I used to LOVE Hershey's Special Dark because it wasn't as sweet as milk chocolate. This tastes WAY too sweet! Please go back to the old recipe and DON'T change it.

I never buy Hershey’s because it is just sugar in the texture and color of chocolate. I bought this because they said it’s super dark and mildly sweet. there’s is nothing “mild” about the sweetness

Special Dark

The Special Dark was once my favorite Hershey Bar. Recently received some Special Dark bars as a gift. I was surprised when I tried them, not like I recalled. Something about the texture, does not seem as creamy. Cant put my finger on it, but not thrilled with the Special Dark any more.

HERSHEY’S Special Dark

1 out of 5 stars
tim67 - 10 months ago

I used to love HERSHEY’S Special Dark chocolates. I would buy the kisses buy the bag and devour them. But in the past six months or so the taste has changed. It is now much sweeter and doesn’t taste anything like they used to taste. You can even tell the difference in the way the kisses look, the new ones have a more rounded tip. What happened to Special Dark and why the new “mildly sweet” tag? The new formula is not good and I’ll no longer buy Special Dark.

Excellent Dark Chocolate Bar

5 out of 5 stars
Tlynfav - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
This is excellent dark chocolate , smooth and perfect for a little snack. I love that you can break off one small piece at a time and save the rest and it lasts a long time, this is a BIG bar. A great bar to give as a gift added to a basket or as a token to anyone that appreciates superior dark chocolate but doesn't need a big box full. A low cost for such a great product. I will order again and again as long as available.

This is probably the best flavored chocolate Hershey makes. It's not as laden with sugar as all other Hershey products are and the flavor is not as harsh as some dark chocolate can be. Their Special Dark cocoa is the bomb! Perfect for hot cocoa and superb for baking!!! Wish Hershey would temper their chocolate and reduce the amount of sugar. Nearly 100% of their products are rubbery with no snap at all and have enough sugar to give an elephant diabetes.

Favorite dessert chocolate. It’s sweet and balanced. Tastes great like real chocolate. Makes the regular milk chocolate taste like water anymore. It’s readily sold just about everywhere but when I’m in the candy at target I grab one ;)
