I’ve had some of the brands previously mentioned but as of late, I have been getting the Ghirardelli dark chocolate squares. As well as the mini chips for when I do pancakes/waffles. Although I don’t put them in the mix or make all with the chips.

Is that the semi white liquid -y -ish inside? Maybe not the same because I really can’t remember the brand name. If it is the same, I used to. Many years ago. The last time I tried some thing like that, nearly sent me and my teeth (top and bottom) in some kind of hyperdrive. I think it took me nearly a 1/2 bottle of water and 30 minutes to recover and that was from just one. Vowed to stay away from buying those.

Surprisingly, Wal Mart has a 6 pack of Chocolate bars that are remarkably good for the price.

My favorite is Lindt.

Oh, yes. The Robin eggs. Also the grass and the woven easter baskets with that flexible wood.

Dark chocolate for me always. However I don't like intense dark chocolate like 92% too bitter for me. 70% is good. I will eat milk chocolate if I have too but it's too sweet for me. White Chocolate isn't even chocolate to me and is even sweeter than milk. Lindt dark, Ghirardelli dark, Hershey's, mounds bar. I am sure there are others out there I would like but these are the most common ones by me.

Interesting. I assumed they were always that sweet. OK, so they changed the formula. The only reason would be to go to cheaper ingredients. That is a shame.

I had a couple recently. They were crazy sweet. I didn't realize they were not always this way. Were they creamier? Smoother?

Then something happened. Don't know if it was me or then. I wouldn't throw the chocolate away if i had some, but i don't purchase it anymore.
In its glory days of deliciousness, Godiva was owned by Campbell's Soup (unbelievable, but true). In the late 2000's, it was sold to some conglomerate. It's never tasted the same.

If anyone is a cocoa chocolate truffle fan, the Trader Joe's brand is very, very good for the price.

Maybe it doesn't consist of enough chocolate to be considered a chocolate, but Ferrero Rocher balls would have to be my favorite followed by Ghiradelli caramel.

I really love Ghiradelli chocolate, and their brownie mixes are also great. Also good are Cadbury and Lindt. A lot of people turn up their noses at Hersheys - I think it's still good, though a tier down from the above.

P.S. I rarely get it these days as it's very expensive, but I also love Godiva chocolates... my Dad used to work at the parent company (Campbells) and would always bring them home back in the old days...
