Default Why doesn't hershey's make full-size Krackel bars?

Why are they only in miniatures?

You're right, it isn't the same.

Crunch >>>>>>>>>>Krackle.

Hershey is not in the chocolate business, anyway.

They used to make full-size Krackle but they didn't sell well. All of the "miniatures" (Traditional, Crackle, Mr Goodbar, Special Dark) used to come in full-size versions. People just didn't buy them so now they pretty much only exist in miniature form. (You can still find some full-size Mr Goodbar and Special Dark, but they're definitely not flying off the shelves)

I love Krackle bars. I feel like I only see them come out around Halloween though.

There's only 4 miniatures; Goodbar, Traditional, Dark, Krackle, and the first 3 all have regular sizes though...you're right now that I think of it I've never seen someone eating a goodbar...

Because they know they fucking suck so much when compared to Crunch bars that there's no fucking point.

Oh, I remembered now that Hershey shut down their plant in Oakdale, CA a few years back. Oakdale made some of the more esoteric items for Hershey. A good portion of their product breadth was canned when Oakdale close.

Hershey's "chocolate" is gross. It's not even really chocolate.

SOME of Hershey's products don't use actual chocolate (at least, not what the FDA allows to be called chocolate).

Regular Hershey's bars do use actual chocolate, but I think they're pretty bad regardless.

Because Oompa Loompas didn't lend a hand in making it.

It's more like chocolate flavored earwax.

Hershey is my favorite American chocolate company. That said, Krackel bars suck. I'll tolerate them in the bite size, but Crunch is much better.

Mr. Goodbars are one of the few candy bars I like. I have seen full sized Krackel bars here.

maybe you should use your stance of dominance and tell hershey on facebook that they need to do this.

I don't think the regular "chocolate" bars qualify

does that mean he's going to work for them for free and not even get free candy bars, yet still feel an emotional connection and claim he's not being used?
