I like Cadbury.  Wait, aren't they part of Nestle now?

I'm not sure. They might be, Nestle seems to own much of everything else!

I was trying to limit it to Nestle's and Hershey's as they are the general mass made chocolate. I view Cadbury as more niche. Sort of like Windows vs Apple.

I was going to try to judge it on who was the less worse corporation but they've both done crazy stuff.  Don't know

I do put Nestlé Strawberry Quick in my coffee but that's not chocolate.

Nestlé does own Cadbury, the purchase was fairly recent.  However Hershey owns the right to manufacture Cadbury products in the U.S., which is why the two companies are often associated with each other.  

I prefer Hershey's, though Mars and Nestle are much larger companies.

Maybe it's me getting older — people have been saying "Hershey bars were better when I was a kid," for as long as anyone can remember — but I have to say that I find Hershey chocolate pretty repulsive.  This wasn't always the case.

I prefer Hershey's, though Mars and Nestle are much larger companies.

Smaller, perhaps, but very, very aggressive...like a bantam rooster.  They have so much shelf space sewn up that it can be hard to find anything else.

I wonder if Hershey vs. Mars wouldn't have been a better way to go.  There are a lot of people, particularly outside the U.S., who really despise Nestlé for reasons other than the quality of their products, so it's hard to get an unpredujiced opinion.

On a side note, am I the only one who finds that the Nestlé products labelled in Spanish are just better somehow?

I would have to agree here! I also like to buy the Mexican hot chocolate circle tablet things and just eat it, it tastes much better than a regular chocolate bar!

The same goes for Hispanic sodas too id say, maybe something about using real sugar?

I realise this is an old thread but I would just like to clarify: Nestlé do own lots but they do NOT own Cadbury.

Cadbury is owned by Mondelēz International, an American company that split off from Kraft.  Nevertheless, Cadbury products sold in the US are manufactured by Hershey.  Some of the confusion may have arisen from the fact that Kit Kat is another brand licensed by Hershey in the US.

I'll drink to that!!

Actually the best tasting bar I can think of is the "Worlds Finest Chocolate" that the schools sell for fundraising!
Even though they are half the size of what I used to sell,  35 years ago.....sad to say....

Trader Joes has some yummy bars,  and Ghirardelli is also some really good stuff!!

I saw an interesting program about chocolate on TV last night. It seems that eating dark chocolate can improve the memory. Specifically the test had healthy people ages 50 to 69 drinking a mixture high in cocoa flavanols for three months and they performed about 25% better on a memory test. The only problem with chocolate bars being that you have to eat 7 every day. Eeek! :D

Still, if you are a chocolate lover, now you have an excuse for eating more. :/

I like both.  However, Hershey, even the Special Dark, tastes different than other chocolate brands. There is enough room in the multiverse for both.

Outside of english speaking countries, Hershey's milk chocolate bars are considered to be real treats. They taste unique because of some sourness in the milk that is used.

I think they rock, but I wish they didn't have that weird EGBT emulsifier chemical or whatever it is. It's not natural or normal or good for humans to eat.

Neither, I'd give up chocolate.  Both utilize child labor.
