It doesn't matter

As for chocolate, 70 percent cocoa or more, and preferably Swiss, German, French, Belgian or something like that. There is a place for quality milk chocolate too -- the quality stuff (Lindt, Suchard, Ritter Sport) has a creamy taste that melts most pleasantly in the mouth. White chocolate is enjoyable at times, but it hardly counts as chocolate.
Chocolate combines well with ginger, raspberries, cherries, mint, orange, marzipan, caramel and a host of other goodies.
Hersheys does not count as chocolate.

Dark chocolate is best. Raspberries are good with it.

Lullaby Of Foo
Now I lay me down to sleep
Keep my bike safe from the bicycle thief
Keep my tootsies toasty warm
keep my carbon from any harm
Good Night Road Bike
Good Night Moutain Bike
Good night all you Foosters
And good night Moon

Hershey Bars are mainstream bars. Nothing special about them. Scharffen Berger bars, a premium brand, are made by the Hershey company.
Also note that there are discernible taste differences between chocolate produced in different facilities even when the same recipes and manufacturing processes are used.
Good dark chocolate good.
Good milk chocolate better.
Yes, I know that I am a heartless, godless Phillistine. I also run brifters on classic lugged steel 25 year old frames.
