    I've yet to try anything darker than 85%, but I really want to.

    They were out of 85% dark chocolate the last time I went shopping, so I grabbed a couple bars of 70-75% (can't remember exactly what it was). Way too sweet. It's going to take me forever to finish them.

    I'll have to check this out! The other place that often has very good chocolate for a low price is Canned Food Outlet/Grocery Outlet. I just picked up several bars of the Lindt 70% Cocoa at $1.50 per 3.5 oz bar.

    For those of you who hesitate to try the 85 plus range because it lacks the sweetness you're accustomed to, I suggest sampling Endangered Species Panther Bar. It's an 88%, but it's unusually sweet for that level. Scharffen Berger's 82% is also fairly sweet for the 80's.

    I did a taste test last night of the 85% Lindt and the 86% Ghirardelli Midnight Reverie. The Ghirardelli was slightly more palatable to me. It was sweeter but at this level of cocoa percent, that is a good thing as it gives some balance. I'll have to try out those other two as well.

    I do have the cookbook and have noticed the other day some chocolate chips. I guess I better get reading!

    The World Market 99% bar is my favorite "affordable" bar, too. I REALLY love Green & Black's, but it's out of my price range for frequent consumption.

    FWIW, Lindt tastes sweeter to me than other brands of the same percentage, due to its vanilla flavor.
