This is my favorite brand. I am working on a bar of 77% now.

Of common drugstore brands, I prefer Ghiradelli.

Not real strong or itís too bitter. I prefer the little special dark pieces in those Hershey mixed bags or a good Cadbury dark chocolate bar.

Honestly though the more bitter the healthier it is when you think about it...



Also, if it weren't for my fear of heart attacks that I would say I think almost about constantly my consumption and intake of dark chocolate wouldn't have increased by much at this point, just saying haha.


And another big factor for increasing my intake of dark choc has to with liver disease and so the antioxidants are pretty strong I will say.

I've been known to enjoy nibbling on baking chocolate.

Gone 92% before, even as recent the other Saturday (not this one, the one from almost 2 weeks ago)
I dont recall going higher than 85%. I like Lindt or Neuhaus. But for the last few years my preference nowadays are cacao nibs, and sprinkle some on my breakfast oatmeal.

I've eaten 100%. Doesn't taste that good. I prefer 75-80%.
