Looking For My New Bliss
A visitor to TheChocolateLife asks ...
“Is there a chocolate on the market that tastes anything like Hershey's Bliss milk chocolate – those beautiful purple-ish crinkly wrappers?”
Hershey’s discontinued Bliss about five years ago without giving disappointed fans any reason why. The following article on Mashed purports to give the reason and some history.
I don’t recall ever having eaten Bliss (let alone tasted it), not even raiding one of my kids’ trick-or-treat bags after Halloween.
The story from Mashed suggests that Bliss was supplanted in consumers’ minds by a Dove product, but I can’t comment on any comparison not being able to recall having tasted that one, either. And I don’t know if the asker (who wishes to remain anonymous) is keyed in on the taste or the texture of Bliss pieces.

Do you have a recommendation for a replacement/close substitute?
