Barbara, Tax lady and Addie,

Thanks for all your lovely replies. Always a pleasure to hear from you all.

I am a Sprüngli woman, and I also like Lindt. Unfortunately, I have never had Sees or Chocolate Gifts mentioned by Barbara and Tax lady.

Though, a Godiva is lovely too ... Amongst numerous Italian chocs.

Have nice evening.
Margi.

Tinlizzie,

Lindt ! Swiss Sprüngli is the parent and owner of Lindt ...

Thanks for your feedback. Yes, I too like to purchase from a local Chocalatier and find out all the new trends, types, fillings, shapes, textures etcetra ...

Kind regards.
M.C.

just what i needed--i've accidentally discovered a wonderful american-made chocolate on the market!! the chocolate is belgian, but made in boulder colorado, employing classic european chocolate-creating methods. the cocoa content ranges from 33-77%, and there are 24 different flavors. each bar is fresh wrapped in gold foil paper, and each contains a classic love poem written in the inner wrapper. (sigh) romance goes so naturally with quality chocolate, i think. i chose the semi-sweet chocolate bars, one with almonds and sea salt, the other a delicious dark chocolate with freeze-dried raspberry bits, mmmm....very affordable, too, these chocolove bars.
i found chocoloves at relay, a local food company that delivers my groceries. amazon carries some flavors of this chocolate too, but there are better prices online elsewhere....

Hmmm, maybe I will have to look into this one.

Vit, I didn't realize the name was Chocoloves, thought that was YOUR pet name for them! They sound delish.

Lindt here also.

Godiva has lost its appeal to a lot of Americans. Dove has gone too commercial. My 7-11 always have those Hershey mini bars of dark chocolate for 25 cents each. I always have to buy one when I go there. I love any dark chocolate.

For a special treat I like Alethea's.

Build Your Own Custom Box of Fresh Handmade Chocolates, Sponge Candy, Chocolate Truffles, Chocolate Popcorn, Turtles, Charlie Chaplin - Alethea's Chocolates - Alethea's Chocolates

My all time favorite childhood treat is:

Ice Cubes, 82 count

For everyday "drug store" chocolate I like Ferrero Rocher or Dove.

It's all good!

Handmade chocolates made in the back of small boutiques is my favourite.
