    Not gourmet, but sure hits the spot right now as I type this...

    Ritter Sport Dark Chocolate with Whole Hazelnuts.

    I tried Lindt choc with sea salt recently - that was a yummy discovery. The bar before the Ritter was Equal Exchange with Orange. There are two Lindt 90% sitting in my cupboard.

    Thumper-footed is good!!

    But do you know what really used to get my panties in a bunch? Godiva dark chocolate raspberry crowns - the real kind where the entirely liquid real raspberry flavor just burst in the mouth when your teeth cracked the chocolate... they now make them with some kind of not-half-as-yummy cream filling. I was so disappointed that I stopped buying Godiva....

    At the per-pound price of Godiva, that worked out to about $1 each for the perfect little cylinders.

    I think I am getting old at 45... I am starting to say crazy stuff like "...they don't make them like they used to..."

    I'm going to rock the boat and say that all G&B tastes, to me, like milk powder. I cannot stand the aroma flavour or texture even at 85%. Sorry. Bleugh.
    Until recently I went for 70-80% cocoa but now Lindt Excellence 90% is my bar of choice. The deep hazelnut espresso flavor is such as surprising contrast to the wonderful creamy meltiness of it. I also like the lower cocoa Orange Intense in their range, which has almond slithers too. In the UK we have Montezuma's, they make a great mild bar called Lordy Lord which is 71% with cocoa nibs in a nice chunky premium shape with no portioning, you just have to eat it as it snaps (oh dear!). The nibs are crunchy bitter critters, it's quite addictive. I don't buy it anymore for that reason. Also Cocoloco do a good organic dark bar which is chunky like Cadbury's but I actually don't mind it, it's very fruity and floral, maybe since it's less 'dry' the bigger chunks work a bit better, I do on the whole prefer a thin large square I can nibble on. And I might sound like a complete philistine but Sainsbury's 'Taste the Difference' range 85% ghanaian bar is rather good too, good for eating straight and very nice in puddings, which is handy as it is a little cheaper.

    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.
