This is one of the very few Hershey's bars you can buy here in the UK, though as far as I am aware, packaging aside it is no different to its US equivalent. I did some further research and have actually found that currently this bar is out of distribution in the US at present, and is only available in Europe and Canada :S rather puzzling to say the least.
The bar came in a standard 40g serving. The bar divided up easily into ten handy chunks as you can see above. Upon opening the bar I did not get anything more than small sweet chocolate aroma that you would expect from opening any sort of chocolate bar - not slight smell of nuttyness; never a good sign.
The bar describes itself as 'creamy milk chocolate with Almonds' - and upon tasting the bar you could tell it was certainly different from your standard Hershey's chocolate. Although I understand standard Hershey's chocolate isn’t to everyone’s taste, unfortunately the different type they use in this bar is pretty poor. The chocolate is actually rather flavourless which is really quite a stark contrast to the uniqueness you normally experience in terms of taste with Hershey's. I would personally much prefer the standard Hershey's milk chocolate rather than this 'creamy' variant.
Moving onto the almonds in the bar I must unfortunately report these were also rather a disappointment. The almonds offered very little aside from a light crunch, and similar to the chocolate offered next to nothing in taste. Like most chocolate bars with almonds I cant help but feel it would have been more suitable using the more unique tasting hazelnuts.
Overall a bar you could certainly miss out on - it offers little in terms of strong flavours and it has to be said by Hershey's high standards this is rather poor.
