I came across these Dove Cookies and Creme chocolates by accident while searching out the Extra Root Beer gum. I was in Target and just checked the candy asile to see if the gum was there, and it was, but I also found these. I was excited to see these Dove Cookies and Creme candies because I love white chocolate. I haven’t seen any white chocolate offerings from Dove since the peppermint chocolates that they sell around Christmas. Excited with my find I grabbed a few bags, as they were on sale, and took my treasures home.
I remember when Dove chocolate hit the market back in the 1990s (when they had wrappers that looked like this). Dove has done really well with moving from just the candy bars to a selection of bagged chocolates in different flavors. They have a large selection of different types of chocolate available now, and this Cookies and Creme flavor is one of their newest.
Opening the bag, the chocolate pieces all have a black and white design on the wrappers. They are undone easily and each interior has a inspiration message. The one I had for this review read “Rick big. Win big”. Inspiring indeed.
The chocolates are a nice creamy off white color, as good white chocolate should be. The chunks of cookie are easily seen in the chocolate. They are large and give it a real “cookies and cream” appearance. The chocolate has a faint aroma, but that of cocoa butter as white chocolate should smell.
The flavor starts off extremely creamy, with nice fatty notes of cocoa butter and a subtle notes of chocolate and vanilla. The cookie pieces are delightfully crunchy, but they have no real flavor from what I can tell. Together you get this wonderful creamy and crunchy contrast. You get the flavors of nice white chocolate accented with the cookie bits. They’re fun to eat, and the fact that they’re in single pieces makes it easy to ration them. Even though I admit I’ve eaten more than anticipated on more than one occasion.
I really enjoyed this candy, and I’ve been recommending them to my friends who enjoy the Hershey’s Cookie’n'Creme bar. “Why?” do you ask, well, it’s because they are made with better ingredients than the Hershey’s version (but they are also more expensive). In this case you pay for quality. I commend Dove for these, and I hope they will stick around for a long time.
