Hershey Cookies 'N' Creme 
Posted: 21 January 2011    5.0 
Hershey Cookies 'N' Creme The Chinese have no white chocolate, cookies, or creme culture in their history. This is a nation of moon cakes and soy milk. And yet the newly industrializing Chinese show that they know how to pick up and improve on the technology of their teacher's.     
Avg price/gram: USD 0.0241   Cocoa %: 16  Size: 40g  China chocolate 
       


My girlfriend's son came home the other day telling a joke he'd heard the other day at school:  the Lord took 7 days to create the Earth, and China made everything else.    

And now China is into the making of Hershey products as well -- in Shanghai under license.  The Chinese-made version of the Hershey bar was slightly better than the original.   Would China be able to replicate that success with the Cookies 'N' Creme?

While the American version of the Cookies 'N' Creme was white, the Chinese version was yellowish. Cocoa butter content was at 16.2% and milk powder at 18.7%.   The Chinese version was creamier than the American version, so I'm assuming the cocoa butter content was higher.  The amount of cookies per bar was, more or less, the same in both versions.  

I, my girlfriend, and her son snacked on the American and Chinese versions side-by-side.  We unanimously agreed that the Chinese version again trumped the American one, by a tiny, tiny margin.  Neither is a work of art.  The American bar is just less of one.

The Chinese have no white chocolate, cookies, or creme culture in their history.  This is a nation of moon cakes and soy milk.  And yet the newly industrializing Chinese show that they know how to integrate and improve on the technology of their teacher's. 

With the outsourcing flow flooding to China, don't be appalled if all American chocolate manufacturing eventually finds its way to the Hermit Kingdom.
