Candy Snob: Perfect Name at First Glance.
Boy was I ready to rip this blogger a new one. This was going to be a rant to top all rants, and you know I don’t like to rant here.
Then something came over me and I actually read the post.
I got past the traffic building inflammatory headline:
Review: Hershey’s Chocolate Truffle Kisses – “Don’t bother”
How dare they? How dare they attack ANY chocolate made in Pennsylvania? But they didn’t attack, they reviewed – offered their opinion:
The taste was VERY milky – which in the case of Hershey’s chocolate is to say “sour milky.” And there is no taste differential between the coating and the truffle filling. But at least that lack of distinction is consistent, there is virtually no difference in texture either. When you have a great truffle, there is a distinct difference between the harder coating that gives way to a softer, creamier filling.
Then, of all things, they suggested an alternative, if one was a real “mass market truffle fan.” So there you have it, a biased opinion based on one person’s impression – a review.
Snobs? Not yet as far as I can tell.
Damn. Wish I would have thought to start a chocolate candy review blog.
Well, that’s the appeal of Hershey’s, isn’t it? It’s just so Hershey’s. Sort of bland, but comforting. I grew up near Hershey, PA, so I’m a bit protective of them.

@Gretchen: It IS Milk Chocolate after all. Not bourbon balls. Oh, just noticed some good Google ads… feel free to click any and click often!
