Almond Joy pina colada


shoutouts to the awesome snackspot.org.uk for this image

Almond Joy vs. Mounds is a torrid debate, and now Hershey’s is muddying the waters w/ three Almond Joy ltd editions and-or special flavors. (And btw, the Hershey’s lady said these are all new, but two may have been intro’d on a ltd sked last year. Pls do not shoot the messenger. Thank you.) One is aimed at the chocolate camp; the other two are fruity. Almond Joy chocolate-chocolate has the choc coating you-know-and-love but the coconut filling is chocolatey, too. (Had this mths ago loved it never saw it again.) The other two have white-choc coatings: Almond Joy pina colada, with a pineapply coconut; and newest-of-all, Almond Joy key lime, with a limey coconut. No first-hand testimony is available on these two; some say the fruity flavoring tastes fake. But it’s still clever since there’s only so many ways to spin off an almond joy.

If Hershey comes up with a 70-proof margarita version, it has my attention. Until then, stop dickin' with it.

only if you take your eggs sunny side up. in my younger, short-order-cook days, i was known to have them "over light" (but you need a special "grill dome" for that). now i'm more of a scrambled type. meanwhile, bacon or sausage, what'll it be

Oh, I enjoy almonds. I just thought I'd offer to share my nuts to whoever has a mound.

almonds are my fave nuts, but i still prefer mounds to almond joy because the chocolate is darker and less sweet. and white chocolate, with or without fruit flavoring, is just a bad idea.

tg: was just rereading mimi sheraton's biography/cookbook, which is called something like From My Mother's Kitchen. Anyway, you should get it and read her description of how she fries eggs. sunny side up, but she also peels the white membrane from the top of the egg yolks and pushes it to the edges, which she likes brown and frazzled. can you do them like that? and I'll have a thick, salty ham steak please, none of that tinned stuff. a bloody mary would be good, too.

Arthur. I bought a package of pina colada almond joys on my way back to Texas from the east coast there at the factory store in pa, needless to say they did not make it home. The best almond joys i have ever tasted.
