    Best Dark Chocolate

    Primal Fuel
    I read the "Is It Primal" post which contains information about soy lecithin. In short: it isn't primal, but in small amounts "isn't too bad" for you. After reading that I went looking for dark chocolate that doesn't contain any soy lecithin. There are options, however, everything I've found is ridiculously expensive.

    Has anyone found inexpensive, yet still good quality, dark chocolate which doesn't contain soy lecithin?

    The other day I found Lindt Excellence 85% extra dark for $2 a bar at TJMaxx. It contains no soy lecithin.

    With that said, my favorite is Green and Black's 85%, but I can't find that one below $3 a bar. When it comes to treats like that, I only buy them once in a while, because my grocery bill adds up very fast.

    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.

    Anything in two digits is weaksauce. Try the Ghiradelli 100% dark chocolate.

    All riiiight Someone on board with me with that bar It is quite fruity - I love it!

    Usually if I want a cheap bar, I buy one of those for $3 at Whole Foods (4 oz!) or a standard Lindt bar for $2.50. I am also a fan of Green and Black's (I think the 85% doesn't have soy lecithin) for $3 because their chocolates are extremely rich, making your $$ stretch out more.

    Epiphany: I bet it's in the baking aisle, not the chocolate aisle. I'll check there. Seriously, though, I wonder if it can be any tastier than the 99% World Market bar. Sounds like a side-by-side taste test is in order! Will update.

    I've never found anything over 85% where I am (Australia). I'll check the baking aisle but even there I'm pretty the 'dark' cooking chocolate is 70%.

    I eat a lot of raw chocolate at the moment, it is pretty expensive though. I also have raw cacao butter which I add to smoothies and things sometimes. I guess 100% chocolate tastes similar?
