HERSHEY Dark Chocolate Treats at Duane Reade

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Disclosure: I received compensation and information about dark chocolate from The Hershey Company. All opinions expressed within are my own.

We all have our go-to treats, and for many of us, it’s dark chocolate. I enjoy it as a quick treat throughout the day, or after dinner as a dessert. The Hershey Company offers a wide variety of dark chocolate to choose from that are convenient and portion-friendly and can be purchased at your local Duane Reade.

Duane Reade is new to me, as it’s not a store I ever saw in Indiana. Now that I’m on the East Coast, I’ve become well-acquainted with Duane Reade, which is conveniently located all throughout New York City. I often stop there when I’m in the city and in need of a bottle of water or something easy to eat. Besides food, a variety of household items, personal items, and pharmacy items can all be purchased at Duane Reade, making it a one-stop shop if you’re in need of any of those items.

There are also a few locations in New Jersey, which is where I stopped at today to pick up BROOKSIDE Dark Chocolate and HERSHEY’S BLISS Dark Chocolate. I couldn’t walk there, but it was just as convenient to drive to. Parking was readily available, and I was in and out quickly thanks to the short lines.

I purchase BROOKSIDE Dark Chocolate on my own quite often, and are a favorite of my dad’s, too. I have a particular fondness fruity candy coated in dark chocolate, so it’s only natural that I’d pick up a bag. I like to enjoy these while I’m working on projects (right now, for example), or a quick treat whenever I happen to walk by the bag. (I have no shame.)

Chocolates with fruit flavored centers can often be too sweet, but BROOKSIDE Dark Chocolate is well-
balanced with the dark chocolate complimenting the fruity flavors instead of the sweetness of the two components clashing. I picked the BROOKSIDE Dark Chocolate Goji and Raspberry Flavors because it’s my favorite from the variety available.

Since it’s always a good idea to have more chocolate on hand, I picked up a bag of HERSHEY’s BLISS Dark Chocolate. I find that individually wrapped dark chocolate is convenient to take with me, so I’ll stash a few pieces in my purse for on-the-go treats.

HERSHEY’S BLISS Dark Chocolate is very smooth with a rich chocolate flavor. Its deep flavor really makes this a favorite of mine, especially since it’s not bitter. It’s just a great chocolate.

Growing up, my familiarity with Hershey was with their chocolate bars that are most commonly used for s’mores. Now that I’ve developed more of an adult palate, I find myself gravitating towards dark chocolate with complex flavors, and it’s nice to see a great selection of dark chocolate available by a company with whom I am familiar. I see myself enjoying dark chocolate from HERSHEY throughout the winter season with cups of hot cocoa.
