So, the Almond Joy cookies were nice. I loved the York cookies, but haven’t been able to find them again. What I have found are the Hershey’s with Almonds and the Reese’s (finally!).

Can I just say this about the Hershey’s with Almonds? OMIGOD! Awesome. Really. I wasn’t planning on reviewing them so close to the Almond Joy one ... but I wanted to photograph them, and once I opened the package and take a bit for the photo ... eek! They’re soooo good. I wanted to run down the hall and share them with someone else. I didn’t want to share them with someone else! They’re mine! I only have four!

The cookie part is light and crunchy with a good cocoa flavor like the cookie part of an Oreo, but lighter. The creamy chocolate topping has nicely roasted almonds in it. Not a lot of them, but enough for a good nutty flavor and texture. The chocolate is good and sweet and provides a good creamy balance to the slightly salted cookie. I wish they weren’t so hard to find and expensive as cookies go, but then again, I don’t want them in a larger package lest I eat more than four at a time. (I did share one.)

The Reese’s didn’t do much for me. They were peanutty, but lacked a creamy quality that the peanut butter cups have. I still think they’re a solidly good cookie - better than a Nutter Butter if you like chocolate with your peanut cookies.

Ratings: Hershey’s with Almond Cookie - 10 out of 10
Reese’s Cookie - 7 out of 10

    I think the only other 10 I gave out was for the Whoppers Twosomes.

    Seems odd, but I really need to go back and start reviewing stuff that I’ve been loving for years. Then I won’t look like I’m so stingy (or so in favor of Hershey’s products ... I’m really more diverse than that).

  6. Well, it’s not quite your neck of the woods Cybele, but if you can get to the Target on Jefferson in Culver City, they’ve got the Hershey’s with almonds there, in spades, and ON CLEARANCE. Not sure how that’s possible, but they’re like $2.20 a box.

  7. I should point out, that’s the price for the boxed cookies, not for the little four packs (which are .99).

  9. On a recent trip to Minot,ND. I found the almond joy cookies.  They are the best ever, wish I would have bought more, but they don’t seem to be at any other Walmart.
