Add the rich taste of chocolate to your cakes, brownies, and other pastries with HERSHEY'S® natural cocoa powder.

Whether baking cookies, cakes, or macaroons, cocoa powder is a staple in any ice cream shop, bakery, or restaurant. 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. Satisfy customers of all ages, and your chocolate-lovers among them, with rich cocoa flavor!

Rich, Chocolate Flavor

Thanks to the rich taste, HERSHEY'S® natural cocoa powder can be used to create irresistible chocolate cobblers, decadent chocolate sauces, or smooth chocolate frostings. Or, add milk and marshmallows to warm your customers up with a cup of frothy, creamy hot chocolate.

Airy and Light

This cocoa powder 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.

Customer Q&A Ask a Question

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.

    Hersheys has always been a trusted namebrand of cocoa powders and chocolates. This bulk size is a super affordable price that gives superb flavor and rich color in all your baked chocolate products.
    As far as price goes WebstaurantStore has a pretty good price for such high quality cocoa powder. It is also great that it comes in a large bag so I don’t have to constantly purchase small containers.
    I absolutely recommend Hershey’s natural cocoa power 100%! I love using it in my cookies,cake and brownies. The flavor is amazing and I love the 5lb size because I bake so much!
    This is the chocolate powder I would buy at the grocery store which is wayyyy more expensive per 4oz. I'm so glad they sell this is 5 pound bags because I go through a lot of it. It's great in flavor and texture. This chocolate has great quality to it for sure.
    Hershey's makes a delicious cocoa powder. It's the one I buy most regularly. I use it in everything from cake, to brownies, to cookies, to sauces. It's great.
    5 stars! HERSHEY'S® 5 lb. Natural Cocoa Powder is a must if you are chocolate lover just like me. The price is non-comparable and ive used it everytime i bake chocolate cakes/cupcakes. I am happy with my purchased and will definitely buy it again!
    If you bake with a lot of chocolate, this is for you! Such a great deal to buy this in bulk! I have been very happy with this cocoa. My chocolate creations turn out great!
    Great natural cocoa powder at a very reasonable price! We use this as a part of a recipe, where we don't want to use Dutch cocoa, like for a hot chocolate, and it works great!
    Great tasting natural cocoa powder from a brand that everyone knows and trusts. Great taste, great value too. Good to use in a variety of recipes.
    Really fantastic price for five pounds of a well known brand in this herseys cocoa powder. I tried, and am yet to find a better price per ounce than this right here.
    Pretty much the only cocoa we use. Great value and the new plastic packaging is fabulous. Have had trouble keeping it in stock though and was on backorder for quite a while
    Hershey's is the best. Love their cocoa powder which gives my chocolate cake an exceptional taste. No brands can compare with taste and price. Will recommend.
    I could taste the better quality difference in this large bag of cocoa powder. Our brownies come out richer than before. Hershey's always comes through with good quality for the price.
    I use Hershey's as a substitute when I can't get Valhrona in stock. It does pretty well, but once you've been spoiled on great cocoa it's hard to go back! Definitely be sure to sift before using in recipes, otherwise you'll have lumps of cocoa in your baking.
    Item arrived damaged and I contacted customer service and they were very helpful. They shipped the product to me without any extra charges and shipping was very quick.
    I use this cocoa powder in my chocolate cake as well as in my chocolate icing, and my chocolate hand made fondant. It's great quality and tastes great too!
    I'm so glad I found this product! I've been searching in bulk stores but they only had brands I've never used. I've been buying the small container from the food store , and the price CANNOT be beat! And shipping, as always, is ridiculously fast!
    Love the larger bag of cocoa powder. We've shopped around quite a bit and this is a competitive price from others that we have seen.
    It's Hershey what more really needs to be said very good quality comes in nice 5 lb bags reclosable or transfer to your own container
