Whats the story with American Chocolate?!?

Whats the story with American Chocolate?!?

OMG! I totally agree. I was in Nyc a while back and we went to the big Hershey's store just off tie square, of course we went mad buying this that and the other for pressies and that, we each spent around or more than $100 (there were 5 of us) on chocolate and such hershey;s merchandise, it was only when we went for a meal around the corner from the store that we actually decided to open one of the bars, OMG it was muck! stupid us! I still gave some of the Hershey's stuff for pressies to workmates and that, butdon'tt think they were that impressed.

I have since been informed that the difference is not only due to the amount of coco butter as said by previous poster, but also here in Ireland and a lot of Europe, we add so much more sugar to our chocolate and sweets in general that they taste so much better!!
