Hershey's Special Dark
Miniature-sized Hershey's Special Dark bars

Hershey's Special Dark is a chocolate candy bar manufactured by The Hershey Company.

Special Dark is similar to a normal 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.[1]

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.


Hershey's Special Dark is a component of the traditional Hershey's Miniatures assortment, first sold in 1939.

In 2006, Hershey's began selling Hershey's Special Dark Miniatures, which included the plain Special Dark bar, along with dark bars with peanuts (similar to a Mr. Goodbar) and with crisped rice (similar to a Krackel).

Hershey's Extra Dark

Hershey's Extra Dark is a product very similar to the Special Dark. The three varieties are solid chocolate, chocolate with macadamia nuts and dried cranberries, and chocolate with cranberries, blueberries, pomegranate, and almonds. Hershey's marketing emphasizes the antioxidant qualities of these bars' ingredients.[2]
