Kit Kat might be the best overall chocolate. It not only has the milk and extra goodness found in milk chocolate, but it has the cookie wafer also. More filling is always a good idea.

A customized box of See's candy with all of my dark chocolate favorites inside.

If I can't have that I'll take the limited edition Dark Chocolate Peppermint lindt lindor truffles.

Both candies I get every year for Christmas, and it's just about that time again. 🤤

Lindt--those round truffles with the filling. I like most chocolates from Europe too.

Used to love Kit Kat bars but now they're made by Hershey and the chocolate is waxy. I don't eat them anymore, probably just as well to not get all that added sugar anyway. The Lindt truffles are my favorite treat.

Lindt or Ghirardelli dark chocolate. Hershey's is the worst IMO. Doesn't even taste like chocolate.

Warning: this might offend some candy connoisseurs, but my least favorite things to eat in the word are the fancy traditional small chocolates with various types of filling. The only ones I can even eat are the peanut butter ones and usually they aren't that good compared to Reese's. They are all just so sweet. Sickly sweet. I think some people must not have good taste buds or something that they would need so much sugar or whatever they put in them. I usually don't like strongly flavored things in general, and that even applies to savory foods. Maybe the people who don't like milk chocolate just can't taste it very well. Sorry but that's how I feel.

Great thread!

Guittard was mentioned and it is my favorite also. Not easy to find but for those who haven't tried it they may want to give it a try.

I used to love Chocolove but alas they, years ago, got rid of their gluten free marking on the wrapper so they went by the wayside. If you don't have gluten problems they are a good one to try.

Endangered Species is a good one that I can count on to be readily available and gluten free. Favorite flavor is Dark Chocolate with Lemon Poppy Seed.
Dark Chocolate with Lemon Poppy Seed – Endangered Species Chocolate

Favorite chocolate product is Enstroms Dark Chocolate Almond Toffee. Their almond toffee is certified gluten free and stamped on the package. Really delicious stuff.

I love mint chocolate products so Pearson's Mint Patties and York Peppermint Patties are favorites also.

It is fun to think about everyone's favorite chocolate products.

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.
Well, as I mentioned earlier, I went to World Market the other day with my friend. World Market had so many choices of chocolates. I asked for recommendations from a very friendly woman who worked there and I bought three of the ones she said were her favorites.

The three I bought were:

World Market Peanut Butter mild chocolate
World Market 64% cacao Black Forest Cherry Pie
World Market 54% cacao Espresso Dark Chocolate

My husband and I both tried them last evening. We both had the same opinion - they were good, but nothing to "write home about." We both thought that all of them had somewhat of a waxy quality to them. Maybe I should have tried some different ones - maybe with a higher percentage of cacoa - I don't know.

So, burdell, is there another specific one that you recommend? I love World Market, so I'd be happy to go back and try whatever else you suggest.
