I must admit I'm a closet fan of Nestle's Mr Goodbar and Nestle Crunch. I know, not the best chocolate but there's something addictive about them!

My absolute favorites of all time are no longer made: Nestle's Milk Chocolate - red & white wrapper. Just had such a lovely, smooth flavor that Hershey's doesn't have, and Caravelle bars, made by Peter Paul, who make Mounds and Almond Joy (but I do not like coconut!) I have now settled on these: Dove dark chocolate Promises, Caramello by Cadbury, AND Milky Way Dark. Of course, any chocolate someone offers me is my favorite right then. I am a major chocoholic!

Dove from the grocery. We've got a couple of places that make their own chocolate on DH's work routes. He stops every now and then, and on special occasions, for some, usually various flavors of truffles.

Almost anything above 85% cacao....including the 100% baking stuff. I've been on the ketogenic diet for a while so anything less than 85% is way to sweet for me. I also try to avoid those brands made with akali (Dutch) processed chocolate if I can.

I think alot of Americans like you are used to partial cocoa and milk with additional sugar from caramel. Because real chocolate with over 50% cocoa taste bitter sour and many folks don't like the raw taste of cocoa. In Europe, hot cocoa taste nothing like hot cocoa here which is usually overly sweet with all the sugar people put in like marshmallows.

I like dark chocolate around 60%.

I don't know where in Europe you are talking about, but I have had hundreds and hundreds of cups of hot cocoa in Europe, from Norway to Spain, and they have not been discernably less sweet than the averege American cup of cocoa.

In fact, if I were to guess, I would say quite the opposite. Then there is the fact that in Spain, hot cocoa has the consistency and sweetness of melted chocolate bars. Literally a cup of melted, sugary goop (and I mean that in a good way :-)
