Strawberries ‘n' Crème and Sprinkles ‘n' Crème are nearly identical twins in terms of the size, shape, and calories they contain. This bar is 39 grams (~1.38 ounces) and 205 calories, so it’s not incredibly high calorie. The bar size is fairly average with a lightness to it, at least when weighed in the hand.

The flavor of this candy bar from Hershey’s is more artificial strawberries than natural, which seems to at least been the intentional end goal. The chocolate bar is very sweet, which takes away from the creaminess a bit. I would have enjoyed this bar a little more if Hershey’s would have shown a bit more restraint here.


Hershey’s Strawberries ’n’ Crème has a prominent aroma of artificial candied strawberries. The overall aroma is both tart and sharp, which at the very least, creates a strong hint of artificiality. It truly doesn’t smell anything like natural strawberries. The aroma is similar to a sugar-laden strawberry jam or even a Jolly Rancher. There’s also not much of a creaminess or sweetness to the aroma. The aroma isn’t unpleasant, but it definitely caters to fans of less natural flavors and aromas.

To touch, Strawberries ’n’ Crème is smooth and waxy, much like it’s sibling, Sprinkle’s ’n’ Crème. Again, the bar of strawberry flavored white chocolate held up well to the heat of my fingers. You’re not going to make a serious mess with this bar, unless you’re holding a piece of it for a significant amount of time, instead of just eating it.

The overall flavor of Hershey’s Strawberries ‘n' Crème is delicious and unique with its combination of creamy white chocolate mixed with crystalline fragments of hard strawberry candy.
