The Hershey's Cookies and cream bar is an anomaly in the world of white chocolate. I have mixed feelings about white chocolate, and I'm keenly aware of the debate that white chocolate is not actually chocolate. Every time I post anything online that references white chocolate, I get a lot of comments from either side of the fence. My opinions on white chocolate are simple, I believe that white chocolate is in fact chocolate, both technically and sociologically. We call it chocolate, and it does contain elements from the cocoa plant. I will say that personally white chocolate is my least favorite of the chocolate varieties, but my opinion may not matter to some of you as milk, not dark, chocolate is my favorite.
So where does this bar change things? It has to do with the fact that it's one of my favorite white chocolate bars. In fact, it might be one of my favorite chocolate bars, or at the very least in my top 50 (trust me that's a big honour). I'm not sure why this bar works. It could be the cookie bits and the way they work with the white chocolate, or it could be the white chocolate itself. For me this bar seems much creamier than most white chocolates. This creaminess makes this bar much more satisfying than most other white chocolates.
This bar is so tasty that for the longest time I was convinced that it wasn't even white chocolate. It wasn't until I read the label and found out the truth, it actually says that it’s white chocolate. Before then I just thought it was some kind of super white chocolate like substance, different than white chocolate in taste and texture, with the colour being the only similarity.
