Hershey's Green Syrup. $2.69 per 48-ounce bottle.

Bonnie: Hershey's new green-colored, chocolate- flavored syrup is only one of many food products inspired by this summer's Hulk movie. Other movie tie-ins include Hulk Green Apple-flavor Twizzlers, Hulk-shaped Jolly Rancher Gummies, and Giant Green Bubble Yum Gumballs.

Hershey's green syrup is also one of the least offensive of several new green-colored foods for kids. I find the thought of kids' starting their day with a bowl of the new Nickelodeon Green Slime, a green cereal with orange marshmallows, absolutely revolting. But if your kids like green foods or the Hulk, you could do a lot worse than this syrup, especially when it's mixed in low-fat milk. At least they'll be getting the nutrients from milk, including calcium - a nutrient that about 75 percent of children don't get enough of.

Carolyn: This new Hershey's syrup is inspired as much by Heinz green ketchup as it is by the Incredible Hulk, but it's not as weird as either. Oh, I'll grant you that green milk is pretty hard to swallow, but put this syrup on vanilla ice cream and it looks just like creme de menthe.

In this case, what's weird is that it doesn't taste like mint. Without the brown visual cue, this syrup also doesn't seem to taste as chocolaty, so you'll end up using more. That's probably why a bottle that at first seemed too big for anyone but the Hulk ended up being just about the right size for a small person with a big love of chocolate (yup, I'm talking about me).
