Hershey’s Extra Dark Chocolate with pomegranate
August 7, 2009 - chocolate
“It’s delicious, and it has a little taste of [fruit] punch in it. It tastes a little bit like grape juice.” - 5-year-old
“It tastes like Giselle.” – 3-year-old
Surprisingly, it doesn’t immediately taste like Hershey’s chocolate. We think there might be a little too much pomegranate; the sweet and tart fruit almost overwhelm the chocolate. Okay, so maybe that’s a good thing because it’s Hershey’s?
The chocolate is creamy and smooth, and a little too sweet for my taste. That does make this a good chocolate to introduce oneself to dark chocolate with. The bits of pomegranate are chewy, and stick to your teeth. Interestingly enough, my 5-year-old was pretty accurate with review: among ingredients listed are fruit juice concentrate (apple, cranberry, pineapple and elderberry juice concentrates). So, overall, the chocolate is overpowered with fruit juices and tastes, but has a good consistency.
