Harry and David Deluxe Dark Chocolate Moose Munch Bar

How could I resist a candy bar with a wrapper that has a picture of a moose licking its lips?

How do you make a Moose Munch Bar? Start with buttery caramel corn. Fold it with smooth chocolate laced with whole almonds, cashews and toffee bits. Drench it in plenty of sweet dark chocolate. Extravagant? You bet. Try some right now!

Harry and David’s description of their Deluxe Dark Chocolate Moose Munch Bar is accurate—the chocolate was smooth, there was one whole almond, one whole piece of caramel corn, one whole cashew, and lots of toffee. The dark chocolate was sweet but melty and messy. The actual bar rested inside a plastic tray within the wrapper, which nicely protected the candy but also made it appear larger inside the wrapper.

I split the 2oz, 290-calorie Moose Munch Bar with a friend, who said “this might be my new favorite candy bar.” The Moose Munch isn’t my new favorite, but it was very good. I’m still stuck on the delicious standard set by the Marich Chocolate Strawberries that I reviewed in May, and even the decadent Moose Munch Bar couldn’t quite make that grade.

The Moose Munch Bar also comes in Deluxe Milk Chocolate, although I didn’t see one at Target when I picked up my bar for about a dollar.

Before it became a bar, Moose Munch was a mix of nuts, caramel popcorn, and chocolate. Harry and David’s regular Moose Munch is available in a multitude of combinations in their gift towers and baskets, or you can buy it in individual packages.

After gobbling down the bar, I’m definitely ready to try some of the regular Moose Munch. I’m still not sure what the snack has to do with a moose, but I like the moose, and I like the candy, and I’m ready for more.
