Is Hershey's chocolate acidic?
Whenever I eat more than one piece of it, my throat burns like I just ate something really acidic, such as a lemon. Does this happen to anyone else? (a similar thing happens when I eat tomatoes.)
it's ONLY straight hersheys chocolate that does this, if it's mixed with anything I don't react.

Either the sugar or the milk is giving you some reflux- sugar does this to me. I don't think it is acid in the chocolate but your stomach acid reacting to something like the sugar.

Possibly too much sugar, and the fat content is a little weird. Maybe too much wax, too. (-: I love Japanese bar chocolate -- Morinaga or Meiji. I tried a Hershey's bar afterward, and almost couldn't finish it. But, hey, it was chocolate. I forced myself.

hersheys is just crappy chocolate
they use sour/buttermilk

i get heartburn from stuff like that especially salsa, pasta sauce etc.

go to your doctor because you have something within your stomach which will start eating away at your lining & organs
