Review: Halloween candy from Hershey

Who doesn't love Hershey's? The name itself has been synonymous with chocolate in American vernacular for as long as any of us can remember. Headquartered in Hershey, Pa. and has operations throughout the world and more than 12,000 employees! Who doesn't love home grown businesses! Halloween, Easter, Valentine's Day... any occasion that calls for candy calls for Hershey's. Whether you prefer the classic milk chocolate bar, the nutty Mr. Goodbar, the Reese's peanut butter cup (my personal favorite), or any of the other varieties, it's a part of our culture that we all grew up enjoying.

That's why it's so difficult to write anything about it, really. But when we received some of their great selection to try out, I had to hide it from the family or it would be gone that night! So what can be said? Is it good chocolate? It's Hershey's. Is it a great selection of bars and candies? It's HERSHEY'S. How can one describe something we've all known since we were small children? Needless to say, the package with the 3 different kinds was my favorite, never can get enough of those York Peppermint Patties. The Reese's Peanut Butter Pumpkin was gone that night thanks to the husband who LOVES Reese's. The packaging also was in spirit of the season of Halloween making it more fun to eat!

Rather than try to explain to anybody reading this the simple joy that I'm conveying, I invite you instead to just go have some. Go out and try you favorite, Halloween is next week, and I invite you to do more than just dress up and take the kids out and go through the motions. I invite you to stop for a moment. After a little trick-or-treating, or while sitting at your home giving away candy to the neighborhood kids, just take a break and enjoy your favorite chocolate from the inevitably nearby stash. Pick your one favorite, and take a minute to stop and enjoy. It's that simple. It's Hershey's.
