Blue Bunny Chocolate Hazelnut Bunny Snacks

[New for 2018] So you probably remember that Blue Bunny sent over a bunch of free samples. The cinnamon cereal cones were great, but let's break in to the new bunny snacks. I've already picked up the brownie ones on my own, so let's take a crack at....

Blue Bunny Chocolate Hazelnut Bunny Snacks

So my first impression is this: I don't like these. I don't hate hate them (yet), but I did not enjoy my serving and I was half tempted to stop eating until that top layer of chocolate kicked in and balanced things out a little better.

See, I don't really click with chocolate hazelnut in general really, and this treat seems to exacerbate what I don't like about that combo. It's not that it's too strong in the hazelnut department, it's just that there is this really weird flatness to the treat. It's a flavor combo that is there, but not there. I wondered for a moment if I wanted a salty component at first to try and make it pop, but I don't think that would help (but it might).

Back to the chocolate layer that brought a much need chocolate boost to this treat. It's thick enough that in that it's able to try and trick your brain in to thinking you are eating something more akin to a candy bar. Yes, I wish this layer was thicker and covered the entire treat, but like I said, it was enough to make me finish the treat.

Finally thoughts? Hazelnut bits might have helped more if there were more of them, but at least they covered the whole treat unlike the last bunny snacks I tried. The second scoop will decide if I keep the final four treats for myself or try to pawn them off on my coworkers.

On Second Scoop: Lowered expectations can be a good thing because this didn't taste as "flat" today. Deep down I am still waiting for something to happen. You keep taking that next bite hoping the treat will finally pop, but at least I enjoyed it more than yesterday.

Verdict?  needs an x-factor
Buy Again?  not my jam

I really liked these - but I do love chocolate and hazelnut together.
