    Cost Plus World Market 99% chocolate

    Score! Someone posted a few weeks ago about reviewing many of the very dark (100% or near it) chocolates on her personal blog. I looked for the post here but couldn't find it. Anyway, she recommended the Cost Plus 99% as a good everyday bar (just $2 for 3oz) and so I tracked it down today. It is quite good! I have tried Ghirardelli's 100% baking chocolate and there is no comparison; Cost Plus makes that bar seem inedible.

    The World Market 99% really does give great bang for the buck.

    And that might have been my chocolate livejournal:

    Chocolate is the boss of me.

    I found the Cost Plus 99% a bit too much taste wise. I just could not eat it. Instead I've opted for the Trader Joes Organic 72% chocolate. It's still quite dark and organic which is a plus and also $2 a bar. Anything over 85% is just too much for me taste wise to deal with.

    Heheh, opposite for me: anything less than 85% cocoa starts tasting like I'm eating pure sugar. In fact even though I consider myself a chocoholic, there's a bar of 85% dark Lindt in the pantry that I can't bring myself to finish. I'll chip away at it from time to time when I'm desperate, grabbing a square when I'm all out of the 90% stuff. But I've probably gone through about 15 of the 90% bars in the time it's taken me to eat 1/2 the 85% bar.

    To each his own!

    Guess I'm somewhere in the middle now ... Have been enjoying Trader Joe's 85% "dark chocolate lover's" bar. I will be making a trip to Cost Plus very soon to try that 99% bar!

    Went out and bought 5 bars of the 99%, with a 10% off coupon. So that's only $1.79 per bar. What a deal! Had a taste--really good. Thanks for the tip

    A bit intense for me. I've eaten 97% and even that's a stretch. I'm happy in the 85-90% range.
    I began this Primal journey on December 30th, 2009 and in that time I've lost over 125 LBS.

    There is a good range for me, between 72 and 85%. The stuff in the 50% range is way too sweet and for whatever reason there are not many bars in the 60% range so I usually go for the bars in the low 70s and mid 80s.
