Screw those! I spent my summer in Germany and visited a lovely friend of mine in Switzerland and oh my... Once youve had real Swiss chocolate there is no going back. Swiss chocolate is by far UNDERRATED. Seriously. Of course that chocolate will empty your wallet pretty fast!  Pant

If we're talking about actual real chocolate, Icelandic chocolate is by far the superior kind.

If we're talking about candies made WITH chocolate, Japan takes the cake.

If it's Hershey vs Nestle, Hersheys is way better.

As a rule, I bake with Ghirardelli; Nestle is too cloyingly sweet and Hershey--and remember, I live in Pennsylvania, and you can't swing a dead cat without hitting Hershey--has no personality.

I recently heard of a European brand called Milka.  It's distributed in the US by Farrara Candy of Chicago, and I understand it's available (at least online) at Walmart, of all places.  Doing research made me VERY curious. They apparently have a product that has corn chips in the chocolate bar. Watching for it... Amazed

They have Milka all up in the commissaries on Army bases. It's not that great. But chocolate is like wine. There are many kinds.

20-30 years ago Milka chocolate wasn't widely available in the UK, you would generally only get it if a kindly friend  brought it back from Belgium or France.  It was beautiful stuff.  Now you can get it everywhere and it doesn't taste the same, I assume that increasing production so much has affected the quality.

I've tried Hershey's a couple of times and can't believe anyone eats it for pleasure, ewwww.

Hotel Chocolat is where it's at, if you live in the UK and have deep pockets.

Thank goodness I'm not alone, even if you are a durn furriner.  Now, imagine what it would be like if Kit Kat and everything Cadbury were made by Hershey.  It's a sad state of affairs.

Everyone keeps bringing up all these different versions of chocolate but the poll only allows for Hershey or Nestle.

Speaking of child labor, that baby in your avatar is working wayyy too hard playing that bass trombone. :-P

Oh, and that baby will be six years old soon!  She has shown some preference for the trumpet as an instrument she's attracted to, but when I asked her last week while we heard some trumpet playing on the radio, she said she now prefers the trombone!   Good!  She has owned owned a pBone given to her by my mother a couple years ago that comes out every now and then, and she can now produce a passable low Bb and sometimes an F. 

Regarding chocolate, I still choose neither of these, though I love Madagascar chocolate.

When I was on a big band tour sometime in the 80's we played in Hershey PA. The first thing I did when I got off the bus was go buy a Hershey candy bar.

No doubt they are the same no matter where you buy them, but I wanted to be able to say I ate one in Hershey.

This is an American forum (despite the fact that there are members from outside the US)

Hershey is an American company
Nestle is European.

Hershey also has better distribution in the US.

I do prefer Crunch over Crackle ;-)

But Hershey doesn't make a good semi-sweet chocolate.

Neither Hershey nor Nestlé.   Clever

Best chocolate bars widely available at retail outlets (including Trader Joe's): Valrhona  Good!

Made in a tiny town on the Rhône River in southern France since 1922.  Try it - you'll never go back!

As much as I despise Dollar General store here in the U.S., their house brand of dark (or milk) chocolate, which is made in Poland and costs $1 per bar, compares favorably with many of the fancier $2.50-$3 bars on the market.

Wait, is that chocolate made in the US or other parts of the world?

When I lived in Seattle, my admin came in on Monday offered me Canadian chocolate, after a trip north, claiming it did not contain paraffin. It was some time ago, so maybe the recipes have changed. At the time, I enjoyed the taste of home.

US-located, yes, but the owner always assured us that it was an International Forum. :-P 

Anyway, you're all wrong because Cadbury chocolate is by far the best, especially when made by Cadbury Australia.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cadbury

Hershey have tried to gain a market in Australia but failed miserably against Cadbury and the Swiss company Nestlé. I also hear that Hershey is open to possible takeover bids.

BTW, although the medical effects of humans eating chocolate are unclear and what I said in 2014 has not been proven, please do not feed chocolate to your pets - cats, dogs, horses, parrots, and small rodents - because for them it is toxic. Evil
