Default What's your favorite dark chocolate?

I think mine is Dove. I've tried a bunch of other kinds and I just find Dove to be the creamiest. What do you guys think??

My absolute favorite is Salazon sea salt chocolate

I'm also a big fan of Taza chocolate and Trader Joe's 'Chocolate Lover's' chocolate bar.

I really like the Endangered Species 72% chocolate, very chocolately, smooth, and not too sugary like so many of the purer, darker chocolates.

Cadbury Royal Dark Chocolate...I'm not a huge chocolate eater, so I like that it isn't bitter like some of the other dark chocolate I've tried. It's very creamy, but not overly sweet.

I haven't even heard of a lot of these! I'll have to start trying them, LOL! My co-workers and I decided to have a dark chocolate tasting soon to decide which the best one is. I'll throw these into the mix!!

Right now I'm enjoying Lindt 85% Cocoa Excellence but I have to warn- it's an acquired taste! The reason for choosing it was it has a very low amount of carbs and sugars (5 net carbs per serving) so I can indulge and still stay on my plan.

I like to eat it with a handful of almonds... yum.

I'm not so much of a dark chocolate fan but my favourite brands for choc in general are Green & Black and Montezuma, and I'll sometimes have a G&B Maya gold, which is dark but not that dark with orange spicing. Lindt Orange Excellence is a good citrus-flavoured dark bar too.

Arrgh - must stop thinking about chocolate now.

I love the Trader Joe's 100 calorie dark chocolate bars. I always preferred milk chocolate to dark but have found these to be quite good and not quite as bitter as other dark chocolate.

I like the Lindor Dark Chocolate Chili, the Endangered Species 72% w/ blueberries or w/ the cocoa nibs, & the Endangered Species 85% dark. Yummy.

I used to be all milk chocolate all the time, but I've found my tastes have changed over the last few years and the dark is so much better.

Oh and another favorite of mine is Ritter Sport dark chocolate. It is nice and creamy.

Dove tastes kind of chalky to me.

Lindt 99% - though the only thing more bitter is me, that it costs twice as much as the others!
