After reading Candyfreak by Steve Almond, I decided to check out some of the products he recommended. One thing that came up were limited edition candies, such as the Hershey’s White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, so I looked and what do you know, a small local grocery had them! I bought one.
I waited a couple of days until the urge to try it struck, and then, I got out a knife. Yes, a knife. I pretended to have a tasting party, but I was the only one doing the tasting.
Taste wise it was good, the usual peanut butter filling, and the white chocolate was nice, but I wasn’t impressed. They were too skimpy with the white chocolate on the bottom of the “cup” so it stuck to the wrapper. I’d have to check see if the weight of the package was lighter – I wouldn’t be surprised if it were. Either that, or they’ve changed the ratio of chocolate to peanut butter – which would be cheaper for them.
Bottom line? I think they’re trying to pull a fast one. Guess I’m getting too paranoid for my own good.
