ChocolateBet: January 26, 2008

Chocolate of the Day:

2 pieces /individually-wrapped squares
Hershey's Cacao Reserve
Single Origin Collection
Sao Tome - Premium Dark Chocolate
Very Good
Weight: .5 oz. (14.1 g.) for 2 pieces / 4.2 oz. (119 g.) total package
Calories: 76 calories (estimate) for 2 pieces
Cost: $1.74 for total package
Purchased from: Walgreens, Palo Alto, CA

These single origin dark chocolate (70% Forastero cacao from Sao Tome) squares from Hershey's were quite good, with slightly richer flavor than most other dark chocolate from other large commercial brands.

Most major brands are now marketing at least one higher-end dark specialty chocolate, probably to take advantage of the increase in market demand for premium dark and single origin chocolates. They may command higher prices (and yield higher margins) too; I'm not sure.
