Vader, Hershey's is most definitely chocolate, and millions of people all over the world will tell you that.

Obviously some people do have a real "sweet tooth" or even more.

Sarge, Hershey's is not chocolate. I don't know what it is, but to anyone outside the US, it's definitely not chocolate.

Not much of a chocolate eater.

But personally not too fond of most japanese, american or british chocolate most of those are too sweet for me.

Central european Chocolate I do like though, more of a bitter taste.

When I was visiting Japan I never ever tasted any of the chocolates. Whats the consensus for those chocolate munchers who are currently in Japan? Yes to local cocoa, or only buy imports? xD

"high-end chocolates"

Today I saw a shop selling a heart-shaped box of around a dozen bite-size chocolates for 3,700 yen. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! For 3,700 yen I can buy 10 big size yummy Hershey's chocolate bars, each one containing at least twice as much chocolate as one of the heart-shaped boxes.
