Customer questions about this product

What is the difference between Dutch cocoa and natural cocoa?
At first glance, Dutch-processed cocoa is darker in color than natural cocoa powder. Though both types of cocoa powder are acidic, Dutch cocoa powder has been washed in a potassium solution to neutralize its acidity, which produces its dark, rich color. Natural cocoa powder tends to have a lighter color because of the acids left intact. Most cocoa powder you will find in American grocery stores is natural cocoa powder. In terms of baking, Dutch cocoa powder is often paired with baking powder, whereas natural cocoa powder is usually paired with baking soda.

HERSHEY'S natural cocoa powder adds a rich chocolate flavor to cakes, brownies, and other pastries, making it an excellent addition to any bakery! Cocoa powder comes from the cacao bean, a fully fermented bean of the tropical Theobroma cacao plant. Once cocoa butter has been extracted from the cacao beans, the remaining dry substance called cocoa powder, or simply cocoa, has a distinct taste. Commonly used in many confections, natural cocoa powder can help to create an endless variety of chocolate-flavored treats. It has a light brown color and a soft, floury texture. It is best suited for use with baking soda, rather than baking powder, when baking.

HERSHEY'S natural cocoa powder can be used to create irresistible chocolate cobblers, decadent chocolate sauces, or smooth chocolate frostings. Add milk and marshmallows, and warm your customers up with a cup of frothy, creamy hot chocolate. Whether baking cookies, cakes, or macaroons, cocoa powder is a staple in any ice cream shop, bakery, or restaurant. Satisfy customers of all ages, and your chocolate-lovers among them, with this rich cocoa flavor!

Hershey Foodservice is a leading North American manufacturer of chocolates, confections, toppings, and baking products. It all started with Milton Hershey, who began producing milk chocolate in 1905 in the town that now shares his name. Though chocolate was once a luxury for the rich, Milton Hershey helped make it more accessible and affordable for everyone, and Hershey's Foodservice products are now known the world over. Hershey, Pennsylvania is known as Chocolate Town USA and for good reason; as soon as you offer Hershey's Foodservice products at your business, your customers will recognize a brand that stands for nothing less than quality, freshness, and great taste!

Hershey cocoa powder is hands down the best. It's the signature for chocolate and we love it so much. We use it for our cakes and cookies

I use this cocoa powder to make my chocolate buttercream as well as my Smores Pie. They both always turn out great with no tiny clumps of cocoa powder.

Alicia J. from Rebel Cupcake on 05/24/2020

Hershey's natural cocoa powder is fantastic for making chocolate milk shakes with. It has a natural tasting chocolatey flavor and does not taste too artificial.

Chris P. from Republic Ice Cream on 11/05/2019

I use natural cocoa in all my baking. Gives my recipes a nice smooth non bitter flavor.

Michelle O. from Christys Kitchen on 04/10/2019

This is the best baking cocoa that I have ever found. I bake the most delicious goodies with this! You just can't beat Hershey's chocolate in the USA. Good value for your money too. Strongly recommend for anyone looking to bake some of the richest chocolate flavored goodies.

The best cocoa powder we've found. Hershey's products helps with so many of our cupcakes and cakes we produce. Probably would never use another brand.

Kelly K. on 11/12/2018

This is a great quality cocoa, and I like buying it in bulk this way. I use it in my buttercream frostings and its delicious.

Jennie H. from Jennie's Cake Creations on 08/22/2018

The HERSHEY'S natural cocoa powder is great and perfect for baking and creating brownies. The powder is terrific and makes for the best chocolate cake.

Rich M. from Round Bagel on 03/19/2018

I love Hershey's cocoa powder for anything I bake with chocolate. Brownies, cake, you name it. Hershey's is affordable and packs a lot of cocoa flavor.

Jessica A. from Bb on 08/16/2017

I was surprised to get this in a bag with a zip type for a closure, but it worked although it was a bit awkward to dump into a container without kind of making a mess. Still it is less than buying it from other sources.

Tina M. on 03/31/2017

Twenty five pounds of coco powder is an unbelievable amount. This is a Hershey brand do you know it is top quality and will provide a good taste.

Travis F. from Sweet Pea's Cupcakery Cafe on 02/16/2017

Gave this 5 stars based on the product itself. This ships in a cardboard box that is lined with a plastic bag. Can be quite messy but otherwise pleased with the value.

Julie L. from Whisk Bakery And Coffee Shop on 01/04/2017

We love this cocoa powder. We use it to bake with and the tastes and results are delicious. You can't beat the pricing either. I would recommend this product.
