    Alter Eco blackout review:
    rich, mysterious, sexy... like a black woman whose skin is as dark as midnight, and the darker the skin, the more beautiful she is (sorry if that offends anyone, I think super black skin is gorgeous. If I was born black, I'd hope for skin like midnight)

    yeah, I really like this one

      Reviving this thread because Trader Joe's has done something wonderful.

      Primal peppermint patties.

      Three ingredients: honey, dark chocolate, mint oil. That's it.

      The center is whipped honey with peppermint oil, and the whole shebang is dipped in unsweetened (I think) dark chocolate. Holy crap, people. Unless these are the TJ's version of a product out there already, I think I may need to buy a crapton before they are inevitably discontinued. They are so. good. peeps.

      Here's a link with a review:

            Aw. Sorry.

            I take it back! They're terrible! You definitely wouldn't like them! I'm buying them up to save people from them!

            Totally lying. They're amazaballs.

                My brother bought me back a Galler bar from Belgium. Best chocolate I've tasted.

                Lindt 90 goes down nicely as well - that bitter taste along with strong vanilla.

                    The best chocolate I ever had in my life is from Marcolini in Brussels. OMFG it's like heaven. For a long time you could only get it in his store (which, my husband said, is more upscale than any snooty jeweler he's ever visited), but now there is internet ordering, but only delivery to Europe - bummer. he ships in dry ice, apparently and only at certain times of the year. That's a serious chocolatier! I think I have one bar left...I will probably break down in tears when it's gone.

                      June, thanks for posting that... I now use this as motivation!
                      I've been a bit slack lately and have decided to be strict with my eating this month (none of these 'but it's a wedding!', 'but it's a birthday party' 'but I've been so good this week' excuses!) so I've decided to go to his shop in Brussels if I'm really good with myself and follow pretty much 100% primal this month. Luckily it's just a 3 hour drive for me Also, his cheapest delivery rate is to Luxembourg so that's pretty cool...
                      No worries, I'm still allowing myself my 99% Michel Cluizel bar every now and then - delish!

                        I've looked at many dark chocolate bars but they all have sugar. Have you found any that don't?

                            Lucky to live in Toronto where we get SOMA chocolate at the source.

                            They're known for microbatching, which is roasting, refining and conching their organic fair trade beans right in their store.

                            I always have a few bars of their Arcana stored at home. It's made from beans from Bolivia, Madagascar, Haiti, and Hawaii.

                            From their site: "Made with 4 types of flavour grade cacao beans. The cocoa is roasted, refined, and conched without the addition of sugar emulsifiers or flavourings. The wild raw taste of this 100% chocolate may bring about an unexpected change of consciousness."

                              Since this is a recipe forum, does anyone have any Primal recipes for making our own chocolate?
                              With Stevia or Erythritol, etc, instead of sugar or honey? Thanks!

                                Basic ingredients: cacao butter, cacao powder, sugar, and oil (coconut would be a good candidate)
