          I recently discovered while being in Germany that Lindt has developed a mild version of their 70%, 85% and 90%. They have less acid and are not as bitter and just super yummy. The 85% version beats the Green & Blacks 85% hands down. I have not seen these versions in the UK though.
          I also love Conscious Chocolate, raw organic handmade chocolate, made on a farm in Kent. Their Wild at heart flavour with organic maca, vanilla and wild blue-green algae is incredibly smooth and tastes like Belgian truffle on a High.

                That is my favorite! I found where Mark recommended it. All the other bars with that high percentage taste bitter as heck!
                Love my Green & Black ORGANIC with 85% (WalGreens, WalMart and Amazon sell them).

                Last night, I made the recipe in one of the primal cookbooks from 1 entire bar -- pretty good
                Just from memory: 1 bar Green & Blacks, 1 cup virgin coconut oil, 1/4 c. coconut, 1/4 c. slivered almonds, and DON'T FORGET THE SALT = 1/2 t.
                Melt together and store in frig.

                The salt turns all that chocolate & coconut fat into something delightful.
                It's less-waxy that the original bar, and more tasty too.

                  i'm not a connaisseur of chocolate but i do like a coupla squares every once in awhile. my new favorite is one of the cheepest at WF right now - one called "divine". It's 85%, doesn't cost an arm and a leg & it tastes good, and is fair trade, tho not organic.

                    Ugh, I actually do not care for that one at all. Glad someone else does, though!

                        Trader Joes has a 3 pack of 72% Belgian chocolate bars they sell for a buck 69. I eat it everyday, I am afraid.

                          Dr. Bork Bork... SHhhhhhhhhh!
                          We aren't supposed to talk about THOSE.

                          I've made my own bars (very messy bar things rather) of Lindt 90%, some chili powder, and dried cherries.
                          OMNOMNOMNOMNOM!
                          Not quite as fun as chipotle and the tingle of pop rocks... but very tasty!
                          I've pretty much decided that all chocolate needs some chili of some type answered... pasilla is a good match too as far as adding flavor...

                          And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

                            wow that's interesting. It tastes the same to me as all the other 85%. i guess i really am NOT a connaisseur of chocolate at all! Perhaps this also helps explain why i can eat the same foods day after day while my husband goes bonkers if he has BAS for 5 days in a row.

                              for a while, we were eating green and blacks and occasionally lindt. 85% or whatever. then we found endangered species 85%. very good. then i'd say for the past 6 months or so, it's been exclusively alter eco 85%. this stuff is awesome. and 3 weeks ago, i tried sweetriot 85%. i think i might like it better than the alter eco. it's really close. i'd definitely recommend any of those though

                                Eh, well in general I don't like Ghana bars. Most don't have that peppery bite I'm looking for, and are overwhelming in the earthy taste. To each his own, really. You should try to rotate between different 85% bars and training your palate that way I think this will really help you to appreciate chocolate more so than now xD
