Theo is the best dark chocolate I've ever tried in my life. I usually have a very poor palate and can't differentiate between different quality levels in many things, but the moment I tried this I instantly noticed a difference. The ingredients are high quality (no soy lecithin) and it's fair trade and organic and whatnot.
On another chocolate note, why is Green&Blacks so often touted here? Every time I check the labels of their dark chocolate, there are always weird ass ingredients like milk and soy and other things I can't remember off the top of my head. Why do so many folks recommend this brand?
I'm surprised at the perception I read earlier that $3.00 a bar is expensive. I get four servings out of a bar (it says 2.5, I mean four satisfying servings), so as a contributor to a meal when I mainly eat meat, it's one of the cheaper things I eat.

My Green & Black's 85%, Organic/Fair trade, (bought at Walmart for ~$3) has organic chocolate, organic cocoa butter, organic cocoa, organic raw cane sugar, organic vanilla extract. It's my favorite dark chocolate.

70% or lower usually contains soy lechithin, including Green & Blacks. My hubby will pick up 85% for me, which doesn't have the soy. There is a 70% that I can get at the 99 Cents store, it's French, and doesn't contain soy and costs .99 (shocking, I know).
A favorite sweet of mine is Heavenly Organics peppermint patties, just dark chocolate, white honey, and peppermint oil.
My all time fav chocolate bar is Theos, which is delicious, smooth, and comes with almonds or coconut (along with a plethora of other add ins).
