|When it comes to chocolate, is your type tall, dark and handsome? Then Hershey’s extra dark chocolate might just have you swooning. O.K., it may not be tall, but it’s definitely dark (if you’ve checked out our Chocolate Glossary, you know that “dark chocolate” contains 50% or more cacao content). And its glossy packaging is certainly handsome. Each 4.4-ounce pouch contains approximately 12 squares of regular dark chocolate and raspberry-infused dark chocolate. Other varieties have pomegranate-flavored chocolate (an even bigger hit here at THE NIBBLE). We say, try them all!
The individually-wrapped portions, 1-3/4 inches square and 66.6 calories, are ideal anytime you need a small sweet fix; they are a perfect complement to a cup of coffee. While a USDA study concluded that 37 grams of dark chocolate (about 3 of these squares) offer the same amount of flavonol antioxidants as three cups of tea, two glasses of red wine or 1-1/3 cups of blueberries, benefits, dark chocolate is still a calorie dense food, and should be consumed in moderation. Thankfully, Hershey’s Extra Dark individual portions make moderation easy. Certified kosher (dairy) by OU.
