The first question/concern I had about these Planets candies was answered on the third bite. The question was, how in the world would you be able to tell which planet is filled with which filling? There are three kind of chocolate covered planets available in this bag, one is chewy, one is soft, and one is crunchy. After opening the bag, I quickly realised that there are also three different sizes of chocolate blobs in this bag. So, after a quick bite of each size, I realised the pattern. Yay, for me, not so much for the treat.
I only say that it's not good for the treat because frankly I think it could have used a little suspense with each bite. It might be kind of fun to have no idea what kind of Planet you where about to bite into. I got a little of this suspense at the beginning with the first three (actually two) and it was fun, but the minute I figured out the system, I was disappointed.
The three different
textures are OK as far as taste and texture go. The crunchy is a sort of
honeycomb/crunchy nougat treat, sort of like astronaut ice cream. The chewy
is filled with caramel. And the soft is filled with the same kind of nougat
one might find in a Mars bar. These are all pretty common fillings in chocolate
treats, so you know that they’ll all work fairly well.
This is a pretty good treat, it could be better if they made each one the same size, but these Planets are still pretty good.
