Taste test: This thin candy bar came in a 4x3 grid of rectangular sections with the Hershey's logo on each one. The bar looked pretty cool, as it was an off-white, creamy color with many bits of red just below the surface — not red and white like a candy cane, it looked good.
I bit in to find a nice mix of white chocolate and peppermint, so again, not quite like a candy cane, but still a good taste. There was a slight crunch upon encountering some of the red bits, but not major one. The peppermint was more dominant in the aftertaste, so it became more candy cane-like then. The big advantage to this over an actual candy cane is that you can eat it much faster, since it's mainly white chocolate that you can easily bit into, and therefore it didn't take forever to suck.
