    Head to the Trader Joe's near you, pick up a pack of their dark chocolate. It's pretty good. If you have a supermarket with a "natural foods" kind of section, check there for bars of Green & Black's. A bit pricey ($4-5), but oh so delicious.

    Never even heard of that one. Judging from a quick Google search, they make about seventy different varieties of the stuff, too.

    Valrhona is good stuff. I've seen it at Trader Joe's.

    What dyou think it would take for Trader Joe to open up here in the frozen north?

    As for chocolate, 70 percent cocoa or more, and preferably Swiss, German, French, Belgian or something like that. There is a place for quality milk chocolate too -- the quality stuff (Lindt, Suchard, Ritter Sport) has a creamy taste that melts most pleasantly in the mouth. White chocolate is enjoyable at times, but it hardly counts as chocolate.

    Chocolate combines well with ginger, raspberries, cherries, mint, orange, marzipan, caramel and a host of other goodies.

    Hersheys does not count as chocolate.

    Dark chocolate is best. Raspberries are good with it.

    Don't confuse the product with the company.

    Hershey Bars are mainstream bars. Nothing special about them. Scharffen Berger bars, a premium brand, are made by the Hershey company.

    Also note that there are discernible taste differences between chocolate produced in different facilities even when the same recipes and manufacturing processes are used.

    Good dark chocolate good.

    Good milk chocolate better.
