Oh Great! Thanks Hershey’s… These Chocolate Almond Pieces Are Addicting

My UPS guy is practically part of my family. He comes to my house every single day (sometimes TWICE A DAY) and even my kids know him by his first name. Today, he delivered a package that was cold and that doesn’t happen very often. I was very, very curious.

I walked to the kitchen and opened it up. This is what I found. Several bags of Hershey’s Milk Chocolate with Almond pieces. ANNA! You are killing me!

Confession time – I don’t eat a lot of chocolate. When I was in high school, my friend worked at a gourmet chocolate store. He would bring me home BOXES and BOXES of these super rich and super expensive treats trying to help me find a flavor that I liked. And I liked NONE.

It angered him as a chocolate lover. I’m pretty sure our friendship ended over those trials. 🙂

But come on! I’m not going to eat something I don’t like, right?  One of the only types of chocolate I buy is from Hershey’s. Their bars with almonds ARE MY FAVORITE. Yes, I also like kisses and occasionally – if I’m feeling bold – I will grab a handful of Reese’s Pieces, but 9 times out of 10 it’s those almond bars.

And when I eat those almond bars, my favorite pieces are the ones with the almonds in them. I’m not really a sweets person but when that combo is in my mouth, I am filled with BLISS.

This morning, I find out that I can buy a bag FILLED with almonds dipped in Hershey’s chocolate?  Basically the exact PIECE I WANT from the BARS? What are you telling me? Where the heck have I been?!!!

Here are some other flavors that are available. I want to try the YORK ones next!!

  1. Hershey’s have been known for the great candy bars for years, but now the company has entered the arena of cookies with fantastic results.
