Hershey's Mocha Almond

That Hershey will eventually do a permanent coffee-themed choc bar seems inevitable. It keeps dabbling w/ the flavor in ltd editions (all lovingly documented on NYCE): The revered coffee Kit Kat, the luscious Hershey’s caramel cappuccino bar, and this, Hershey’s mocha almond, a coffee-flavored choc bar w/ chopped almonds. Like its mocha-esque peers, this has a potent long-lingering coffee flavor. Meanwhile, hey look, factoids: In 2004, nearly 1,000 new candy items were intro'd - 20% of all new food prods, sez the Natl Confectioners Assoc. These all moved from the jrs to the big-leagues: Reese's Big Cup, Reese’s white choc, white choc kit kat, Snickers almond, and most recently M&M Mega peanuts.

I'M NOT "ALLOWED" TO EAT ANY OF THIS CHOCOLATE STUFF. HOW ABOUT A BONE REVIEW EVERY ONCE IN AWHILE, FOR CHRIST'S SAKE.

Always enjoy reading about anything with nuts. I applaud the way these coffee-flavored goodies fulfill your mission of your blog. But is Hershey the only guy putting out new stuff?

The pieces of chocolate look like they're coming right out of the wrapper! (in the photo)

Maybe McDonald's is not the sole blame for Americans getting fatter.

I can eat chocolate. Louisiana dogs are tougher than twisted dogs.

Didn't these used to be called vienna sausages?
