Autumn Delights: Hershey's Caramel Apples

I really like the idea of these new Hershey's Caramel Apple filled milk chocolates. Caramel apples constitute the best Autumnal flavor, and the idea of that flavor contained within a solid two-bite piece of milk chocolate is totally enticing. That said, I think these individually-wrapped bonbons disappointed in their execution. I didn't love the apple flavor in the caramel. It was really strong and artificial. I was hoping for a more subtle, warm apple flavor--more like Baked Apple than crisp Granny Smith. Also, the ratio of chocolate to caramel was off. I understand that they needed to make the chocolate shell solid in order to keep the caramel from oozing, but there was not nearly enough caramel to balance out the chocolate. The result? A whole lot of chocolate, strong essence of Apple, but the caramel gets lost in the mix.

Score: 3
