I am a big fan of American food, drinks, sweets etc and as I live near a local USA Candy store, I am lucky enough to get to try a lot of these sweets etc, but can not eat them very often as I do not want to put on weight or anything. Due to this fact, there is a mass load of American produce in my kitchen which is slowly, and surely getting worked through, but I do end up adding to it a lot lol.
One of the latest things I have tried, and fallen in love with, is the new Hershey Drops. Hershey is the biggest brand of chocolate in America, and they make a MASSIVE range of different chocolates and sweets.
Hershey drops are basically the American version of Galaxy Counters. They are small, round pieces of chocolate, with no candy shell, so they literally are just drops of chocolate. They are made from Hersheys Milk Chocolate, and there is also a white chocolate version of these, although I have not tried them yet. The white chocolate one is the Hersheys famous Cookies and Creme, which is white chocolate with oreo pieces.
These drops come in a couple of different sizes, but the bag I bought of them was the "king size" bag, which basically had a few more drops in it rather than the smaller amount you would get in the standard bag. You can also get these in a share bag, which has about 3 times the amount in it compared to the smaller bag.
I have tried Hersheys chocolate before, and I found it to be really nice, so I was expecting these to taste the same, just in a different size. I was right, and these did taste the same and really nice. They are not too sweet, so they do not make me feel sick, and they are not so bland that you do not want any more. They have a nice warm texture to them, and are really smooth.
The chocolate is nice and thick, creamy and yummy, and I demolished the bag pretty quickly! In regards to the taste and texture of the chocolate, I have nothing bad to say. Sadly though, like all chocolate in this world, it is bad for you and the nutritional information is as follows:

Once in a while, these are ideal as a treat, but they are not something that should be eaten very often. If you are unable to get to an American store very often, these can be bought online at www.americansweets.co.uk and they will cost you around £1.29 for the kingsize bag.
I give these drops a 4 out of 5, not due to the taste, but because of the fat and calories. Recommended.
Summary: A great treat from America
