Thumbs up What's Your Brand Of Chocolate Decadence?

Good Afternoon Ladies and Gentlemen;


As always, a pleasure to hear all your feedback and enjoyable discussions.

I have a few brands of chocolate decadence I truly enjoy.

The first is Sprüngli in Zürich, Switzerland. The Corporation Sprüngli produces a lovely brand stretched product called Lindt ...

The other is lauded for its rich delicious blend of dark cacoa with hits of spices and is called Green & Black´s Maya Gold Organic Chocolate, from the U.K.

Kindest.
Margi. Cintrano.

Lindt peanut butter and chocolate truffles are on my short list . I don't care for Green and Blacks especially the Sea Salt or Chili ones.

To be honest, I am not a big chocolate lover at all. Every so often, I'll eat a chocolate chip cookie or three, but it's not something I go out of my way for. It's always kind of puzzled me when I see people go gaga over the stuff. My wife is one of those. She loves everything chocolate and has even been known to jaywalk through 10 lanes of busy traffic if there is a chocolatier on the other side of the street.

There is a brand of Belgian chocolate that she likes quite a bit, but I can't remember the name of it for the life of me.

I love Ghirardelli and Lindt dark chocolate in the 70%-72% cocoa range. I also love the Lindt dark chocolate with orange and dark chocolate with chilis. The Ghirardelli raspberry filled dark chocolate squares are a little bit of heaven on earth. Ritter Sport dark chocolate with whole hazelnuts is really good.

For milk chocolate, I love Toblorone. I also like Heath and Skor chocolate covered toffee. Cadbury makes the only plain milk chocolate bar that is worth eating as far as I'm concerned and their Caramello bar is yummy.

I love well made fudge style brownies with almonds or walnuts. My grandmother's recipe for chocolate mayonaise cake is pretty awesome, especially drizzeled with homemade caramel sauce and sprinkled with chopped walnuts.

I love hot chocolate made with cinnamon and vanilla or with a little mint extract added. And a chocolate shake made with a good vanilla ice cream, Hershey's syrup, cinnamon and a dash of cardamom is yummy.

Love the Lindt truffles. All of them. Even the white chocolate is glorious. And Canadian Caramello, luscious. Actually, most Canadian chocolate is wonderful.

I have a buddy who goes to swizterland about once a year and he brings back lindt chocolate bars. They are crazy good and better than the ones available here. They have the same flavors but they must have a different recipe for export.

Any good dark chocolate is perfect. I really like Dove Dark Chocolates. Who am I kidding, offer me chocolate and I will take you up on it.
