Well I just tasted two chocolates from "Felchlin" of Switzerland...good chocolate...any opinions on them?

I tried their 65% from Sur del Lago(venezuela) and their 74% from the Dominican Republic...Dominican Republic was probably my favorite...lots of nice flavor...

Anyone else try these?

The Felchlin brand of Switzerland is not very available in the USA so many probably haven't had it but I am working with a distributor at the moment to try to get it into the USA to where the consumer can buy it....once that happens I recommend trying some!

Have a great day,
Robert

Well I just got a chance to try El Rey's Gran Saman 70% from Venezuela again. I haven't tasted this bar in probably a year but I love it. The only way I can describe it is that it brings me back to the rain forest. The smell, taste, and texture through me right smack dab in the middle of the rain forest because it captures all the flavors and smells that accompany that area. Beautful "primal" type bar. The texture is rough but it matches the flavor...beautiful bar and beautiful brand....anyone else have an opinion on this bar or brand?

Have a good one,
Robert Noel

I usually use ghiradelli around the house for my experiments in chocolate and pastry. At work the semi-sweet we use is from Madagascar, though for wine dinners sometimes we'll special order swiss chocolate. I believe we also ordered some valrhona chocolate as a special request on one occasion.

Wilbur ChocolateHaving recently been introduced to Wilbur's Buds from a choclatier in Philladelphia, at this point I'm firmly in the Wilbur's camp. If I actually believed in the possibility of sin, then these would rank quite close.

I'm sorry but I just can't go past Cadbury's chocolate. I always have been and always will be a Cadbury's girl.
