I make an excellent chocolate cake from scratch. At least I used to.
Previously, I used a store-brand cocoa. I've moved, and that store doesn't exist around here. So, having a hankering for this chocolate cake, I went to the local store to purchase cocoa. Only brand they had was Hershey. Bought it, made the cake.
Oh dear god, it's horrible. It tastes like I substituted used oil for the cocoa.
Went to another store. My choices are - Droste, Ghiradelli, Nestle, Scharffen Berger, and that accursed Hershey.
Anyone know anything about those brands? Ghiradelli makes a great chocolate bar, so it's my inclination. I tend to use Nestle chips for cookies, so it's a runner up. The other two I am unfamiliar with.
