Handmade chocolates: Bernard Callebaut
"Commercial" chocolates: Lindt or Milka

I'm not much of a chocolate person, but those are the ones I like to have on occasion.

Bernard Callebaut and just about anything made by Ferrero are high up there on my list. I like little artisan chocolates too, and it seems that as I get older I'm shying more away from candy bars and towards savouring chocolate as is, or in the form of truffles (LOL, but that said I'll always have a few favourite chocolate bars ),

Although I don't indulge that often,
I absolutely LOVE Rheb's chocolates made right here in Baltimore on Wilkens Avenue! I'm sure that the freshness is a big factor. I've tried some of the big name commercial chocolates, but nothing else seems to compair. It's just a small family operation, but to my taste it's the best

I also like Ghiradelli chocolate. I don't use much chocolate just for eating, more for baking, and I have been happy with Ghiradelli's chips.

When I do buy a chocolate bar to eat it's usually just a plain Hershey's. I do like good dark chocolate though.

Another Lindt and Milka fan... also I am a total sucker for Ferrero's Raffaello.. (maybe it wouldn't be classified as chocolate, though... mmm, mmm, good!!)

Dark: Valhrona Guanaja (70%) or Scharffen Berger 70%
Milk: Valhrona Jivara Lactee or Lindt Extra Fine
White: Valhrona Ivoire
Chocolate Chips: Ghirardelli

Personally, for eating, I always choose milk chocolate over dark. Dark is great for baking, but I just can't eat it straight, unless it's melted. Even then, it really needs something to balance it, fresh strawberries being ideal. For the snobs out there who don't acknowledge milk chocolate, I would point out that milk chocolate outsells dark in virtually every country (including Europe) with the exception of France. Clearly the world prefers milk chocolate! And the pinnacle of milk chocolate is Valhrona Jivara. I bought a 6.6 LBS bag of the stuff, and in the end, I nibbled almost all of it away! (it was supposed to be for baking)
