Chocolate Tasting - Round Six

And I bet you thought the whole chocolate tasting thing had vanished off the face of the earth!  Truth is I haven't been eating much chocolate lately. It started with not having any with me during the trip to Cape May. And I just didn't get back in the "habit" once I returned and life got crazy.  But I have eaten one bar...


Oh Yeah, the Green & Blacks was up for consideration.  Similar to the chocolate from Barcelona, this one was a straight up solid dark chocolate bar. 70% cacao.  No fillers or flavors, just chocolate.

Not bitter, not sweet at all. Just dark chocolate. The melt factor was okay. Not outstanding, but it'll do - better than Barcelona. I'll give it an 8/10.  I think I prefer my chocolate a little sweeter. Dove still wins. :)

G&B's white does it for me ~ divine!

After what you said previously...thought you might find this not quite sweet enough...I prefer the flavoured G + B chocolate.

Good to see this one got 8/10 Cheri! I always find dark chocolate hard to eat a lot in one go; if I really want a sugar binge then I need to go for something sweeter. Cadbury's Dairy Milk usually.

I love G&B chocolate and I even have a G&B cook book!

I was just thinking about your chocolate comparison the other day when I bought a bar of the Green & Black.

I was wondering if I had missed some posts - glad to see I haven't as I have enjoyed sharing your tastings :0)

Catching up on some blog reading today - I could definitely use some chocolate, the really sweet kind! :>)

Ah, I was wondering where the chocolate had gone to!

I love Dove Dark, but if you gotta have higher than 72% cocoa, like I do according to my trainer, the best dark chocolate is Trader Joe's brand. It has a really good melt factor (and I start it from a frozen state) and not a very bitter aftertaste. If you have a Trader Joes and want to try some of the higher cocoa content chocolate, go for their 72% dark bar... I've tried a lot and it's hands down my favorite!
