Hershey's Bliss- Raspberry Meltaway Centers
From what I have been able to tell this particular type of Bliss is like the Loch Ness Monster of the Bliss line
It was long fabled to exist but it took forever to actually find. I am not sure if the actual Loch Ness Monster really exists but I have actually eaten the Raspberry Bliss so I can say that they are real.
I have not always been kind to Hershey's and the Bliss line in particular has not been on my favorites list. Prepare to be shocked but I actually liked the Raspberry Bliss!
Yes, the chocolate is still on the sweet side but they did perfect the melt so that it is smooth and creamy. Let's be honest, it is at the end of the day just Hershey's chocolate and there is only so much that can be said about it.
The raspberry creme center is smooth and fluffy and pairs with the milk chocolate really well. The flavor of the creme is clearly in artificial raspberry but it is close enough that you can still tell that there is a trace of real raspberry in there somewhere.
For a mass market chocolate it is pretty good. Admittedly the bag is long gone at Gigi's house. If you are able to find a bag give them a try!
