It's the best. Hands down. The cocoa has such a rich flavor that just tasting the powder itself feels like you just ate a piece of chocolate. I've tried other brands of cocoa powder, some more expensive, some less, but I'm good with the Hershey's.

It makes sinfully chocolatey cake and frosting, and works great for cookies and hot chocolate. I swear on my life I'm not just trying to talk it up, I legitimately love this stuff. Sometimes I throw a little in pudding or ice cream or milk... sometimes I have a spoonful of straight cocoa powder tbh

Is it a little pricey? If you're on a tight budget, maybe. Otherwise I'd say it's a good deal considering it's so versatile and is a quality product.

I believe it's about $3.50 at my local store and I usually couldn't care less about brand names unless they have the lowest price, I'm a discount bin scavenger. Really though, if you bake or like to make desserts from scratch and are looking for cocoa that really tastes like chocolate this is worth it.

(btw it makes great homemade thin mints)

This is perfect for any dark chocolate baked good (I especially like to make this with dark chocolate cheesecakes!). Kind of hard to find, but very delicious and inexpensive!

I love the Hershey's Special dark cocoa powder. I use it for most of my chocolate desserts. Recently I used it to make my Coffee chocolate muffins. It turned out really yummy. I bought it at walmart and the pricing was really good. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for dark chocolate powder.

This made an amazing dark chocolate cake and frosting. My dad LOVES dark chocolate and he said this was almost too much. Which was my goal for the most part. I wanted to make the chocolaty-ist cake ever.

Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa Can is great for making the best hot chocolate ever! So much better than instant packets. This is also used in baking, like making a cake or brownies. I've added some to my smoothies as well to kick up the chocolate flavor a notch or 5.

Intensely dark and rich cocoa powder! If you are a dark chocolate lover, you will absolutely love how smooth it is. No harsh aftertaste or bitterness. I love to add a bit of coffee to my cake batter to give it an extra kick. Very easy to use. Recommended to all the chocoholics out there!

I've done my fair share of baking throughout my 23 years. I've used so many different types of cocoa to bake with but this one stands out to me. I am a dark chocolate person 100%, so when this came out, naturally I started to use this and I loved how the cookies came out. However, it made it hard to determine when the cookies were done.

Yummy!! I bought this product for the first time recently and I am so glad I did. I had bought the regular cocoa before and liked it too. The flavor is amazing! I would definitely recommend trying it if you like dark chocolate. I made no bake cookies with it and a frosting with it and they were both really good!
