Hammond's Cookie Dough bar has a milk chocolate exterior, with a thin layer of cookie dough flavored filling in the center.
Flavor and Taste - 7.0
The only flavor noticeable is that of sweet milk chocolate. The filling does not contribute any flavor to the bar. Even when eaten on its own, the filling only tastes sweet.
E: Vaguely reminiscent of cookie dough, but too sweet and the flavor is too mild.
E3: Slightly waxy taste.
G: I can't taste the cookie dough filling. I had that expectation with reading the wrapper (otherwise I would have thought it was vanilla nougat), but the flavor and taste is good.
J: Tastes good, but not much cookie dough flavor. Not enough filling. Very sweet.
S: Good chocolate, but I don't taste the cookie dough at all.
Texture - 7.7
The chocolate is smooth and melts well, and the filling is soft and slightly gooey.
E: Good balance of chocolate to creamy filling.
E3: Firm, melts in mouth well.
Aftertaste - 7.2
The aftertaste is that of milk chocolate.
E: Pretty clean, sweet finish.
E3: Very creamy.
G: Tastes like chocolate - but I still don't taste the cookie dough filling.
J: Chocolate, slight cookie flavor starts to come through.
S: Just tastes like chocolate.
Overall - 7.3
Overall, Hammond's Cookie Dough chocolate bar tastes good, however there is no cookie dough flavor at all. The bar would have benefited by a higher concentration of the cookie dough flavor and a higher filling to chocolate ratio.
