Hershey’s Kisses goodbye to using cocoa butter in its candy

Do you like Hershey’s Chocolate? Well if you do, then take heed: Hershey has removed cocoa butter from most of its line of candy bars and replaced it with vegetable oil.

So what, you say? Well, according to the FDA, Products such as Whatchamacallit, Hershey’s kisses and Krackel can’t legally be called milk chocolate bars anymore because of the lack of cocoa butter. Cocoa butter gives chocolate its disticntive creamy texture. Without it,  chocolate just tastes flat.

Hershey has fallen victim to the rise of the cost of goods.  The candy must be labeled chocolate candy,  chocolate flavored candy, or chocolaty.

I’m thinking about  making the switch to a higher end of chocolate for now,  until Hershey comes around.
