Who makes the best-tasting chocolate?
Which brand/brands do you think taste the best? We can discuss everything from everyday comfort foods, to high-end and more obscure products. I would love to hear your opinions. I’ve always enjoyed Godiva, but since they’re kind of commercial in some respects, I was wondering if anyone here might know of some gourmet, all-natural brands that are just as good or even better. Let me know what you think.May 28, 2010 at 6:39 pm #500898May 28, 2010 at 7:18 pm #816207PurplecatParticipant
Lindt is the best, absolutely awesome chocolate from that maker…I’ve never had better. 😀May 28, 2010 at 8:24 pm #816208purplecat wrote:

Yes, I know. 8) It’s ultra-smooth, no sandy texture. Though dark chocolate is my absolute favorite type of chocolate, Lindt makes a white chocolate bar with sliced coconut. I’ve got to try that! *drools*May 28, 2010 at 8:59 pm #816209Anonymous
Ok, maybe I’m not so worldy, but by far my favorite brand is Hersey’s…. there is something very distinct about the flavor that I really like! :yum:May 28, 2010 at 9:03 pm #816210LaurieParticipantKalandra wrote:

Hate to tell you that Nestles’ trying to buy them then. 😕May 28, 2010 at 10:08 pm #816211
Ooh, Nestlé makes bad chocolate. 😮 (Just my humble opinion)May 29, 2010 at 12:00 am #816212
When I do eat chocolate, it’s Lindt dark chocolate… mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
Sometimes I like to melt it with milk and make hot chocolate (though I usually go half/half with their milk chocolate when I do that – the milk chocolate has too much cocoa butter, but the dark doesn’t have enough to make good hot chocolate). 😀
*suddenly wants to go to the store and get some chocolate* Well, there went my dieting….. lol 😆May 29, 2010 at 1:47 am #816213twindragonsmumParticipant
Nope, sorry to disagree with y’all… but Scharffenber extra dark is pure heaven. Especially in chocolate pots de creme *drool* Now I gotta call dad and see if he’ll make me some for my birthday 😀

I’m another Lindt lover – milk chocolate in particular. I have a very soft spot for Guylian sea shells, and when I can get my relatives in France to send me some, it’s the Suchard rochers.
I also can snarf down a box of Ferrero rochers (with Nutella in them). For the American/English chocolat, Cadbury Mini-Eggs all the way!
Ok, now I’m in withdrawal… nice going, guys!
Read my books! Volume 1 and 2 of A Dragon Medley are available now.

I love Lindt, Cadbury (hate hate hate that they’re being bought out by stupid American company!), Milka, and Ritter makes a couple that I really like (the Cappuchino, and the Dark w/ Marzipan!) as well. I just discovered NewTree a couple weeks ago; the Milk Choc. w/ Apricot is to DIE FOR! Newman’s Own makes a great mocha/milk choc. bar, too. Oh, and I also love the Endangered Species chocolate — their milk w/ almonds and dark w/ espresso are particularly good.
Living down the street from an international grocery store really spoiled me as regards chocolate; after three years of imported Swiss and Belgian and German stuff, I can’t eat a Hershey’s bar — all I taste is wax. 🙂Zephyr wrote:

Interested in buying or trading for: GB Pebble Sitting Red Fox in dark grey, Lap Dragon Test Paints (Water Sprite, Glacial Pearl, Opulence, Pastel Rainbow, and many others - see my Classifieds ad), Blue Morpho OW, GB Pebble Loaf dragons in blue/aqua/teal, and Griffin Test Paints (Black Rainbow or Frosted Jade).June 28, 2010 at 4:45 pm #816216siberakh1Participant
I like Milka (from when I was in Austria), Gertrude Hawk’s dark chocolate with raspberry smidgeons (best dark chocolate/raspberry combo I’ve tried so far), and random other stuff, usually hand made. I’m more of a milk chocolate person myself. Lindt is ok, but sometimes, just a good ol’ Hershey bar tastes pretty good, or some M&Ms. Depends on what I’m in the mood for I guess.June 29, 2010 at 7:27 am #816217MariaParticipant
Having lived across the hill from the Lindt chocolate factory most of my life, how can I suggest anything else? Though I have to add that Cailler milk chocolate is excellent, Sprüngli handmade chocolates are fabulous and the cheap-o “Budget” brand from Switzerland’s biggest grocery chain is surprisingly good. But for pure variety, Lindt takes the cake. Their latest creation with caramel and salt is a dream.
I don’t like Cadbury’s, and while Hershey’s isn’t much of a chocolate I do enjoy it for being a taste of America. 😀July 6, 2010 at 4:35 am #816218Skigod377Participant
Hmmmm Lindt. I love those chocolate truffles wrapped in red foil. Yummmmmmmy.July 6, 2010 at 4:44 am #816219KoishiiKittyParticipant
