Hershey's Special Dark

Hershey's Special Dark

Buy chocolate on Amazon


Taste test: This thin chocolate bar had a 3x4 grid of detachable sections, each bearing the Hershey's trademark.

I've always favored milk chocolate over dark chocolate, and this bar won't be the one to make me change my mind, but as dark chocolate goes, about average. I know Hershey's has been making Special Dark for many years, but they're now promoting its antioxidant health benefits. If you want something healthy, a candy bar probably isn't the right choice, but if you need a chocolate rush and enjoy dark chocolate, this is a decent candy bar.

Smell test: Good dark chocolate smell, more sweet than bitter.
