inedible. Just like the others, the packagaing talks about how wonderfully …

Hershey’s Whole Bean

Hershey’s Whole Bean is part of the Hershey’s Goodness range and positioned to promote the health benefits of chocolate. The packaging claims 7g of fibre per serving and “40% less sugar than the leading milk chocolate”. That’s a fact I find …

Hershey’s All Natural Extra Dark

I’m sitting her with half a piece of Hershey’s Extra Dark 60% cacao chocolate melting in my mouth, and I still can’t decide if I like it or not. I’m delighted to report that it tastes like chocolate. With only one …

Reese’s Nutrageous

Oh how I love my little local convenience shop. It may be small, but it sells absolutely everything I could ever need – and often has little unexpected surprises on the shelves. Take this for instance. We don’t often get Hershey’s …

Hershey’s Cookies ‘n’ Creme

Hershey’s isn’t something you come across every day here in the UK, so I thought I’d give this a try. Billed as ‘Chocolate cookie bits in white chocolate’, it sounded just what I needed on a Friday evening. The bar is quite …
