An open letter to Hershey's [Oct. 25th, 2011|03:45 pm]

So I bought bags of candy with Reese's for Halloween, thinking I'd keep the Reese's and give out the rest. I had plenty of candy, but I wanted holiday Reese's, and there isn't a bag with just the pumpkins. But there were barely any Reese's in my bag. Few enough for me to count up all 61 of them.

I don't think 2 off is important. I mean, I'm pretty sure most foods are a few off the amount listed. But 63 is a weird number. I have no idea why you chose to put 63 pieces of candy in each bag. But I'm okay with only getting 61.

However, I'm not happy with the contents of the bag.

19 Milk Duds
21 Hershey's bars
7 York bats
8 Mr. Goodbar
6 Reese's

I paid $7 for this bag. That's like, over a dollar per Reese's pumpkin. But I bought 2 bags at once.

19 Milk Duds
23 Hershey's bars
7 York bats
4 Mr. Goodbar
10 Reese's

This one has more Reeses, and I'm sorta okay with that I guess. It's a bit better proportioned. What I don't get is why it's the top listed candy, the bag matches the colour scheme of the individual Reese's pumpkins wrappers, and why you insist on giving me so many Hershey's bars.

I'm going to be honest, your chocolate is horrible. It's unbelievably bad. I'd really consider eating mud shaped into bar form before eating a Hershey's bar. The smell alone literally makes me physically ill. For over 20 years, I thought I hated chocolate, but it was because most chocolate was Hershey's. However, the magical peanutty goodness inside Reese's is amazing enough to trump the ridiculously bad chocolate. And holiday Reese's seem to have less chocolate. I tend to buy several bags and eat them slowly until the next holiday, where I can get more Reeses with less chocolate. But, I can't find a bag of just Reese's pumpkins. And I want the bag with just Reese's pumpkins. But I got a 61 piece bag with 6 of them in it.  Why would you do that?

I'm going to be honest with you. I haven't had any chocolate since forever... :V

Had Hershey really degenerated?
