I had to do some running around today. My first stop was at Bed Bath & Beyond. As I was checking out, I spotted a display with several different brands of Dark Chocolate bars. Now, I'm a big fan of Dark Chocolate. I noticed a few things right off the bat:
Ghiradelli 72% $2.79 + tax
Lindt 70% $2.19 + tax
Hersey's 60% $2.59 + tax
I settled on the Lindt, as I doubt I could taste a difference in 2% of the mix, and the fact that Lindt is cheaper.
The sales clerk was obviously concerned about quality of the product, as he didn't want me to accidentally drop and break the bar. Of course, I told him I was going to break that bar as soon as I could
This is DEFINITELY Dark Chocolate. It's not to bitter, and not to sweet. It took me a bit to get used to it, then I started noticing a "sweet" taste that was somewhat like honey or raspberry.
I would definitely buy this again, especially if I was making something that calls for dark chocolate.
