Hershey's Cookies 'N' Mint Review

Hey everyone!

Welcome to a brand new blog post! I thought that today, I would talk to you all about something that I found whilst I was doing my essential shopping trip.

I was in Home Bargains, getting some thing that I needed for the week and I saw something that caught my eye. I went up to see what it was and saw that it was a Hershey's Cookies and Mint bar. I had never seen them before and thought to myself, that I had to get one because I love anything that contains Mint, so I did!

First of all, I mainly got it because the packaging drew me in and I saw the word Mint, but I didn't;t realise that it was a White Chocolate based product. I'm very particular when it comes to White Chocolate products. I'm not sure why, but I just am. When you bite into a piece of the bar, you instantly get a kick of marvellous Mint. The Mint alone isn't too strong but is still noticeable. I know that Mint based products have a very reminiscent note of Toothpaste to them, but in my opinion, this bar did not.

As I mentioned at the beginning, I'm not the biggest fan of White Chocolate. I have to be in one of those moods to enjoy it otherwise I don't really want to eat it. The White Chocolate cut through some of the Mint flavour which ensured that Mint flavour within the bar wasn't too strong but my main problem with this, is that the Mint and White Chocolate combined together gave the bar a peculiar aftertaste. I don't know how to fully explain it, but in my opinion, the bar had a sort of sour aftertaste?  It's not an overwhelming aftertaste but it was enough to make me wonder what was causing it.

I loved the texture of this bar. I loved the contrast between the smooth creamy chocolate and the nubbly pieces of milk chocolate based cookies. I loved eating a piece of this product and then being surprised every time my mouth found a piece of Cookie. If you have ever tried the Mint Dairy Milk and Oreo bar, and loved the texture of the interior of the bar, then you will love this. Imagine that but with more crunch and less cream.

Would I buy this product again? Probably. Would I go out of my way to buy it? Probably not, but if I was in a supermarket and I saw it then I would pick it up. Would I suggest this bar to others? Hell yeah, if you love White Chocolate and Mint then you will love this!

Have you tried this bar before? Let me know down below!
