Review from Matty at CandyGurus:
Colts Bolts Classic Dark Chocolate, Peanut Butter & Almonds
“A friend of mine was in Nashville recently, and picked me up a Colts Bolts to check out. This is something Ive never heard of, never seen nada.
The shape is definitely in the hockey puck vein. They appear to be put together by hand, although I suppose I could be wrong about that. Lets start peeling the onion
Mm hmm. Take a look at that. Thats old school craftsmanship right there. I knew at this point I was headed towards a quality confection, I just wasnt sure if it was going to be up my alley or not.
Sweet. Fancy. Moses. WOW. I know what were all thinking here. Jonny (this is you now), this looks kinda like a Reeses. So true. And yet actually, its very true. It looks like a Reeses, and if youre going to compare the taste of this to anything, it would be a Reeses. But theres a very large distinction between them.
Aside from the obvious fact that Reeses doesnt have almonds in it, theres very little resemblance to its mainstream likeness at all. Yes, theres chocolate with peanut butter flavoring inside. But on this one its not flavoring, its peanut butter. Real peanut butter. Also, theres no uniformity to these-which indicates that theyre made on a small scale, which I like a lot. Finally were talking dark chocolate. Thats a pretty big difference, at least to me.
I dont want to imply-at all-that theres something wrong with Reeses. There aint a damn thing wrong with those, theyre excellent. But this confection this is its natural evolution. Upgrade the peanut butter, upgrade the chocolate, and add almonds. All good things in my book.
We still have that creamy inside, although admittedly not quite as creamy as Reeses. Additionally, we now have a thicker chocolate top, which offers a nice amount of chocolate to offset the peanut butter, and makes the experience something different. Throwing almonds in (to anything) doesnt hurt, either. Even more crunch, which is nice given that we have more smooth chocolate to contend with.
All of this adds up to a confection that any candy lover (without allergies, that is) would love. Theyre not cheap, but who cares? At around $2 per, theyre absolutely worth every penny.”
Thanks again to Jonny and Matt at CandyGurus.com for the awesome reviews and photos!
