But, to be honest, the stuff I've made with the Ghiradelli has been great (including flourless chocolate cake and molten chocolate cakes.)

Thanks again to everyone for their input!
Wow! I wish I had a TJ around here. I pay 2.59 for a 4 oz bar of Ghirardelli at the one supermarket here that carries it, making it more expensive than Callebaut. The cheapest I've found is at Walmart - 1.56 for a 4 oz bar.

I've also had consistently great results with Ghirardelli semi-sweet and bittersweet - I use it more than any other chocolate.

Strength is the capacity to break a chocolate bar into four pieces with your bare hands - and then eat just one of the pieces.

The TJs near me used to be at the local mall........then, last november, it moved to a shopping center just behind my house. I'm there all the time. My son likes to go and get stickers (the give the kids stickers) and, he likes to try the food they offer.

The had also had the best price on butter (good to know for bakers).......then it went way up. Then it came down and now the price is up again. Wal-Mart has the best price on butter.

Anyway.......happy baking. Today's endeavor is chocolate sorbet. it's chilling in the fridge. once thoroughly chilled, i can put it in the ice cream maker.

Have a good day!
