I'll agree. I'm not one for milk chocolate. The higher the cocoa content the happier I am.
But I've never had about 80(?)%, and I think much higher may be too intense.
75% is the ideal amount for me. I've tried the Lindt 85% but I prefer the 75%...but then again I wouldn't complain if someone gave me a bar of it.

The Lindt concept store/cafe here in Sydney sells a 99% bar, haven't tried it yet. Would be interesting...

I would always bring 20 ~ 1 1/2 lb. Plastic Canisters of Hills Brothers Cocoa from Chicago whenever I went there. I loved Hills Brothers Cocoa and I could reuse the Plastic containers. After I moved to Carbondale in 1985 I couldn't get it any more because our grocery distributers are from Missouri and Hills Brothers does not sell Cocoa west of The Mississipi. I miss it alot.
I like Cadburry Chocolate Cream Eggs and use 2 of them in each Trekken Double Chocolate Fudge Cake instead of 2 Large Eggs. They are great and you don't need regular eggs because they are as sticky inside as regular eggs ~ only they are Chocolate.
Oh yes I use about 3 lbs or so of Cocoa a month. I still miss the Hills Brothers Cocoa, and then Carnation left me so now I have to use Nestles. I just found a canister of Carnation hiding from me. Have a cup [=}~

I like all Cadbury chocolates but my favourite is the Cadbury Crunchie. Nothing like it!

I don't have an active sweet tooth, but chocolate every now and then is nice. I like Belgian chocolate, made with real Belgians. It's the bestest!

Green and Blacks 70% - organic and most of the varieties are fair trade as well. The one with ginger, and the one with dried sour cherries are to die for.

I always make room in my calories for the day to have a wee bit of chocolate!

one word and one letter

I know most of you can't get these, but they are SO good. I believe it would be worth the while of all genuine chocoholics to go to their website and/or call them for a small order of these delights.
