REVIEW: Frankford Cocoa Pebbles Milk Chocolate Bar

What is the Frankford Cocoa Pebbles Milk Chocolate Bar?

After the Fruity Pebbles Candy Bar release in November, it was only a matter of time before we would see the popular sister cereal, Cocoa Pebbles, get its own candy bar. The chocolatey, crunchy, mini flaked cereal is sprinkled throughout a milk chocolate bar.

How is it?

While it’s been a while since I had a bowl of Cocoa Pebbles, they have a distinct and unforgettable flavor. Unfortunately, they are pretty lost in the chocolate sauce (so to speak) with this candy bar. While there is a slight difference in taste, it essentially feels like a Nestle Crunch bar. There is a little more of a fudgy flavor than a Crunch bar, but it’s fairly subtle. It’s still a fine treat, but if you are a Cocoa Pebbles fanatic, I imagine it might disappoint. ?

When compared to the Fruity Pebbles Candy Bar, the Cocoa Pebbles variety is a weak sophomore attempt. The former managed to give you a balanced cereal and candy flavor profile, but the latter fails to stand out in both categories.

Anything else you need to know?

I think we’ve reached a point in history where kids only know Fred Flintstone as a cereal mascot, and that makes me feel old beyond belief. Excuse me while I look up night face creams on Amazon.

Conclusion:

While a fine middle-of-the-road chocolate bar, I doubt it will impress its target audience of Cocoa Pebble devotees. For the price, if you’re curious enough to try it, I say go for it. It’s novel and worth a try, but with literally dozens of higher quality chocolates at checkouts, it’s certainly not going to be my go-to. With the Fruity Pebbles Candy Bar being a home run, it’s a shame this one didn’t quite reach the same level of excellence.

  1. “Excuse me while I look up night face creams on Amazon.”

    Genius, pure genius. Thanks for giving me a chuckle to start the week with. 🙂

  2. I didn’t feel that old until I read this, but maybe it’s because ads for face creams show up too frequently already ?. I think I’ll give this candy bar a try. I really like nestle crunch bars. It will be a nice alternative.

  3. I tried this candy bar, sorry to say it wasn’t even as crunchy as a nestle crunch. Disappointing. If there was a supposedly different flavor that was cocoa pebbles I did not detect it at all. Just a slightly crunchy chocolate bar. I agree with Holly’s assessment.
