Nice cocoa,used to buy this when lived in States.

I have this how do you sweeten it to use in a milkshake because it tastes quite bitter on its own want to mix it with wehy protein to be hones to flavor shakes

How do you think you would sweeten it? Add sugar, sweeteners or honey...

Where abouts in Adsa Benton is it? No one heard of it

by the double doors at the top of the store - big tray full on the reduced rack

Was on the reduced shelf last Saturday for £1.49. Haven't tried it, but I would have if I found it for 50p.

does this have asrsepartame in it....

Hot...if you like your cocoa to taste of vomit.

You can use cocoa to make a nice chocolate milkshake. I buy unflavoured whey protein, add some decent cocoa and then I sweeten it using "NuNaturals, Pure Liquid, Vanilla Stevia, With Singing Dog Vanilla Extract". Tastes awesome. I buy it from iherb or ebay. It costs a lot but lasts months.

As the "unsweetened" part is one of the major words in the title I'd imagine no.

If there is then that has to be a major breech of trade description.

If it taste like the bars then I agree.
Worst chocolate I have ever tasted.

Doesn't that apply to naturally occurring sweeteners though? Don't think any amount of spin could ever be put on Aspartame to call it natural.

hersheys taste like sick

This just cocoa so no sugar and no sweetners which is what you want for healthy hot Choc. Just add agave syrup or honey and hot water. Hershey is reknown for having high antioxidants in there cocoa as it is not Dutch processed. Because of this will be better than cadburys bournville or g&b cocoa which is Dutch processed to remove the bitterness.

I hope it's nicer that their vomit chocolate.

I agree it tastes like sick - jerseys is disgusting

Yes, it is not Dutch processed. That is why it tastes so awful, and not very chocolatey. Eating an apple will give you 10 times the antioxidants in a teaspoon of this. Good heavens.

Wish i got few of these lol

The packaging actually says unsweetened taste, making the whole argument void.

I wish ASDA would stop trying to push American rubbish on us - we've got enough of our own. They keep trying to sneak rubbish in under the Walmart umbrella,

You don't have to buy it.

Does it taste anything like Hersheys version of chocolate?

UnderTheRadar

Hot...if you like your cocoa to taste of vomit.



Ah I agree it tastes exactly like vomit...

Hershey's tastes quite nice... always heard about it tasting like vomit a lot so was weary but I quite liked it

...because hersheys is know for it's quality chocolate.

Well as a connoisseur of vomit and someone who eats it regularly, I can definitely liken Hershey's chocolate to a nice piece of chunky vom.

Actually your wrong. Dark chocolate has an antioxidant rating higher than the greatest fruits which are berries.
Crazy to think chocolate can be healthier than fruit if the right variety.
Apples are 2589 micromoles per 100g
Cocoa Dry powdered unsweetened is 55653 micromoles per 100g.
Cocoa, Dutch Processed is 40200
Blueberries are 9621

That makes Cocoa over 20 times higher in antioxidants than an apple. Check out oracvalues.com if you don't believe me.

Don't compare this to the normal Hershey's chocolate, that is laden with sugar and is way too sweet. Makes my teeth hurt.
This is just cocoa powder, suitable for baking or making a hot chocolate drink.

Amazing how a tub of cocoa can amass two pages of comments! It's either a hot deal or not. End of! LOL

Lol. Do the maths. Are you seriously going to eat 100g of cocoa powder in one go? 1-2 teaspoons max. Apple weighs approx 100g. 1-2 teaspoon cocoa weighs 2-3 gram. Lol! Stop reading dodgy health sites and start thinking!

Good for baking brownies. I think it tastes great in baked goods

Dutch process will stop antioxidants being killed. This is full of antioxidants! There is heaps more flavanols in this than an apple.

I thought I was the only one who thought Hersheys' tasted like sick! Haha. A mate of mine brought a load of bars home for me and I couldn't eat them!

Weirdly, I do quite like Hershey's Butter Cups, though....probably because it's only got the teeniest amount of *that* chocolate on it.

An apple, has 95 calories with 25g of carbs of which 19g are fructose. I don't want to be fat, therefore I avoid excess sugar and carbs. It is also mainly made up of water. Cocoa is not being offered as an alternative to an apple, but an addition to the diet in order to increase antioxidant levels within the body and therefore reduce free radicals.

Although I do sometimes eat apples, I prefer to get my nutrients from vegetables which are healthier than fruit. Cocoa is also a good addition to porridge instead of sugar, for extra taste. A teaspoon of cocoa and a cup of green tea give more antioxidants than a single apple.
ORAC is a scientific method of measuring antioxidant levels in foods.

Please use some intelligence before insulting others as you will only come across as a troll.

I will buy a tub for my home cooking when I go today. THIS should help with all your 'sick & vomit' arguments

""Hershey process" milk chocolate is popular in North America. It was invented by Milton S. Hershey, founder of The Hershey Company, and can be produced more cheaply than other processes since it is less sensitive to the freshness of the milk. The process is a trade secret, but experts speculate that the milk is partially lipolyzed, producing butyric acid, which stabilizes the milk from further fermentation. This compound gives the product a particular sour, "tangy" taste, to which the American public has become accustomed, to the point that other manufacturers now simply add butyric acid to their milk chocolates."

"Tangy", indeed! My favourite milk chocolates are Lindt, Milka, Green And Blacks (dark blue), and good ole Cadburys. UK chocolate is SO much nicer. (I realise Milka and Lindt aren't UK chocolate).

Hi there. You can add sugar to taste, or what's even nicer, sweeter condensed milk to taste. absolutely delicious! Oh and don't forget make with milk, a drop of evaporated milk makes it even nicer.

Still normal price at ASDA Oadby (Leics)
