In a chocolate tasting testing I attended a few months ago, given by a
chocolate scientist here at the University of Wisconsin, we tasted
chocolate of a wide variety of percentages of Coco and Coco butter, from
all over the world.  What we found is that Hershey's came in dead last
when we rated them.  One of the reasons is it's texture.  If you place
some on your tongue and rub it against the roof of of your mouth, it is
more grainy than other chocolate.  Many people commented on this and I
also found it true.  It's melting point is higher than many chocolates,
so it does not melt as quickly in one's mouth, and thus the grainy
texture.  I'm not knocking anyone's love of this particular chocolate,
but this is what we found.

Actually, many of us in the U.S. agree with you, at least as far as the
everyday chocolate goes.  We have to go to a candy store in the mall to
get the good stuff, (See's) and it's far more expensive.  I've never
understood why our everyday chocolate lags so far behind other
countries.  *sigh*

Frankly ... and this may alienate me from all those who live in the US
... but I'm not a keen fan of US chocolate.  I loooovvvvveeee very much,
however, English Cadbury chocolate.  It's creamier than ours in
Australia and I would just about walk to England to get it!

Hi Pam and all,
I still like Hershey's and Nestle's. Hershey's reminds me of my
childhood at Grandma's house; after dinner she'd get a big Hershey bar
out, break it up into a bowl, and we'd sit and watch TV and munch.
Comfort food; what more can I say?
