Hershey pretty much puts their name and finger into anything that has chocolate. I don't know how I feel about that, and I'm sure I'll have a better idea after I finish this brownie. The thing that bothers me sometimes is that often these products aren't particularly creative. Hershey is a huge company with people researching candy all over the place. They have a reserve of chocolate larger than anybody else, but all they can do is make basic simple things, things that aren't super creative. I'm probably a little harder on treats like this because unless I really think they're amazing, I often wonder where the great wealth of Hershey is going.

Once again I'm slightly disappointed. Sure it's chewy, and it's kind of chocolaty, but it's pretty dry. It's also so dense that it's not even a cake like thing as much as it's a lesser quality fudge. I know that brownies are supposed to be denser than your average cake, but they can be too dense too.

The chocolate flavour of the cake is also kind of weak. I'm a big fan of super chocolaty brownies and these just don't cut it. It's not that this treat is horrible or anything, I just expect more from one of the largest candy companies in the world.
