Hershey’s Nuggets Double Chocolate

Hershey's Double Chocolate NuggetsHershey’s has an expansive line of individually wrapped chocolate pieces: Kisses, Miniatures and the Nuggets line.

This new product for the Nuggets line is called Double Chocolate Nuggets:

Hershey’s gives you the best of both worlds with Double Chocolate Nuggets. It’s the perfect combination of Hershey’s Extra Creamy Milk Chocolate and Special Dark Mildly Sweet Chocolate, giving you a delicious taste experience.

Double Chocolate Nuggets

I’ve mentioned before that I actually like the nugget format. I like a deep bite, especially for a layered product or one that has inclusions (which is why I thought those Cookies ‘n’ Mint Nuggets were so great).

These little blocks have a distinct scent - it’s both the sweet cocoa smell of the Special Dark and the tangy milk chocolate that made Hershey’s famous.

Biting into it right side up I got the slightly chalky taste of the Special Dark first, which has a dry and mellow chocolate bite to it but a thin & watery melt. Then the “extra creamy” milky chocolate, which has a yogurty dairy flavor that give it more of a fudge taste than a deep milk chocolate note. (I really don’t get how this can be considered extra creamy.)

The effect of it all isn’t good nor bad, it just is. I can’t say that I’ve longed for a combination product before, so it’s not like I was anticipating this.

  1. I might have to try this.  I always liked eating Special Dark miniatures followed by the Hershey bar or Mr. Goodbars minis.

  3. I’m not a big fan of dark chocolate but it certainly looks delicious.  Double the chocolate and it gets better.

  4. I just got back from a trip to Hershey, PA, and was fortunate enough to get a bag of these delights from Chocolate World… I must say, myself, family, and friends are in LOVE with these little bites of heaven. We can’t wait for them to distribute them across the country. :D

  6. Many years ago they did these (or at least a similar product) as a “limited edition”.
    I don’t remember if they were just milk chocolate and dark chocolate, or if it was extra-creamy and extra dark at the time.  However, I loved them very much then and I just found them last night and am enjoying them right now.

    I love the combination of the two flavors hitting my tongue at different times, and the different notes they hit too… the bite of the bitter dark and the soothing, mellow cream that doesn’t let that bitterness linger.

  7. This is the BEST piece of chocolate that Hershey has EVER made.

    The only reason why I am on the Internet right now is because the drug stores in my area have stopped selling it. 

    They got me addicted and now they want to cut me off.

  8. These are my favorite chocolate-not too sweet, not too bitter…and I, too, am addicted and going through withdrawls.  A plain milk chocolate nugget will no longer suffice. They just don’t melt in your mouth the same way, nor do they have that great combination of dark and milk chocolate taste.

    Like Ron B, I’m searching for areas here to purchase them.  Both my local WalMart and Target stores have discontinued this flavor nugget.  I know sales for them are good, because we don’t go in the stores without buying a few bags for home and the office.
