Adapting one candy from another is very challenging. As the Candy Critic I have to be honest, I don’t really understand why candy companies do this in the first place. From a marketing standpoint I guess there’s a bit of brand recognition, but from a food perspective it goes wrong way too often. Flavours transfer well, and ingredients also transfer well, but making one treat into another doesn’t work well at all, at least most of the time.
What we have here is a prime example of this problem, you take one of my favorite ice cream treats and turn it into a portable candy treat. And what do you get doesn’t work at all. What you get is one of the nastiest products I've ever had to consume. The part that grossed me out the most is the nasty synthetic chocolate flavor. This treat fails on two levels, it not only doesn’t taste like Fudgecicle, but it also doesn’t taste of any kind of decent chocolate either.
If you want a Fudgsicle, go into the freezer case and buy the real thing. Don’t waist your time with this really weak “chocolate” like candy.
