I agree with you EXCEPT for those manufactured in the USA...they are not the same (would you consider sending a care package?)

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.
They were the Lindor Truffles Peanut Butter Chocolate - the round balls of chocolate with peanut butter in the center. So delicious!

I will definitely try the World Market brand and report back. Looking forward to trying them!

As far as plain chocolate goes, Hershey's and Three Musketeers are my two favorites. Hershey's has a more bitter taste, and the Three Musketeers has a smooth creamy taste to it.

Chocolate mixed rice, nothing beats a Nestle Crunch bar.

Chocolate mixed with coconut, give me an Almond Joy bar every time.

Chocolate mixed with peanut butter, make it a Reese's Peanut Butter cup.

Chocolate mixed with mint, it has to be a Pettermint Patty.

Hershey's and Nestle's is not chocolate, those are chocolate products. At least when compared with quality chocolate and there is a scientific explanation for this: butyric acid (also known as butanoic acid).
Butyric acid can be found in butter that has "gone off/rancid" - and also in the contents of your stomach which you regurgitate when you vomit. Without wishing to put too fine a point on it, butyric acid is what gives vomit its distinctive "vomit" taste and smell. That's how Hershey's taste.
As far as I am aware, the Hershey Process (adding butyric acid) is still used for most (milk) chocolate in the US that creates the taste to which consumers in the US love, and so the practice continues.

BTW: In the US, a chocolate item only has to contain 10% cacao to be called “chocolate.” The other 90% is just milk and sugar. Blech!

I'm sure I've never seen them on the shelf as I'm sure I would've bought them! Distribution of some products can be funny, sometimes I see two stores of the same chain stocking different products in some departments. Have you tried Emailing Lindt to inquire if they've actually been discontinued, possibly your local store just stopped carrying them? If nothing else it's sometimes worth a shot as enough attention may encourage the return of a product.

EDIT: I was just at my local market, they had 8 varieties of Lindor truffles, none having anything with nuts. Thinking about it I can't remember if I've seen any of their bars with any kind of nut addition. I wonder if they made a decision to keep their production floor nut free?

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.


Does Your Chocolate Contain Wax? – Guardian Liberty Voice
Funny cuz I can taste the wax filler, but I never knew what it was till your post! I like Ghiradelli okay-- it seems to have the least of that taste that I can find.

There is a Chocolate maker in Dania Beach, Florida, Jimmie's Chocolates and one in Palm Beach county, Hoffman's Chocolates. The variety of truffles and other chocolates are unbelievable. Hoffman's has several retail stores in other locations, but I go to the factory location in Greenacres. If you have a chocolate maker near by, I'll bet you will find them to be much better than commercially offered products. Of course, my wife makes some pretty potent Bourbon balls.
