Yes...this really is my photo of the day ;)
I've actually never seen or even heard of this candy before.
I saw it today while at the grocery store with Addie though,
and I had to buy it.
After all...it's "The candy bar that makes idaho famous!"
And I loved the vintage-style wrapper. Cute.
I'm not a real huge average-candy-bar eater. I love chocolate,
but I like the schmancy types like Scharffenberger a bit more
(although I do go through periodic bouts of peanut M&Ms).
However, I was taken in by the cute wrapper and
the fact that I had no idea what could possibly be in an Idaho Spud.
That's all I could think upon looking at it.
For your sake, I will not tell you what my hubby said it looked like.
But then, he does hate coconut, so maybe he was biased ;)
Opening the inside, I found a fluffy, not-quite-white mound of...something.
It wasn't marshmallow, but by then I was biased
because I don't like candies with marshmallow at all.
I did taste it, though...
I didn't like it.
That's ok, though...what would've been a lifetime of wondering is over!
This same concept recently made me purchase another new candy bar--
the "aerated" version of Hershey's chocolate bar.
Although it doesn't get HOT here by any means,
it had completely melted by the time we got home.
Undeterred, I put it in the freezer and tried it later.
It tasted like regular Hershey's chocolate.
But then, I'm sure all that melting had something to do with it :)
Do you ever try any new foods or drinks just for the novelty of it?
