Hershey's Special Dark is a chocolate bar manufactured by The Hershey Company. Special Dark is similar to a standard Hershey bar, but is made with a dark (or semi-sweet) variety of chocolate, and contains a higher percentage of cocoa solids, chocolate liquor and cocoa butter than milk chocolate. The Special Dark bar replaced the similar, if not identical, Hershey's Semi-Sweet bar in the company's product lineup in the early 1970s. Hershey's Special Dark is available in a variety of sizes. There are also Special Dark versions of Hershey's Kisses, chocolate syrup, chocolate chips, baking chocolate, cocoa, and Hershey's Nuggets.
