Dove introduced these dark chocolate and cherry swirl heart promises:
I love the way they look:
I wish I liked the taste as much as their cool apprearance. Too much cherry for me. I still think the Hershey's Cherry Cordial Kisses do this combo best.
And while I think the messages in the wrappers could be better, at least Martha Stewart is out of the picture. I just don't want that felon in my candy.
Woohoo! My freinds at Just Born haven't let us down! Milk chocolate and dark chocolate covered Peeps!
You know how I like to compare. Before now, my favorite chocolate covered marshmallow heart was from Hershey (hate the evil Russell Stover):
I don't know what happened to the Hershey heart, but it looks like it had a very bad night:
Look at what happened when I autopsied the Peep hearts! Holy cow - this color has never before been seen without the help of a black light (those of you under the age of 35 probably don't even know what that is). It's raspberry marshmallow - possibly from the planet Zenon.
And here's the autopsied Hershey Heart:
I was amazed by these (I thought they would be horrible) - from Tootsie, maker of Junior Mints - raspberry cremes:
I popped the poor autopsy subject picture here into my mouth, honestly expecting them to suck. I have to tell you, they are great! A lot of it is that awesome size (totally poppable) and the chocolate shell/creamy filling combo that makes the Junior Mint so addictive. I find these impossible to stop eating. Go Tootsie Roll!
Thanks for reading! I hope all of you have a fantastic Valentine's Day - regardless of the state of your love life. I think it's a great day to celebrate our love affair with chocolate and with life - something that will never change! Love to you all!!
