ChocolateBet: January 28, 2008

Chocolate of the Day:

2 pieces/individually-wrapped squares
Hershey's - Cacao Reserve
Single Origin Collection
Java - Premium Milk Chocolate
Very Good
Weight: 14 g. in 2 pieces/ 4.2 oz. (119 g.) in total package
Calories: 76 calories (estimate) for 2 pieces
Cost: $1.74 (sale price)
Purchased from Walgreens, Palo Alto, CA

This milk chocolate (37% cacao) square from Hershey's was made with Criollo cacao beans from the Indonesian island nation of Java. It was very good - especially for a milk chocolate. I generally find most popular milk chocolates too sweet.

The individually wrapped squares were part of a larger "Cacao Reserve by Hershey's, Single Origin Collection" package of 3 different chocolates (Sao Tome, Arriba (Ecuador), and Java).
