Posted at 6:00 AM, Sep 25, 2020

If you’re craving a candy bar that brings together rich milk chocolate, the sweet crunch of a shortbread cookie, and gooey caramel, you’ve probably satisfied that urge in the past by grabbing a Twix bar. But now there’s a new chocolate bar from Hershey’s that steps up the candy competition.

Hershey’s Milk Chocolate with Salted Caramel Cookies is the candy company’s newest creation. We’ve seen so many varieties of the classic milk chocolate candy bar, including Hershey’s Gold, over the years. But, this confection invention may be the best idea yet!

We found the king-sized (2.5 oz.) Hershey’s Milk Chocolate with Salted Caramel Cookies candy bars available on for $1.48. So far, we haven’t found it available on any other retailer’s website. Could this be a Walmart exclusive? Maybe. But, we’re keeping an eye out on other places this new must-have candy bar may pop up on shelves.


What makes the latest Hershey’s chocolate bar a fierce competitor in the chocolate cookie candy bar fight? The addition of one basic ingredient: salt. When you add salt into the mix of chocolate, cookies, and caramel a whole new taste experience is born!

Hershey’s Milk Chocolate with Salted Caramel Cookies has the milk chocolate you know and love plus the bonus of crunchy, salty caramel cookie chunks mixed throughout. Each bite is packed with cookies so you get the full flavor combination to enjoy from beginning to end.


While we love the idea of just grabbing one of these king-sized candy bars for a snack, we think they might also be an amazing addition to a number of baking recipes. Imagine bringing this combination of creamy chocolate and salted caramel to one of the candy bar cake recipes we’ve shared?
