MessageYes, I've always thought it grainy.  Wish wish wish we had European
chocolate here!

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?
