Review: Hershey's Gold Bar

Hershey's Gold Bar features a candy bar of caramelized creme embedded with pieces of peanuts and pretzels.

They're normally about 89 cents a bar but I received this one courtesy of Hershey's.

Rather than white chocolate, the Gold Bar is made of creme (like the seasonal Candy Cane bar), which is mostly sugar, vegetable oil, and milk. It's good for a sweet, creamy, and salty quality with a mild note of caramel. Texture-wise, it has that same melty mouthfeel.

The combination of chopped peanut and pretzels give the bar a subtle but evenly dispersed crunchiness. Flavor-wise, it's mostly the peanuts that come through with the pretzels supplying the occasional burst of salty with just a touch of that pretzel taste.

The bar is segmented with a bit more variation than previous Hershey's bars (which features three columns of identical rectangles) which serves to make it somewhat more distinctive.

Overall, Hershey's Gold Bar turns out rather nicely. It offers a nice variety of relatively low-key tastes and flavor that balances out well for an enjoyable eating experience.
