It took me a few years to catch on that there were other flavor varieties of the Cow Tail out on the market. Like the hard to find Charleston Chews, Cow Tails also have a chocolate and strawberry variants on store shelves. The trick is finding them.
I don’t recall exactly where it when it was that I first found the chocolate Cow Tail, but I assure you I was plenty excited. I really didn’t know what to expect from it when I piled them of them on the cashier’s counter top for purchase. Would the creme on the inside be chocolate? The outside? Would it be really chocolatey? Or more bland like a Tootsie roll? I couldn’t wait to find out.
Ah ha! Upon opening the wrapper I see that it’s the caramel outside that carries the chocolate flavor. It has the same delicious creme center, and it gives a a nice vanilla flavor to balance the chocolate. The chocolate exterior is flavorful (yes, there’s really chocolate in there) and it’s oddly satisfying. I appreciate how it’s a good authentic chocolate flavor, although it’s mild. The caramel still has that “wheaty” essence to it, and has that nice chew and sugary coating on it. It still feels faithful to the original Cow Tail formula.
I liked it just as much as the original vanilla variety, and I stock up whenever I happen to come across them.
