The Hershey Legacy
The story of Hershey’s Chocolate begins with Milton S. Hershey. Raised as a poor farm boy, Hershey became fascinated with chocolate-making at the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition. Hershey founded the Hershey Chocolate Company in 1894, and built the world’s largest chocolate factory in 1903. He then created the industrial town of Hershey, Pennsylvania, where workers enjoyed comfortable homes, inexpensive public transport, and quality public schools. In 1909, Hershey and his wife established a school for orphan boys. Hershey eventually endowed the bulk of his wealth to this school, including ownership of the Hershey Chocolate Company. For more than a century, the Milton Hershey School has enriched the lives of countless children in need. The town of Hershey, Pennsylvania has provided employment, recreation, and culture. And The Hershey Company has brought smiles to people around the world.

I used to buy the old version (silver box) by the case. We LOVED it. It made the BEST hot cocoa, mousse and icings. It was rich, smooth and had a wonderful chocolate flavor. (The only way I can describe the difference is the old version was more like devil's food cake than dark chocolate cake.) I called Hershey's this Christmas (2005) to see if I could order another case. I was told they don't make it anymore, the updated version is the special dark.
I bought the special dark and tried it in several recipes. Even my kids didn't like the hot cocoa with the new Hersheys. The special dark is too dark -- and I don't really mean bittersweet (which I like.) It's not as rich as the old version and seems a little bland. I don't know what Hersheys did, but I'll be going to another cocoa. At one time I had a large tin of Guittard, which I will probably go back to.
The only things that could make it any better is being organic and from fair trade sources.
This year, before Easter, I run out of cocoa. I went to different stores trying to find my favorite cocoa - Hershey's European Style. I couldn't find it! I called Hershey's to see if I could order some and I was told they don't make it anymore, the updated version is the special dark. I bought it but I promise not to make this mistake ever again! It is black, without any flavor, and very unpleasant. If this is Hershey's specialists idea of "European Style - Dutch Processed Cocoa" they are wrong! Maybe they need a trip to Holland to drink some good dark cocoa and attend some training!
I am now going to try to find other brands at other stores and/or will order my cocoa online.
