Hebert’s Dark Bananas Foster Chocolate Bar

When I was in CVS yesterday, I decided to take a look at the candy selection.  And stuck somewhere between the Cadbury Cream Eggs and the special edition carmel KitKat were theHeber’ts Fully Loaded bars in some strange flavors (one of the others was Marguerita, I believe?!?).  I picked up the one that looked lease offensive and decided that I should give it a try.  This is how I ended up with a bar called Hebert’s Dark Bananas Foster Chocolate Bar.  Hm.

Now on the front it says "Dark Chocolate with Banana, Cinnamon & Brown Sugar Filling" however in the list of ingredients there is no mention of banana, cinnamon or brown sugar — the filling ingredients are sugar , water, natural and artifical flavor and citric acid.  Hm.

The chocolate did look okay though and the smell when I opened the package was overwhelmingly of chocolate.  The little pillows are cute too — and the individual sections are very important to me, as you may know.  So I broke off one little pillow and popped it in my mouth.  At first you taste the chocolate — not as flavorful or smooth as I would have liked, but not bad.  The layer of chocolate on top is a bit thinner than the bottom and dissolved quite quickly, releasing the bit of banana flavored stuff inside.  It kind of had that artifical banana flavor you get in banana flavored taffy — and I could taste the cinnamon flavor.  As for the brown sugar?  Well, the filling is white — so I don’t know what that’s all about.  It didn’t have any of the molasses flavor of brown sugar as far as I could discern.

All in all, it was okay for me.  I’ll eat the rest of the bar, but I probably wouldn’t buy another one. 

Mine was purchased at CVS and Hebert’s has a website, but I didn’t see anything about these bars there.
