This snack review has Chocolate Jell-O Pudding Cups, a comparison and difference between Hershey’s Symphony and Almond Toffee Bars to regular Hershey Bars, Cocoa Pebbles Milk Chocolate ‘N Cereal Bites, and Rice Krispies Treats Double Chocolatey Chunk. While my favorites were the Symphony bars, I was still expecting more from them. In addition, the Cocoa Pebbles Bites were a complete letdown but still decent.


Milk Chocolate Jell-O Pudding Cups

Score: 6 / 10

Front package of Milk Chocolate Jell-O Pudding Cups.

Genuinely no different in taste and texture to a Hershey’s Chocolate Bar aside from the fact that it’s in a cup form. Although, the inside is just a tad softer.

Released around June 2022. Found at Five Below.


Hershey’s Symphony Extra Creamy Milk Chocolate Bar Vs. Regular

Score (Symphony): 6.5 / 10
Score (Regular): 6 / 10

Package of Hershey's Symphony XL Extra Creamy Milk Chocolate bar.

Honestly, if you blindfolded me and asked if I could tell the difference between a Symphony Bar and a regular Hershey’s Bar, I might fail. The Symphony Bar is extremely close to its counterpart as the differences are very minimal. It’s a tad less bitter and “harsh”, and just a smidge less sweet. It also has alightly more creamier-like taste to it.

Released in 1989 as a more mild, milky version that compared to European chocolate.

Hershey’s Symphony Extra Creamy Milk Chocolate Almonds & Toffee bar

Score: 7 / 10

Package of Hershey's Symphony XL Extra Creamy Milk Chocolate Almonds & Toffee bar.

Like regular Symphony bars but with a little bit of added toffee and almonds. I like how the bar isn’t overloaded with it, it’s very tame and doesn’t overpower anything. It has a small crunch in every bite as well.

Released in 1989 as a more mild, milky version that compared to European chocolate.


Frankford Post Cocoa Pebbles Milk Chocolate ‘N Cereal Bites

Score: 5 / 10

Front box of Frankford Post Cocoa Pebbles Milk Chocolate 'N Cereal Bites.

Each one is individually wrapped and quite annoying to unwrap as they stick to the chocolate. These remind me of those cheap foil wrapped chocolates you buy on Halloween. They aren’t as sweet as Cocoa Pebbles but they are close in flavor, even having a small Krispy crunch in each bite. Basically, a less sweet version of Cocoa Pebbles that’s annoying to eat.

Released August 2021 alongside a Fruity Pebbles version. Exclusive to Five Below.

Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Treats Double Chocolatey Chunk Bar

Score: 6 / 10

Front package of Kellogg's Rice Krispies Treats Double Chocolatey Chunk bar.

Not as sweet as typical Rice Krispy Bars or the other larger Dunk’d ones. These have a semi-sweet chocolate flavor and the chocolate bits aren’t really noticeable. Wish it was a bit more sweet or was Dunk’d in chocolate like some of the others.

I am not sure when these were released. Found at Speedway.
