Heath vs. Skor
In two days time we're going to look at some chocolate covered English toffees in time for the "National English Toffee Day" on January 8th. But today we're going to look at two readily available check out line "toffee" candy bars here in the USA. We're calling this our "Heath vs. Skor" match and if the response is good, maybe we'll do more of these comparisons in the future, Sisters and Brothers, so leave a comment and let us know what you think.
Both bars are made by Hershey so why do they need two bars? One, the Heath, calls itself a "English Toffee Bar" while the Skor called itself the "Crisp Butter Toffee" even though it has a crown on the wrapper. Both were 1.4oz when I bought them and the same price even. Result is that both aren't particularly good in terms of chocolate. The Skor is more for butter lovers, the Heath more for almond and tangyness. So pretty much what the wrappers say minus the strong chocolate that being first in their descriptions implies.
