Says it’s from Belgium. I’ve been to Belgium, I had the beer and waffles and fries+sauces, I missed the chocolate. I’ll give it a go.

Anything dark (70%+). Not too snobbish. Some house brands actually taste very good.
Some high end brands have a bitter after taste that ruins everything.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

Just curious as to why this is in the “Led Flashlights-General info” section but I’ll play along anyway.

Hershey’s Dark. Almost any dark xocalatl.

Oddly, Hershey’s Kisses (and presumably most other milk chocolates) to me taste/smell like rancid butter.

Dove, Godiva, etc., rare exceptions to milk chocolate I actually like.

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Forget this “fun size” garbage, gimme one the size of a toilet seat, that’s my “fun size”.

Kit-Kats. Yum.

I’m a milk chocolate person, any good chocolate brand is fine (Lindt, Toblerone, some dutch brands make very tasty chocolate too) and I especially like the distinct taste of Cote d’Or milk chocolate.

I’d scoff any chocolate that isn’t too dark.

Milky Bars and Caramacs are good, also Cadbury Bournville.

Might sound a bit snob but as i have to be very carefull with sugar now i decided to trade unreasonable quantity of industrial  "chocolate" (mostly sugar and palm oil) for low quantity but high quality :

  • dark "grand crus" from Bonnat (Voiron, France)
  • "pralinés" from Pascal Caffet (Troyes, France)

I agree completely with this sentiment Big Smile

If you’re ever in South America, nab yourself a box (or even better, a solid 1kg bar) of these. White, milk or dark, you will NOT regret it.

I haven't bought chocolate in a while, but when I do, I get Hershey's Symphony Bar with Almonds and Toffee Chips.

It's pretty cheap at Walmart.

I forgot to mention KitKat earlier – this brand is one of the more fascinating creations in the chocolate industry. Kitkat is one of the chocolates available across the globe with multiple variants/flavors.

I do like the Hershey’s blocks with Toffee, regular Hershey bar and the LARGE KIT KAT bars only.

Does Kit Kat count as chocolate? I only see it as covered wafers. Still a very tasty treat, but not exactly chocolate IMO.

Anyway, for me it’s not an option. They’re overpriced as balls where I live, and you get far better value for the price with these:

One box costs as little as two Kit-Kat envelopes, and there’s way more than two Kit Kats in there.
