Lindt 90% bar is good, cheap and easily available. I like the Ritter sport marzipan bars and the Niederegger marzipan bars which are harder to find. Poor availability helps with moderation.

Wilbur Buds are made of much higher quality chocolate than any of today's Hershey products.

Just goes to show how different people have different tastes. I've never thought of Lindt as waxy in any way, but I have had other chocolates that tasted waxy to me - can't remember which ones, though.

I've never tried the World Market chocolates, but I appreciate you mentioning them and I will definitely make a point of trying them. I love World Market!

Those coins and that whole experience sounds wonderful! Lucky you!

I don't recall ever seeing the peanut butter filled centers and I no doubt would have bought them if I had. Were they in the form of a flat bar or peanut butter filled truffles? I wonder if they were only distributed in certain areas?

Yes, give the World Market a try and let us know what you think.

One brand I no longer seem to see around that was common when I was a young boy is Van Houten. I've always been more of a dark chocolate fan than milk chocolate and IIRC they were about the highest %-age cacao you could find at the time although I don't recall any brand being marketed listing that number at the time.

Torn between Roshen, AVK (АВК) and Russkiy Shokolad. They're all really, really good.

Bet you can guess what's in my Hallowe'en bag for this year.

Lindt, Neuhaus or pretty much any chocolate made in Europe as they have higher standards by law on what can be called chocolate. Also like fine chocolates from chocolate producing Latin American countries like Pacari chocolates from Ecuador.


I don't care much for chocolates made in America whose qualities fall lower than Euro standards cause they add edible paraffin wax as a filler to prevent melting while using less chocolate.


I just enjoy really good chocolate.

I prefer dark chocolate and my favorite brands are: Endangered Species and Ocho. Endangered species is fair trade and delicious, each of their flavors features an animal and some proceeds go to protect that animal and their habitat. Peppermint crunch is a good one but only comes out around the holidays.

Ocho is similar to mounds but superior ingredients and taste. I believe also fair trade and non-gmo.

Stam Chocolate. ( https://stamchocolate.com/ )


Full disclosure: I am related by a few degrees of separation to the family who owns this chocolate company.

They import their chocolate to US from their other family members in Holland, which has made chocolate in the Netherlands for more than 100 years. It's good stuff.
