@sweetchiquita12:  Ferrero Rocher – not really a bar but it’s my favorite chocolate.

Or Kit Kat’s.  At halloween time there were these chocolate skulls with pop rocks in them, those were pretty awesome!

I love bitter dark chocolate!  Baking chocolate is my favorite.

God, so many!  Where to even begin?

Let me start with the hardest to find for me – Novi Cioccolato Gianduja.  Any brand gianduja, really, but this was the brand I was first introduced to – basically a softish bar of hazulnutty heaven that tastes like Nutella/Ferrero Rocher with whole hazelnuts in it.  I also like gianduja bars without whole nuts in them.

My favourite kind of candy in general is Japanese candy, and they make AWESOME chocolate.  My favourite would be the (I think Meiji brand) Ghana milk chocolate.  Smooth as sin, and the chocolate flavour is SO pure and heady!

I am also addicted to a local chocolate made by the nicest lady – her company is called Brook’s Delectable Chocolates. (I’m not affiliated to her and certainly not getting paid for mentioning her.)  She makes chocolate almond brittle and it is DIVINE.  She used to only make it with milk chocolate but now also makes a dark version – I prefer the original.  The brittle is SO buttery and SO mapley – omg, I swoon just thinking about it.  I’d trade affection for her chocolate. 😛

In terms of more mainstream stuff, I love Lindt’s pure dark chocolate bars (you know, the huge, honkin’ ones that are like 700g or something), Kit Kat, Coffee Crisp (YUM!), Mint Aero, Hershey’s Mint Cookie…*sigh*

Anything that isn’t American chocolate, it is pure waxy garbage.

During a trip to Europe we stopped in Brussels and I had the MOST amazing chocolate ever. It wasn’t a specific brand but rather a small shop within the main town square. To die for!

I am not a huge chocolate/candy eater.  Now give me a chocolate cheesecake, I’m in heaven.  If I had to choose, it would be mint chocolate! 


@ChicFoodist:  I just saw your Hershey’s mint cookie, I have never heard of such a thing.  Is this it?!?  Never seen it, probably a good thing!

Ferrero Rocher is pure delight. My absolute favourite.

I also really like Lindt chocolate truffles and Lindt’s Pettites Desserts, I actually work beside the Lindt store, and I stock up when they are having sales. I’m out right now 🙁

@sweetchiquita12:  *sigh* I haven’t been able to find it in Canada or online!  The closest is just other brands of gianduja I’ve found in little Italian delicatessen stores…I think the last one I bought is Zanzibar brand (in case you’re in Toronto, it’s in a little store on Yonge between Eglinton and Davisville).  Holy moly, it was like $8 for one bar that was perhaps 8″ X 1.5″ X 0.5″, but it was totally worth it!

I always pop into little Italian shops whenever I see one just to check.  There’s another store that sells gianduja at Yonge & Eglinton called Pasquale, but they only stock it during Christmas and they don’t sell it in bars but in boxes or bags of individually-wrapped pieces (which is great for portion control but not great for gleeful gorging).

Ooh, since we’re not limited to bars, I must add Almond Rocca, Maltesers (so addicted!), and recently, I discovered a delicious baking chocolate that my SO’s mom used in a cake.  I can’t remember what brand it was, but it was from No Frills, she said, and had a silvery grey packaging. 😛

I am addicted to Reases.  Anything with peanutbutter and chocolate has me sold.  When I was in Europe for 4 months one of my care packages was Reeses everything!  Between that and the homemade cookies, I think my mom proved she loved me more than anyone else’s parents!

In a tie for first is Dairy Milk carmel.  If I find a market that sells the real stuff (streight from the UK) I am in heaven!

I am not a huge chocolate person, but when I have a craving I am a total snob about it. I used to work at a local chocolate factory so naturally my favorite chocolate is from there. My recent favorite is their dark chocolate covered caramels sprinkled with seasalt.

Chocolate is basically like breathing to me. Haha, well not quite, but that’s one thing that would be very difficult to ever give up. 

Favourites are three way tied: Reese’s Peanut butter cups, especially the mini ones, Crispy Crunch bars or Cookies ‘n Cream white chocolate bars.

BUT…this is the best ever milk chocolate bar in my opinion. SOO good. Norwegian company (but is actually owned by Kraft, my good friend Google just taught me!)

My favorite is Taza- stone ground chocolate the way chocolate was originally made. Nothing but cocoa, sugar, and natural flavorings (vanilla, cinnamon, chocolate, chili, ginger, almond, etc). You can get them at most Whole Foods, I think- they are little disks. They aren’t smooth like European chocolates, but the complexity of flavor is amazing. Try the Coco Besos if you can get it- coconut!

We really like the Cailler that my parents’ neighbor brings back from Switzerland, too. Definitely only the dark stuff though- milk is too sweet and white chocolate isn’t even chocolate!
