Hershey's Extra Dark 60% cacao

After tasting so many superbly made chocolates, it is bracing to taste this mass market bar. There is no nuance to this chocolate, and not much to like. It has a grainy consistency with chalky aspects. There is bitterness during consumption that leaves a metallic aftertaste. I would call the overall taste "earthy," but in the sense that it is like tasting soil. This bar is not a good representative for the world of dark chocolate. 5
