The peanut butter flavor in Dove’s new candy dominates over the chocolate.
|“A special moment deserves a special chocolate,” states the PROMISES candy wrapper we’ve just plucked from the bag of Dove’s new Peanut Butter Milk Chocolate bite-sized candies. That special moment is now. There were also two special moments a few minutes ago, and we have a feeling we’ll be looking for excuses to have special moments all day—or as long as our bag of peanut butter chocolates lasts. (There is also a 3.5-ounce chocolate bar, and both are available in dark chocolate as well as milk chocolate. PB follows Dove Caramel PROMISES, with a creamy caramel center)
We’ve always been a fan of Dove chocolates, and especially love nibbling on their dark chocolate bites as a light, yet oh-so-satisfying dessert after dinner. It’s also the perfect accompaniment to a coffee break, or a low-calorie sweet treat whenever you need one (55 calories for two pieces).
So it was no surprise that there was a mad dash in THE NIBBLE offices to try the new flavor. The candies have just enough smooth chocolate to encase the creamy, peanut butter middle, which makes them different from that other popular brand of chocolate-covered PB candy. There, you taste more chocolate than PB. Here, the PB flavor soars.
|Each individual piece and bar also comes with an encouraging PROMISE message inside the wrapper, urging us to feel good about ourselves, expand our horizons or just plain enjoy life. We, however, need no inspiration beyond spying a piece of orange-foil-wrapped chocolate still in the bag.
By the way, if you have an upcoming special occasion—birthday party, shower or anything where the attendees like to eat chocolate—Dove will personalize the message inside the wrapper for you. Visit MyDoveChocolate.com.
