Multiple wow-factors: some of the softest, sweetest nibs around. Tempting to call it ‘all hat / no cattle’ as in a lot of coating but very little nib (& a sugar pump running thru, under & over sandy cocoa). Flavor spectrum relatively confined but crowd-getting. Clever, well-worked pop-food to move a lot of mouths.
