I buy the Lindt Excellence 90% for $2/bar regularly, but last week I found a bar of 99% at World Market that had nothing bad in it, and it was delicious. Not bitter at all; tasted even sweeter than the Lindt. I don't remember what brand or the price, but I'm going back to buy some more today or tomorrow.
Could have been Lindt Excellence 99% .... picked some up in France last month - YUM!!!!
I don't ask that you like me - all I ask is that you respect my life experiences and i will do the same.
Could that be some formulation they are selling in Italy? The version sold here in NC doesn't have that. Also, I get the 85%... Ive never read the label on the 72%.
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.
It must be great to have such willpower. A 3 ounce bar is 2 servings for me, sometimes one, but I have found ways to cut my chocolate expense in half so I am only paying $1.50/bar, and days when I eat a lot of chocolate I cut back on other carbs so I guess it is okay.
