I can definitely understand not liking Hershey's chocolate, but comparing it to vomit or soap? Hah.

It definitely has a vomit taste to me. Must be the milk they use or something.

The plain bars I've gotten from America kinda have a sour after taste to them but the cookies and cream flavoured bars they sell here are fine.

Oh and mistaking the UK for Ireland, unforgivable. The funniest thing is Ryan posted the video and he even said in the video that Galway was in Ireland.

Fascinating. I guess if you've grown up with it, you just don't notice it or it just seems like a normal part of the flavor. I definitely get the sour after taste but it never seemed unusual.

I'm a European and think Hershey's is okay. Not the best, but definitely not as bad as "vomit taste".

Though I've been living in California for 6 years now so maybe that has altered my taste buds or something :lol.

Hershey's is pretty disgusting. Saying that, I find Dairy Milk to be too sickly sweet for me.

On the topic of Hershey's chocolate, the reason for the taste is the fact that Hershey's boils its milk: http://www.hersheystory.org/about/milton-hershey.aspx. Milton Hershey did this as a way to mass produce chocolate cheaply, which at the time was available only to the upper class. The boiling of the milk goes to the point where the milk almost curdles, thus creating the taste of Hershey's chocolate.

Oh my god, Double Deckers are amazing. Cadbury's >>>>>>>>> ALL.

edit: Oh fuck. This is torture. Fuck. Right, first thing tomorrow I'm buying a massive slab of Cadbury's. Chocolate is basically the only thing that I can taste at the moment anyway.

From: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/02/13/tr...4453.html?_r=1

American milk chocolate specifically Hershey's is known for its tangy or sour flavor, produced by the use of milk that Landuyt refers to as "acidified." ... Hershey's puts its milk through controlled lipolysis, a process by which the fatty acids in the milk begin to break down. ... ... This produces butyric acid, also found in Parmesan cheese and the spit-up of babies; other chocolate manufacturers now simply add butyric acid to their milk chocolates...

There ya go. acidicbodyodorpukechocolate.

Cadbury's Easter eggs are some of my least favourite, I can only eat a little bit before I feel a bit ill.

However, I can eat tons of Galaxy chocolate in one sitting, that's the good stuff. :P

Random question - Has anyone in the UK eaten a Kit-Kat from mainland Europe? They taste so much better, almost worth driving to France for. ;)
