    Candy outlet was a success: Scharffen Berger, Green & Black's, New Tree, Cote D'Or, and Hachez! I haven't tried any of these, so I'm excited to figure out which ones I like the most.

    I typically have some unsweetened dark chocolate (Ghiradelli 100% or SB 99%) every day, but I've found it increasingly difficult to limit myself as I get acclimated to the taste. Looks like they'll have to become a once-a-month treat....

    I love the Green & Blacks 85% one. I only buy it for very special occasions. Last week we went on holiday to a skiing resort, so I bought 100 grams, and ate 20 grams nightly after dinner with a couple of strawberries. It was so yummy but I could see it becoming an addiction so I have decided to only buy it very occasionally.

    I never try to eat the whole bar but I think I can eat the whole bar in two days or less. It is very difficult to eat that much dark chocolate in a day.

    Couldn't do anything close to everyday because even the dark chocolate is sweetened with sugars. Maybe a couple times a month? I do, however, use cocoa powder in dishes all the time. It is probably the most underused and versatile seasoning ever.

    2 squares of Green & Black's 85% every night after dinner. This serving size contains 1g of sugar, the only sugar I consume. Very occasionally I will eat 6-8 squares late in the afternoon, which feels like a binge. More than that at one sitting makes me feel ill.

    I ate a whole bar- 100g of 85% green and black for lunch with just some fruit and I felt alert and strong as always as when I eat a piece of meat instead. Is it bad to eat chocolate as a significant chunk of your diet if I don't experience the ill effects many seem to from lots of dark chocolate? I know the sugar is iffy but I sometimes do unsweetened chocolate instead. Would I be hurting my health in the long run if I consumed a whole bar, 100g of chocolate almost every day?

    One or two bars a week. Usually just eat a whole bar at once, sometimes half now and half later. Always the good stuff, no soy lecithin, dark, sometimes with nuts or other flavor/fruit.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    My n=1 is no. And I don't eat completely shitty chocolate either, and half the time I eat unsweetened.
