Review: Baskin Robbins Cookies & Cream Hard Candy

IMG_3777.jpgI went into this with very low hopes. In fact, I expected to hate these, likely not finishing them like the last Baskin Robbins candy we tried.

But we were pleasantly surprised. The rounded rectangle piece of hard candy is split into a black side and a white side, and they actually work relatively well. The cream flavor takes the lead on this candy, giving way, as it melts, to the odd chocolate/oreo flavor.

Our advice: don't chew these up, let it melt. I have trouble doing this too, I'm a biter, but trust me, the experience is much nicer when the two flavors are melding together. Chewing them up actually changes the whole dynamic for me, it stopped being a cookies and cream taste and turned more chocolate and sugary. And it left a sharp aftertaste that got me in the back of the throat.

The verdict? Better than the soft candies, but still not as awesome as Baskin Robbin's ice cream, so they should think these candies through more.
