    I dont like the mouth feel of the bakers chocolate, it is not pleasant to me so I go with Lindt 70% or 85% prefer the 70. Also in Canada you can get the Life brand from pharmaprix/shoppersdrugmart and it is the best quality I have ever tried and cheep. made with little African slave children probably.

      No idea, unfortunately! Orlando doesn't have a Trader Joe's.

        Perfect timing with the chocolate posts! Introducing it back into my diet to see how it's going to impact my fat loss and maintenance experiments. I adore the flavor of 85% Green and Blacks, but found roasted cacao nibs to be quite flavorful as well. I picked up a Lindt 90 bar for snacking this week. I'd love to find some 99% bars, I've got to go exploring for sure!

          Theos does not include soy lecithin in it's bars. But it is pricey. However, one bar lasts me a whole week. My fave is the chili dark chocolate.

            Ok, I found some of that 100% Godiva chocolate. Ate some and it was just...meh. The chocolate flavor was good and strong, but overall it was sort of boring, like just cocoa powder. I think that 99% World Market bar is very very tasty, and somehow tastes much sweeter by comparison.

              The best dark chocolate is the dark chocolate you make yourself. Take virgin coconut oil, melt it in a double boiler with vanilla extract, add baker's chocolate (unsweetened cocoa mass), add coconut sugar til you get the desired sweetness. From there, spice it accordingly. Cayenne, sea salt, chili powder, a touch of instant coffee...the only limit is your imagination. I can't eat store bought chocolate bars after making my own. Lindt, Green & Blacks, Ghirardelli...all tastes like junk by comparison.
              Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

                bleh, I can't do higher than 75%. My go-to chocolate is Theo Chocolate which, lucky me, the factory is right down the street! I did splurge and buy $8/bar chocolate from Dick Taylor Chocolate (out of CA) and Dandelion Chocolate (also out of CA). Contains no dairy, soy, nut, or gluten. Only 2 ingredients-- cocoa and sugar. Aaaaaaahhhh-mazing!!!! Totally worth it.

                  Rawganic have a delicious one. It's high in carbs (almost 50g per 100g) but rich enough to only need a couple of pieces. might be an aussie only brand though.

                    I used to use the Endangered Species 88%, graduated to Lindt 90%, and occasionally use the Lindt 99% (although I don't like the texture of that as much as the 90%). I dislike the fruity ones. I don't think raw cacao is the superfood that people think it is.

                      Lindt 85% and Ghirardelli 86%. Two for $4 seems pretty cheap to me.

                          Some of the best chocolates I've had:

                          Amano (https://www.amanochocolate.com/dark-chocolate)
                          Taza (Stone Ground Bars | taza chocolate store)
                          Madécasse (Madécasse Chocolate | Madagascar Chocolate)
                          Vosges (Vosges Gourmet Chocolate Exotic Candy Bars, Mix 'n' Match, Mo's Dark and Milk Bacon, Barcelona, Naga, Amalfi, Red Fire)

                          Out of all of these, the Taza 87% dark Bolivian chocolate is probably my favorite. Because it's stone ground, there's a grit to it, and it's got a very unique, fruity flavor. It's pretty expensive ($10 a bar at Whole Foods), but it's worth it.
                          I tried some Taza recently and also thought it was delicious. I wondered if the texture was from sugar as that was the second ingredient listed on the ones I tried. Those little round ones... Yummy!
                          Breathe. Move forward.

                          I just eat what I want...

                            I think it's because the cacao is ground and not tempered, so it retains a grainy texture.

                              Theo is the best dark chocolate I've ever tried in my life. I usually have a very poor palate and can't differentiate between different quality levels in many things, but the moment I tried this I instantly noticed a difference. The ingredients are high quality (no soy lecithin) and it's fair trade and organic and whatnot.

                              On another chocolate note, why is Green&Blacks so often touted here? Every time I check the labels of their dark chocolate, there are always weird ass ingredients like milk and soy and other things I can't remember off the top of my head. Why do so many folks recommend this brand?
