The New Hershey’s Milk Chocolate with Almond Pieces {Giveaway}

There are very few reviews that I get more excited about than chocolate.  I mean, how can you turn down an opportunity to try the latest chocolate products (especially when they are from Hershey’s), right?  Last year, I had the opportunity to visit Hershey’s and left with a new love for their chocolate and an even greater respect for the brand.  So, I was thrilled to try out and share with you a sneak peek of what’s coming next!

The Hershey Company is getting ready to introduce a new addition to the Hershey’s Pieces Candies family which will join the already released varieties including Reese’s Pieces, Almond Joy Pieces, York Pieces and Special Dark Chocolate Pieces.  Beginning on December 2nd, you will be able to enjoy the brand new Hershey’s Milk Chocolate with Almonds Pieces!

Each piece contains a whole almond covered in classic Hershey’s Milk Chocolate and coated in a crunchy shell.  End result?  Yummy awesomeness. I was sent two bags to test with my family.  As I do with most reviews, I allowed my family to test first and I put away the other bag for review purposes including pictures and my own merriment.  My husband quickly opened the first bag, gave a few pieces to the open hands of my daughters and I and finally sampled some himself.  They were immediately a huge hit.  I loved that each piece contained a whole almond making them quite satisfying. Because the pieces come in a resealable bag, you can easily close them up, move on, and revisit for another handful (or two).

Without my knowledge and almost by magic, the bag was empty in the first two days….how’d that happen?  Fortunately, I had bag number two safely hidden in the pantry ready for the review.  In a phenomenon that can only be described as tiny little elves, bag number two mysteriously disappeared.  My family will not fess up, but I have a sneaky suspicion that the magical elves are named Lily, Aubrie and Randy.  So, as much as I would love to show you a picture….I have none.  But, I can tell you that my family loved them so much that BOTH bags were gone in less than a week.
