Annabelle’s Candy Company is a candy maker that I am very fond of. The reason for this is they are a classic candy company, once that has been around since 1950 located in the San Francisco bay area. They make a few classic candy bars, like Look!, Abba Zabba, U-No, and my favorite: Big Hunk. Just to name a few! One of their many candy bars is the Rocky Road bar, which we have here. It’s a hard bar to miss in it’s bright vibrant red package and large lettering.
Rocky Road is described as “Milk Chocolate Coasted Marshmallow with Cashews”, so very much like the Rocky Road ice cream we all know and love. It’s a long rectangular bar, and doesn’t feel heavy at all. It clocks in only at 1.82 oz. The bar smells sweet and of cocoa. With that I felt the need to look at the ingredients, and yes, this chocolate it real. No mockolate here, yay!
So the construction of the Rocky Road is a big marshmallow coated in chocolate with the top sprinkled with little pieces of cashews. The flavor is very delicate. The sweet marshmallow taste nicely of vanilla and is light and airy. The chocolate sticks nicely to the marshmallow, and it has a mild chocolate flavor that compliments it nicely. You don’t taste or feel the texture of the cashews, just you can see the pieces when you look at a bitten section of the bar. The overall flavor is a nice representation of the Rocky Road flavor.
I liked this bar, but it’s not something I’d specifically crave. Marshmallow isn’t my favorite of fillings, I usually go for nougat, caramel or fudge. Still, it’s a tasty, well put together candy bar, and if you’re a big marshmallow/rocky road fan, this bar is a must try.
