Cocoa powder is mostly used in baking procedures and is very less consumed directly or maybe not even consumed.
The Bittersweet chocolate
Bittersweet chocolate is mostly 50% cocoa. It is slightly bitter compared to other chocolates. Its taste is mildly sweet, so it can also be called extra dark chocolate. You might not consider having it directly without any other combination but there are some chocolate lovers who love it like that.
