    Chocolate Lovers

    Alright, who loves chocolate?! What's your favorite kind?

    I prefer mine dark. So far, the best I've had is Ghirardelli 60% Cacao Dark Chocolate.

    I freaking love 'Delli.

    For me it's dark, too.

    I also have a few bags of Nestle Toll House Semi-sweet chips I snack on.

    I love chocolate. I'm not picky, though I prefer dark chocolate. Once ate a 1 kg bar of chocolate in one sitting. Right after lunch.

    I've had some pretty bad experiences bingeing on chocolate.

    I almost won $50 CDN by eating one of those 5 pound Hershey's Milk Chocolate bars.

    The Valrhona chocolates are quite good. Get them at Trader Joe's.


    I also kinda like Dagoba chocolates.

    Milk chocolate is like heaven. Even the 70% is good, taste nothing like the chocolate garbage in the supermarket, but definitely an acquired taste. Real good though.

    dark chocolate, but i also love swiss milk chocolate like Milka bars.

    Next week my sister and I are being treated to my mother's homemade chocolate cake- the occasion is both our birthdays ( a few days apart). I can't describe her chocolate cake... it has to be experienced. It follows a dinner of turkey and sweet potatoes... can't wait!

    I don't like the bitter taste of that one though...

    Actually if you eat it the way they tell you, break off a piece and let it melt in your mouth. Don't expect it to taste sweet, it tastes fruity, mhmm.

    When my mom was in Epcot in Orlando, she bought me some 75% pure cocoa chocolate from the German place. It was actually pretty hard for me to eat. I would just hold it and smell it.

    Lindt Excellence 99%. Very hard to find though. I often settle for their 85% bars, which are far easier to find.

    I like El Rey. It's a pure Venzuelan chocolate. Awesome stuff. I think they do a 75 or 80%. It's not really sweet at all, more like a dark coffee. You smell and feel it as much as you taste it.

    check out Target, they Stock the Lindt excellence line. 99% is only availible in the Lindt retail shops, and only select ones at that. I know San Francisco has them, not sure where else.

    for the most part I indulge only on my local guys dark
    http://www.chocolateusa.com/
    His website isn't up yet, but the stuff is awesome, and the smell of the place when you walk in.....
    Although I just had a dark organic bar from a natural food store, I forget who made it but it had a panther on the wrapper, that was quite good as well

    There's tons of chocolatiers here. Godiva's a well known one, but the real goodies can be gotten at Jacques Torres and other places.

    I really like Callebut for making truffles etc. the bittersweet (75%) is one of
    my favourites.
    for eating chocolate I've been really impressed with Vosges they have some
    really interesting combos. this is my favourite today:
