Do we need more Pieces?

Food and cooking

I had somehow missed the fact that Hershey's has branched out with the Pieces line. Interesting. I've always thought of Pieces as a very Reese's-specific thing. On the plus side, the new flavors are based on three of my favorite Hershey's candies - Almond Joy, York, and Special Dark. But I'm actually a bit skeptical as to how these particular candies will translate to the Pieces form factor. First of all, in a world with dark chocolate M&Ms, is there really a need for Special Dark Pieces? Next: I love Almond Joys, but the candy bars include actual almonds and shredded coconut. I'm less a fan of almond- and coconut-flavored things. And I'm assuming that in this small size, the taste will basically just come from flavoring. I'm most hopeful about the York versions, but even there - peppermint patties have that great creamy texture. Will that be lost?

I saw the Special Dark ones in the store last week and at first I thought they were Special Dark Reese's Pieces - i.e. still peanut butter. I was disappointed to see that wasn't the case and put them back. I haven't noticed the others yet but I have the same questions as you...
