Hershey's Cookies and cream bar is an anomaly in the world of
white chocolate. I have mixed feelings about white chocolate,
and I'm keenly aware of the debate that white chocolate is not
actually chocolate. Every time I post anything online that references
white chocolate I get a lot of comments on either side of the
fence. My opinions on white chocolate are simple, I believe
that white chocolate is in fact chocolate, both technically
and sociologically. We call it chocolate, and it does contain
elements from the cocoa plant. I will say that personally white
chocolate is my least favorite of the chocolate varieties, but
my opinion may not matter to some of you as milk, not dark,
chocolate is my favorite.
So where does this
bar change things? It has to do with the fact that it's one
of my favorite white chocolate bars. In fact it might be one
of my favorite chocolate bars, or at the very least in my top
50 (trust me that's a big honour). I'm not sure why this bar
works. It could be the cookie bits, and the way they work with
the white chocolate, or it could be the white chocolate itself.
For me this bar seems much creamier than most white chocolates.
This creaminess makes this bar much more satisfying than most
other white chocolates.
This bar is so tasty
that for the longest time I was convinced that it wasn't even
white chocolate. It wasn't until I read the label and found
out the truth. Before then I just thought it was some kind of
super white chocolate like substance, different than white chocolate
in taste and texture, with the colour being the only similarity.
