Along with the regular Milk Chocolate Hershey’s Drops I found, I also saw this “Cookies ‘n’ Creme” variety. This flavor makes sense since they’re based on bars that Hershey’s already has, and the Cookies ‘n’ Creme flavor is one I know many are a fan of. Again with the “No candy shell-No mess” tagline. So strange!
These are the same size as the Milk Chocolate drops. Somewhere between a quarter and a nickel. Here the name “Hershey’s” is printed on with brown letters, which stands out on the white shell. You can also easily see the cookie bits in the white chocolate. Which, I hesitate to call it white chocolate because even though cocoa butter is listed, it’s followed by palm, shea, sunflower and/or safflower oils. That’s a lot of oils in one white chocolate! Granted, since this is Hershey’s it still could be a lot worse.
The flavor starts out very sweet, and you get the notes of the white chocolate which have a strong vanilla and milky flavor. The cookies bits start to protrude as the chocolate melts away. and they have a sweet crunch to them, but no real specific cookie flavor. Just sweet. This tasted just like the bar form.
I liked this a lot more than the normal Milk Chocolate Drops. The Cookies ‘n’ Creme flavor is more unique and makes me want to go back to them. The milk chocolate variety feels too much like a sadder M&M to me.
