Because...Sometimes you feel like a NUT

Nov 16, 2007

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Coconut, Almonds, Chocolate

Cons:none.

The Bottom Line: If you're feeling nutty, buy an Almond Joy.


I was really happy this Halloween when my son got some Almond Joy candy bars in his bucket. I was happy because he snarls his nose at the sight of anything with any type of nut. He also thinks he doesn't like coconut, even though I'm quite certain he's never even tried it. I figure he thinks it's some type of nut. I don't try to sway him, because he hands his Almond Joys over without me even asking.


Packaging and Price


The Almond Joy comes in a nice blue and white wrapper with the name written on the front. The "O" in Joy is replaced with a picture of a coconut. There are pictures of almonds just below. These candy bars can be found for up to $1. Here lately, Wal-Mart keeps a big bin of candy bars at the register for 33 cents. That's a deal I can't pass up! I grab about 3 every time I hit the line.


Ingredients


Corn Syrup, sugar, coconut, almonds, vegetable oil (palm, shea, sunflower, and/or safflower oil, chocolate, whey (milk), contains 2% or less of nonfat milk, partially hydrogenated vegetable oil (soybean and palm oil), milk fat, cocoa, salt, soy lecithin, natural and artificial flavors, hydrolyzed milk protein, sodium metabisulfate and sulfer dioxide to maintain freshness, and caramel color.


Goodness


The regular size candy bar is about 7-8 inches in length. When you open the package, it contains 2 oval shaped, coconut candy bars that are about a quarter-inch thick, covered in milk chocolate with 2 almonds on top. The first time I tried one of these treats, I imagined that it would be chock full of small pieces of nuts, but I was wrong. The bars are about 2 large bites, and you get a whole almond with each bite as the almonds are placed evenly on top of the coconut under the chocolate. The snack size, or Halloween size consists of 1 small bar with 1 almond on top.


The Last Crumb


Sometimes you feel like a nut. Sometimes you don't. When I'm feeling nutty, I choose an Almond Joy to make me happy. It is made by the Hershey company, and I've never met a Hershey bar I didn't like.
