Sorry for not posting in a while, I started my new job last week and boy did they put me to work! I ended up being asked to come in on Saturday and of course being new, didn’t say no.
Anyway, it seems like there’s barely any time at the end of the day to eat dinner, relax, etc. I haven’t done so well on the packing lunch and making dinner fronts and ended up eating out quite a bit. Hopefully I’ll get back in the swing of things soon.
But today I have decided to forgo TV time so I can have a lovely chat with you! So selfless of me!
So I was randomly craving chocolate-covered toffee bars this weekend. In my experience that’s either a Skor or Heath bar, I have no clue if there are any other brands out there. For some reason, Skor seems to belong more to my childhood while Heath bars seem more recent for me. I saw both at CVS the other day and wondered if there was a discernable difference between the two. And yeah I could Google “Skor vs Heath” and read what others had to say, but then I would be depriving myself of a taste-test.
Here’s the break-down of my oh-so-scientific test (and please forgive the crappy pictures):
Skor — very crunchy, more pronounced buttery taste to the toffee, more of a “toffee” taste (salty/caramel).
Heath — crumbly, nice contrast between the saltiness of the toffee and the milk chocolate, toffee taste is more understated.
Mr. Spice’s verdict was that they both tasted the same to him and they both tasted rich. Methinks this is because he’s been shunning dairy for a while (he’s way more lactose intolerant than me) and so the buttery taste of the toffee and the milk chocolate seemed stronger to him. He said he wouldn’t eat a ton of either but that they weren’t bad.
My verdict? They both taste similar at first, but after the 2nd or 3rd bite, I really liked the more pronounced toffeeness of the Skor bar and I liked the crunch factor. I remember them being hard and crunchy and they didn’t disappoint. Heath isn’t bad at all and probably is a bit easier to find, especially if you want the fun-size bars, but if I really had to choose, I would get Skor over Heath. And here’s a surprise twist — they are both Hershey’s products!
Now the important question: Which do you prefer, Skor or Heath?
