“Thank you for contacting us about POT OF GOLD chocolates. I am sorry you were disappointed and appreciate you bringing this to our attention.

New Pot Of Gold

potofgold Lets get this out of the way.  The new Pot of Gold suck.  Like a lot of people around Christmas buy or receive a box.  For the past few years they had a blue box out called the Truffle Collection.  Which was my very favourite because I like every one in the box.  There was no gross ones.   Well this year the changed the box.  So I was like, well things change no big deal.  They I found out there is no longer a Truffle Collection.   Now it is called Excellence Fine Chocolates & Truffles.  Again I was, well things change.   When I opened the box I was shocked.  They complete changed them.   They are a lot smaller and dull looking.  They all so taste like shit.  Was not happy at all.  I am going to write a complaint to Hershey.   I know I am not the only one that is not happy.   I am not going to buy another Pot of Gold box of chocolates again.
