Default extra extra dark chocolate

Lindt's 85% cocoa chocolate bars, I just found these today, wow they were really good. Only 5g of sugar per serving, so you get to really taste the chocolate w/o the sugariness taking over. Highly recommended !

Actually . . . I prefer the Cote d'Or 86% chocolate . . . if you happen to see those, give them a try, too.

I have been treating myself to Trader Joe's 71%. It has 12 g. sugar. Next time I go there, I will see if they have one with less sugar. I don't know if it is my imagination, or if this high % chocolate is more satisfying than a hershey bar. Like you say, you definitely can't complain that it isn't chocolaty enough!

I have heard small amounts of dark chocolate is good for the body. Wonder if that is true.

Shy,

Chocolate contains antioxidants and dark chocolate is more concentrated so it contains more.

I love dark chocolate and try to buy mine above 70%, generally above 80%. Whole Foods has a wide selection of dark chocolate. Lindt even has a 99%. It is crazy, one little bite filled my chocolate need.

I don't like dark chocolate at all. I want that wimpy milk chocolate. I know in heaven you can eat all you want and not gain a lb. lol I was told a woman should have some dark chocolate each day it is good for them. I was never much of a chocolate eater so I haven't really missed it.

Chocolate is an important food group.

Shy, I love the avatar today. Where do you find those?

Lindt sells a 99% chocolate here. I must be the only person in the country who actually loves it, because it's very dark and intense (and you just *can't* binge on it, it's plain impossible ). They supposedly also have 99% truffles, but I haven't managed to find any (I was hoping they'd be more bitter than the 85% ones, which just taste more like regular chocolate than like really dark one IMHO).

I loove really high-% dark chocolate. I find that one or two little pieces will satisfy me, whereas with milk chocolate, I can't ever get enough to satisfy me.

Kery, that 99% sounds heavenly... I'll have to see if we have it here!

Practiceliving,

Look to see if you have a Lindt store near you, they should carry the 99%. We have the 99% here at our Lindt stores but I haven't seen it in regular stores that carry a wide selection of Lindt chocolates.

There are 2 of us that love the 99%!! I'm always scared that they are going to discontinue it - it's the only bar like that with pieces that are the perfect size!! When you find those truffles, let me know!!

I prefer milk chocolate... but if it's 60% dark or less I'll eat it. Bernard Callibeau is my all time favorite!! The chocolate factory is right here in Calgary

If you're familiar with Calgary, it's just south of downtown on McLeod trail
They used to do tours of the building, but as far as I know - they have stopped. They also have one in Banff in one of the malls off of Main Street.
