Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Almond Eggs

Hershey's Milk Chocolate Almond EggsAlongside the Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Eggs on shelves this year are the new Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Covered Almond Eggs.

They’re not something particularly Easter-themed, as chocolate covered almonds are already rather egg shaped. But they’re still a welcome item, since some chocolate covered nuts sound less sweet than the many other marshmallowy, sugar-crusted and white chocolate items that typify the holiday fare.

They were expensive, as real nut items often are. I picked up this 7.1 ounce bag for $3.29, which is on par with what I’d usually pay for an item from Whole Foods ... yet I bought this at Target.

Hershey's Milk Chocolate Almond Eggs

They look great. Dark and glossy. They varied in size quite a bit, from a peanut all the way up to an almond in the shell. I expected this, because almonds themselves vary.

The chocolate itself is Hershey’s tangy, cheesy, fudgy chocolate ... it’s odd. But it goes well with the almonds, which are well chosen, nicely crunchy and good quality. I ate the whole bag in about two days, so I must have liked them, but I didn’t feel satisfied by any particular element. The chocolate is gritty and has that Hershey’s burp note ... the almonds are good, but the fact that I spent over $3 on less than half a pound of a Hershey’s chocolate product was a little odd.

Hershey’s had a version of these in their Pieces line that had a candy shell which added to the texture experience, but I haven’t see those in stores for a while.

If you’re a lover of the Hershey’s Milk Chocolate with Almond bar and wanted an Easter version, I think these ratios are good.

The allergen warning only says that these may contain traces of peanuts. They are made with soy, dairy and almonds as well. There’s no note on gluten or wheat at all.

  1. I bought these for the hubby then ended up eating more of them than he did.  These are soooooo good!  I like the quality and size of the almond and the chocolate covering is quite generous.  I plan to pick up more since this appears to be an Easter product, but I’d like to see Hershey’s carry it year round!  Do you know if this is sold outside of Easter?

  2. Why can I not find these (Hershey’s Easter Eggs Milk Chocolate with Almonds) in the seasonal isle if my usual store this year? I got addicted years ago and look forward to buying them every year. What happened? Help!

  3. I was thinking the same thing as Michelle!  I’ve stopped by CVS where I originally saw these and can’t find them.  Years ago, Hersheys had a mail order catalog.  I’m thinking about checking that out online.

  4. Ooooo! Just checked out, and they have a chocolate covered almond tin.  I wonder if those are the same as the “eggs”?
