Chocolate Comparison

Candy | Jan 19, 2007 06:35 PM

On a whim I picked up a bar of the Cacao reserve from Hershey's that is being so heavily advertised, while zipping through the grocery. At home I had opened a bar of Bernard Castelain Chocolar Noir Equateur dake chocolate of Ecuador 70% made in Chateauneuf de Pape, France. The Hershey's claims to be Sao Tome from off the coast of Africa and produced for them in Germany. The bars appear to be identical right down to the size of the squares and both embossed with the same cacao bean. Well in tasting I was surprised, they are identical. I just did a side by side taste test and am quite surprised. I will have to have my DH try to tell which is which this evening. quality chocolate from Hershey!
