When I first read Casey’s post on buying chocolate directly from the Hershey’s Factory, I was skeptical. Back in 2015, they were doing a run of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Casey had this to say:
Though Reese’s cups are not my favorite candy (that would probably be Kit Kat or a Cadbury’s Dairy Milk bar), I do quite like them. Even as a non-connoisseur, I can assure you that the fresh from the factory Reese’s taste noticeably better. The chocolate is obviously fresher, the peanut butter better.
This year, they did a run of Kit Kat, and I just couldn’t stand idly by, and not try it. Oh my… Casey was right. The taste is so much better. Watch the video, but don’t take my word for it. Next time you can pre-order from the factory, don’t miss your chance.
