I grew up with Hershey's Hot Fudge Sauce in the yellow can. I have eaten and enjoyed a number of Hot Fudge sundaes thanks to that great stuff. It was glorious, thick and fudgy. I saw this new product in the jars at the supermarket, it was on sale, so I bought two. Huge mistake. After one horrible sundae, I threw them both out. No one in my household would touch it.
Recommend this product?
I don't know what the folks at Hershey's were thinking with this product. It's ghastly -- no chocolate flavor, really, close your eyes and taste it -- if you didn't already now what it was supposed to be, you'd never guess.
And the texture. Erg. It's like mucous, just horrible.
Their old Hershey's Hot Fudge was orgasmic -- all chocolate, thick, spreadable, so you had to warm it for it to be pourable. Just like the sauce in Hot Fudge Sundaes at a good restaurant.
Yes, this version is pourable, but so is motor oil.
What happened to the good stuff.
