Anyone else notice it's awfully hard to find dutched cocoa powder? The only places I've seen it sold was at the Spice terminal for nearly 9 bucks a box, or at Trader Joe's where they no longer carry it. Maybe Di Bruno's has it? But I bet it'd be awfully expensive. Maybe Nuts to You?

I do too, but my sister stole my unopened lb bag before I got a chance to use any of it and she's all the way up in Boston. I'm planning to order it again after the holidays, but I was hoping to find it before then :(

Believe it or not, I've bought it at supermarkets. Not all have it, and I haven't looked lately. FWIW, Hershey's Special Dark cocoa is a Dutch process cocoa; given Hershey's distribution strength I imagine you can find it in many supermarkets.

Whole Foods sells Valrhona cocoa powder, Caviar Assoouline sells Guittard (though I think they may have to order it); I know that the Valrhona is dutched, I'm 99% sure that the Guittard is.

Can you find Droste? It's is sold in many supermarkets, specialty stores, and some health food stores.

I use the Hershey's special dark. It's good stuff, it got a very good rating from Cook's Illustrated. Try the Hershey's black magic cake. So moist and so delicious.

I just found Droste on sale at Super Fresh in Wynnewood. 5.99 if you have your super saver card. Sweet. Thanks everyone.

Just found some myself today at Genuardi's in Wynnewood. $8.99. But finding pitted dark sweet cherries in a can was much harder. Called 10+ grocery stores and finally wound up at the Superfresh in Wynnewood. $3.99

Callebaut was America's Test Kitchen's (Cook's Illustrated) top rated dutch process cocoa, which made them their top rated cocoa. Only available via mailorder, though.

Too late for Christmas, not too late for Valentine's, though.
