Anyone else notice that 95% of all chocolate now has soy lecithin? 10 years ago, I had never heard of it and now it's in almost all chocolate bars and I'm allergic to it. I've found maybe 1% of chocolate have sunflower lecithin.

Turtles or Goo Goo clusters. I like Zero bars too.

A like basic chocolate that usually has sugar and few other ingredients.

Most of the big candy-companies have this stuff down to a science, usually quite to my liking. Some of the cheapoes add crud like vegetable-oils to their chocolates, I avoid.

I don't like most candy or candy bars!

However, Lindt milk chocolate (red wrappers) are good.

or Paul Newman Organic Dark chocolate peanut butter cups are really good.

Otherwise, if I have trail mix I made, I add plain M & M's.

That's it for me, as most American candy is horrible.

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

Follow-up to my post.
I think that Endangered Species changed their recipes. Over the holidays I picked up a peppermint crunch bar, looking forward to it, as it only appears near Christmas. I noticed first the packaging is different. I didn't see the animals/ penguins on the front, but the taste too. Maybe their other flavors are still good? Has anyone tried their bars in awhile?

Ocho is still awesome!

Toss up between the legendary Zero Bar and the never-to-be-forgotten 5th Avenue.
