2013: Dense, salty and rich, like chocolate-covered pretzels.
2014: Sweet and flavorful. Extremely marshmallow-forward.

Way to sweet and rich for my liking... Some things are just 'too good' to be true. Super, super sweet and so danm malty it's almost like chewing on tar. The malty sweetness is far too over the top for me to ever pay the price on this again~
