I cannot stop eating Dove Chocolate.
Is there anything better worse more torturous than buying Easter candy two weeks early and having to hide it from the kids?
Yes. Receiving a whole bag of new DOVE Milk Chocolate with Peanut Butter that I didn’t have to hide. Because I ate and ate and ate it until the bag was empty. Despite my initial reaction to getting a package of chocolates with MY name on them, I did end up sharing a few pieces with my family, who begged me to try some. I relented. But most of those creamy bad boys ended up in my mouth.
I don’t quite know what to say about my experience testing out the new Dove Milk Chocolate with Peanut Butter candies. A few words that come to my mind are:
Creamy. Delicious. Melt-in-your-mouth good. Silky-smooth. Addictive. I couldn’t stop popping them in my mouth.
The kids loved them, too. So much so that AJ begged me for more of my peanut butter chocolates all day long. And made me read the messages inside each and every wrapper that he opened. My favorite message (and, yes, I did keep this wrapper…) was:
“Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on after all others have let go.”
And you’d better believe I found CandyMan sneaking a few here and there. We ARE a candy family, after all. Chocolate is our weakness. And this is GOOD CHOCOLATE.
Did you know anything about DOVE’s history?
Created with love by Greek-American founder Leo Stefanos, DOVE® Chocolate has been a rich family tradition since the 1950s. Witnessing his son racing down the street after an ice cream truck, the Chicago candy store owner developed the DOVEBAR® out of concern for his children’s safety. Hand-dipping ice cream in premium chocolate, Leo took months to refine the recipe, naming the new treat after his south side candy shop, a moniker chosen for its “peaceful” quality. Those first rich, creamy DOVEBAR® were an instant success, but it wasn’t until Leo’s son grew up and followed in his father’s footsteps that DOVE® Chocolate became known from coast to coast. By the late ‘70s over one million DOVEBAR® were sold in a single year by street vendors to eager children and adults. The DOVEBAR® popularity soon caught the attention of another family of expert chocolatiers. M&M/Mars acquired DOVE® in 1986 as the crown jewel of their company, and refined DOVE® Chocolate’s purity and taste before introducing milk and dark chocolate bars in the ‘90s.
