Hershey’s Whatchamacallit

001I kept seeing the Whatchamacallit so thought it was time to review it. Is the name great or is it unbelievably stupid? Well I’m still not entirely sure! It’s quite true that people do frequently use ‘whatchamacallit’ as a noun. And Hershey’s decision to bring out a follow up bar (which has now gone to Chocolate Heaven with the other deceased bars like the Fuse and Champagne Crunchie) called the Thingamajig was equally clever/horrific. You can’t deny it’s catchy though. Because even when you forget the Whatchamacallit bar, you end up using the bar’s name trying to remember the bar’s name. It’s brilliant- like a beer called beer or a cheese called cheese…you just can’t forget it.

Reese’s White Peanut Butter Cups

I never know quite what to think about Reese’s peanut butter stuff. Sometimes it is really enjoyable, but it can be unpleasantly greasy and overly sweet too. There isn’t much consistency from Hershey across the Reese’s product range, meaning that every bar A)has the potential to be great and B) has the potential to be god awful. Which is exciting in a way! Today, I’ve got the white chocolate version of their famous peanut butter cups.

Hershey’s Payday:

Everybody loves payday. You get your hard earned money to go and spend on whatever you choose. But the question from today’s review is does everybody love a Payday bar? Hershey’s unusually named product is a U.S import, and it set me back about £1.20 I think. Twice what you’d pay for a British bar admittedly but- when you remember that this has travelled well over 3,000 miles from the States over the Atlantic Ocean to England- not exactly terrible value for money either I suppose.

Hershey’s Pumpkin Spice Kisses

I’ve said on here before how much I love getting free stuff to try. In fact I think everybody loves a good freebie! The old saying goes ‘money won is a lot sweeter than money earned’ and I guess that is pretty much the case here…except it’s a slightly less dignified and refined sounding ‘free sweets are a lot sweeter than sweets bought’. (Not literally sweeter you’ll understand!) Well, after that little ramble, I’l get onto the review. You’ll have read how many of my reviews have been on foreign import products from Cybercandy. Well, after spending about half of my life’s savings in their Covent Garden store up until now, they (kindly, and out of the blue) have rewarded my loyalty and sent me something to sample. Horray!

Hershey’s Take 5

I haven’t reviewed a U.S import bar for quite some time, so I swung by at CyberCandy last time I was in London to pick up something exciting. On top of a few gifts for others (my little brother is hooked on energy drinks at the moment and loves their section of ‘heart attack in a can’ caffeine drinks!) I found myself being up sold to. Now, that’s pretty rare. Because I’ve worked in sales before, I’m normally very alert to being sold stuff that I didn’t intend to buy originally. However after a brief interchange with the two ladies in the Covent Garden based shop and I was leaving with a new chocolate bar. Namely Hershey’s Take 5 bar.


Reese’s Nutrageous

I love winning stuff. I don’t want to bombard you with old sayings and clichés, but I was raised with that whole ‘honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay’ message. However, as you grow up, you realise more and more that ‘money won is sweeter than money earned’.  Anyway, I digress- the reason I mention winning stuff is because today’s review is of a product that I won via twitter. I hate the twitter craze of ‘Retweet to enter our competition’ but, suspiciously after winning exactly that type of competition… I’ve suddenly become more tolerant of it!


Hershey’s Reese’s Whoppers

I picked these up from Cyber Candy’s Covent Garden store last week. Whoppers are an American candy very similar to Maltesers- a malt middle surrounded in milk chocolate. These are the Reese’s peanut butter variety- so these Reese’s Whoppers from Hershey’s were a malt middle with a coating of what was described on the box as ‘peanut butter flavoured’ covering.
