Taste test: This thin candy bar had a creamy off-white color generally, with some ghostly orange shadows, presumably from the candy bits embedded inside, showing through the top and bottom surfaces. The bar was arranged into a 4x3 section grid, bearing the Hershey's name atop each section, just like a regular Hershey's milk chocolate bar.

I bit in to find that the interior had a soft feel, and in the bit-off cross-section, I could see not just orange bits, but yellow ones as well, which makes sense as far as matching candy corn. (Looking at the surfaces after the fact, I could see yellow shadows too, but they were very subtle against the surface color.)

Those orange and yellow bits were about the size of your standard ice cream sprinkles. I kind of expected some crunch from the bits, or at least a different texture from the rest of the bar, but the base bar and the candy bits all seemed to be one uniform texture.

The bar really did taste a lot like candy corn, though with a different texture entirely. Candy corn isn't exactly the best thing to eat, so that flavor's not necessarily a good thing, but we do give credit to Hershey's for matching the flavor quite well.

Smell test: Kind of like candy corn and white chocolate, on the sweet side.

From the package: “Candy corn creme with candy bits” ... “naturally and artificially flavored”
