Blue Monday Wrapper

I have a big passion for retro/classic candies. I think the biggest reason, aside from the fact that they’re usually delicious, is that they’re a marriage between two of some of my favorite things: food and history. So when I heard about the very retro/regional bar The Blue Monday, hailing from Kentucky, you bet I was super eager to get my hands on one. It took me a few years to finally get around to ordering myself some on the internet, but it was well worth the wait.

The package design is very classic, and reminds me of my favorite candy bar of all time: the Zero bar. It’s a bright silver wrapper with blue writing on it. The specific bars I got here have the 135th Kentucky Derby date and location on it. Just goes to show what a local candy this is!

The whole bar clocks in at 1 oz and 130 calories, which is a nice size for an afternoon snack. The ingredients are simple: sugar, water, cream, and bittersweet chocolate. Very straightforward and honest.

The bar is the size of a credit card and looks like a brick with a nice rippling texture from the chocolate enrobing. It smells wonderfully chocolatey with notes of sweetness, cream, cocoa and coconut.

 

Blue Monday Bar

My much anticipated first bite is immediately a surprise to me, as it’s very soft. It looks so hard and dense so I was expecting the center to be similar to taffy. Instead it’s very solid, very sweet, and immediately soft and airy on my tongue. It dissolves quickly and cleanly with no slick or greasy feel. The inside is actually a type of traditional cream pull candy, which is a more airy and light taffy. So in a way, my expectations were right.

The flavor is sweet, lightly milky and similar to marshmallows minus the vanilla. The chocolate is rich and solid in flavor with a pleasant creaminess. Very classic and old fashioned tasting, and I’m immediately smitten with it.

I’m so happy I finally gave this bar a try, and even though it wasn’t exactly what I was expecting (which, to be totally fair, I had no idea what to expect) it turned out to be something better. Just goes to show there’s a reason these bars are still made today!

  1. I live in KY and these are just about my favorite candy bar. It’s good to see someone reviewing them outside the state. I send them to my out of state friends to clue them in on the wonders of the Blue Monday. As someone who is currently on a medically mandated diet, it’s also a good “guilty treat” at only 130 calories. The bar is so rich that one is certainly plenty to satisfy.

  3. Lots of specialists claim that home loans help a lot of people to live the way they want, just because they are able to feel free to buy necessary things. Moreover, banks offer sba loan for different classes of people.
