Hershey’s Fairly Odd Berry Syrup

The official item for today is Hershey’s Fairly Odd Berry Syrup, a ltd-edit bundle o'sugar promoting some kid flick (redux the green-tinted syrup, vintage ’03, promoting Hulk). Hershey’s was unable to say exactly what berry it is; "I just have 'berry-flavored choc syrup'," droned the customer-service rep. The ingredients (sugar, corn syrup, water, citric acid, etc) tell ya nuthin; But who cares: researching Fairly Odd Berry unearthed another much-more important flavor. Hershey's Whoppers Malt Syrup! Not seen locally, yet released back in ’99. Who knew? Other Hershey syrup flavors incl. choc w/ calcium, special dark, & strawb.

1) Your bundle o' sugar link doesn't work.
2) This sounds nasty with a capital NAS.
3) RE: Malted milk see #2.

That is all.

Glad for your sake that they have a malt syrup, but isn't it rather surprising that there is no peanut-butter or caramel-flavored syrup? Those seem to be the popular trends.

Since it is limited edition, will you be able to buy it at 7-Eleven?

I LOVE Chocolate with Calcium! The chalk provides that "pleasurable grit" you were mentioning yesterday, TG.

Actually, tonight I had vichyssoise tonight and thought, "That's the sort of pleaurable grit TG was talking about."

the other night i had a creme brulee with the sugar only half dissolved. that is NOT pleasurable grit.
