Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate Sticks Review

Hershey Special Dark Chocolate SticksI have been eying Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate Sticks ever since their debut, but I just didn't get around to trying them until recently. According to Hershey's website, "Hershey's Sticks are a convenient, guilt-free way to indulge in chocolate ... each Stick is perfectly sized, containing only 60 calories." A 60 calorie chocolate stick - count me in!

Each stick is a compact confection offering a smooth and creamy sweetness. The texture provides a smooth and pleasant mouth feel. If you enjoy Hershey's Dark Chocolate (or if you have yet to try it), these are a great way to fulfill your chocolate craving without expanding your waistline. The richness of the chocolate leads to a satisfying ending. Furthermore, the long skinny stick allows for the treat to last longer than a small compact "brick" of chocolate. I think that the shape and size of the bar is perfect, but for someone with serious chocolate cravings - then you're probably going to tear through the entire box on 1 sitting. The sticks are about 4.5 inches long and they are really thin.

The nutritional information is what would be expected for an 11 gram picce of chocolate. In addition to the 60 calories, each stick has 3.5 grams of total fat (5% of the RDA) which includes 2 grams of saturated fat (10% of the RDA), 15 mg of sodium (1% of the RDA) and 6 grams of sugar. The ingredients are the standard sugar, chocolate, cocoa butter, etc. However, the second to last ingredient is artificial flavor, which is a little bit of a turn off.

Amazon.com has 12 packs of Hershey's Special Dark Sticks, with 9 sticks each, for $20.35. Watch out for the small portion size. If you really love chocolate then you might find yourself eating more than 1 of these a day (or at one time), and the saturated fat as well as the calories can really start to add up quick!
