    The Chocolate Connoisseur Thread

    I thought it would be fun to have a thread where we weigh in on different chocolate brands, flavors, grades of darkness, etc. Right now I'm working my way through a Green & Blacks 85% dark bar. It's really fruity. Has a nice snap. Good mouth feel.

    I've tried numerous different brands, and I think that the Green & Black 85% is the BEST. Very silky texture, low sugar, but not bitter. Yum.

    I am also a fan of Green & Black's for the mouthfeel/texture. For a chocolate bar against other 85%s, it has a really rich chocolate taste, possibly from the slightly higher fat content.

    My favorite, by far, though, is Valrhona chocolate, which is a French brand. And if I can ever get my hands on it, Galler chocolate from Belgium.

    Lindt is a strong bar when it comes to price point and availability.

    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.

    Ugh, jealous. At least you have delicious cheese to take your mind off the chocolate

    We'll gladly explain this to anyone but you.

    I've been eating Scharfen-Berger baking chocolate lately. It's labeled as 99% It's annoying to eat though, because it's not packaged for eating, so the pieces are huge and pieces flake off when you bite into it.

    GF won't touch it. We bought a bunch of the Green & Black's 85 bars, which we both like. I find the texture and flavor to be much better than the Lindt 90, but I hear the 99 is on another level still (and priced accordingly).
