Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa Powder Review

Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa PowderLooking to satisfy a dark chocolate craving? Look no further than Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa Powder. Sure, I'm a huge (HUGE) fan of Ghirardelli Natural Unsweetened Cocoa Powder, but it doesn't quite satisfy my craving for the rich, antioxidant-packed dark chocolate taste. I have tried loading up my foods with the Ghirardelli variety, but I still can't quite get the same richness that comes with dark chocolate. That's why I was so excited when I found Hershey's Special Dark.

NUTRITION FACTS

I added some to my oatmeal and found that it was transformed into the richest, fudgiest chocolate dessert ever. yum Yum! Delicious, rich, dark, and everything cocoa powder should be. What I like about using cocoa is I can scale up the chocolate factor while keeping calories in check by using Splenda or another sweetener; I can also adjust the level of sweetness to my liking.

Each tablespoon of Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa Powder provides just 10 calories, 0.5 grams of total fat, no sugars, 2 grams of fiber, 1 gram of protein, and 10% of the daily value for iron. I did not expect to see any fiber in the nutrition facts (but I'm sure glad it's there). The ingredients are, Cocoa and Cocoa Processed With Alkali.

An 8-ounce container of Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa Powder cost me $3.99, but you can also purchase six 8-ounce cans for $18.99 at Amazon.com. Yes - 6 containers could last a very long time!

I love this stuff. It's my new favorite cocoa find, and I will continue to experiment by adding it to different recipes.
