Chocolate doesn't have a brand.

Chocolate just is.

Like sunshine. Like music. Like happiness.

Since there's so much child slavery involved in cacao harvesting, any brand that doesn't take advantage of it.

I don't know, either. They also have some chocolates with almonds and with pecans. I looked at their website again and could't find out anything about why they discontinued the peanut butter and the vanilla. All I do know, is that I'm really disappointed that they no longer make the peanut butter ones.

Burdell - did you see my other post about the World Market chocolates? I had no idea that they had so many choices and I guess I picked the wrong ones! Which one do you like the best? If it's one I didn't try, I'll go back and try the one you recommend.

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.
Darn it Vrexy but you are a bad influence !!! Iím now going to try to get to the closest World Market soon. Lucky for me (health wise) itís not in my neighborhood.

Well, Cat - I don't recommend the 3 World Market chocolates that I bought. Let's see which ones burdell recommends and then we can go be "bad" - lol

If you don't mind spending a bit of money, try the other brand I recommended in a previous post -

Teuscher

You can order them online and have them shipped directly to your mouth - lol But seriously, all of their chocolates are wonderful!

I somehow missed it, just went back and read it. I have to admit I haven't been to World Market in a good bit, I used to go there mainly for their wine selection at decent prices, that kinda stopped when we got a Trader Joe's nearby. IIRC I used to enjoy their dark chocolate with chili and something with a higher cacao content than the 54% you mentioned, probably something around 80% or so. And I'll mention one of my secret pleasures, I enjoy dark chocolate peanut M & Ms with red wine.

Default Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory

they're not in every city, and they're expensive, e.g. $3 for a truffle...
but it's a nice indulgence once in a while.
