I need unsweetened, Dutch-processed cocoa for a recipe. Does anyone know where I can get it in DC?

    Penzey's Spices in Rockville, or Magruder's in Gaithersburg for Droste. Don't settle for Hershey's!

      Try Whole Foods. I buy Droste brand from the Whole Foods in Arlington.

        I ended up going to the Harris Teeter in Pentagon City and was able to find it there. I searched high and low in DC proper first, but came up empty handed!

          I've never had a problem finding it at Safeway or Giant... Hershey's makes an acceptable product for my taste.

            Agree. The Hershey's is fine and widely available.
