The artisanal chocolates of Jacques Torres.

Torres was the pastry chef at Le Cirque before opening his chocolate shop.

I like the Milka brand of chocolates. I usually order some around this time of year, before Easter, on Amazon. I agree, Hersheys tastes chalky and not like it did years ago.

My grandmother in England used to send us care packages for Christmas and birthdays. They always contained my mother's favorite, Bourneville Plain chocolate bars, which quickly became my all time favorite chocolate. The label read "plain chocolate" but it was semi sweet.

Sadly, it's gone now. Bournville still makes chocolate, but it's not the same. Not even close.

Dark chocolate only for me, thank you. If milk chocolate is the onl6 thing available, I'll pass.

I was Dark Chocolate, before Dark Chocolate was cool! Everyone used to give me the dark chocolate bars, out of the bag of Hershey's Minatures. Now, everyone wants them.

Don't recall the brand, but I recently got a couple sampler boxes at Lidl that were quite good. They were in a white, shrink-wrapped box. Will have to look to see if they still have any.

No chocolate is more delicious to me than the simple Hershey's kiss. I have no idea why it seems to taste better in kiss form than bar (or any other) form, however!

I love the hard-to-find Krackel Dark Chocolate, and Mr Goodbar.

I eat the Ghirardelli semi sweet wafers that are made for cooking and I also eat Callebaut semi-sweet that I buy in 40 pound blocks and break off what I want to eat.

Cote d'Or was a really good chocolate, but I haven't had any of theirs for a couple of decades, so I don't know if it is still good. I loved their hazelnut chocolate bar.
