Hershey’s Smores Bars were on clearance for $0.29 at the grocery store today, so I bought three as a what-the-heck impulse buy.
How can I describe them? Eating half of one was like having a small, fat, bald man made out of rancid tallow crawl down my throat. Then he took a shit in my esophagus and donkey punched the inside of my stomach until it bled.
:: PUKE ::
So, what should I do with these other two unopened bars?
I wasn’t aware that Hershey’s had anything to do with chocolate. Every product of theirs I have ever encountered seems to consist of brown food colouring, icing sugar and some sort of blubber, in varying proportions.
Give them to someone you don’t like. Either they’ll barf, or they’ll enjoy them and die a few years sooner.
I just sort of shake my head and laugh when I see those commercials for Hershey bars with folks talking about how much they love chocolate. I mean, seriously - if you actually even just sort of like chocolate, you don’t like those revolting, cloyingly sweet greasy things. They don’t taste a bit like chocolate.
I always thought the plain Hershey’s chocolate bar with almonds and Hershey’s plain chocolate bar were perfectly fine. Some of the more involved concoctions are pretty vile but the simple stuff compared favorably with Godiva’s etc. I’ve tasted several different types of purportedly “super premium” chocolates, and I’m always left wondering what the big fuss is all about. They’re have a smoother and finer texture than Hersheys, but they’re not “OMFG this is amazing! There’s a chocolate party going on in my mouth!”
I love Hershey Kisses, and sometimes Hershey’s with almonds, but that’s about it. I know they aren’t the height of chocolate lovers’ bliss, but they definitely do in a pinch.
However, those S’more things are revolting. I wouldn’t pay for anything with rotted marshmallow in it…or even fresh marshmallow. That alone makes 'em nasty. If my kids won’t eat them, then I can understand why they were practically giving them away.
I prefer Belgian chocolate (well, of COURSE) but if one can’t afford it most (re: all) the time, then Hershey’s, Nestle’s or if I’m really feeling “frisky” (and affluent) Godiva does just fine. Hey, a fix is a fix.
