How Is Cocoa Made?
Hershey's Natural unsweetened cocoa is originally made from the football shaped pods of the tropical cacao tree. There are about 20 to 50 beans in each pod, and these beans are fermented fora bout a week before being dried. At this point, the beans are roasted and then grinded up into a paste called chocolate liquor. This is pressed into cocoa butter and what remains is then dried into a powder.
