Hershey's Cacao Reserve Milk Chocolate Truffles
You ever have one of those dates were you just weren't sure if you liked the other person or not?
Yeah, you went out and they didn't completely suck (of course that could have been part of the problem) but it could have been better.
That's how I felt about these truffles.
The flavor is decent. It leans more towards the taste of the Symphony bar rather then the classic Hershey bar or a Hershey Kiss. A little too sweet but that is basically a hallmark of Hershey's chocolate.
Deeply enrobed in the center of the truffle is a fudgy center that reminds me of solid hot chocolate. That part of the truffle is actually quite good. In fact even the after taste it leaves is pleasant. What's also interesting is that it is cool and creamy on your tongue.
What keeps it from being great to me is the waxy texture and melt of the outer shell. If only they could make the outer shell more like the Symphony bar in terms of mouthfeel and melt I might have a new addiction on my hands/hips.
This truffle has made me want to try the dark chocolate version so stayed tuned!
