The local stores stopped carrying Droste, which was my old standard. So, I went hunting for a new standard. Found it!

Vivani 85%. Try it if you get a chance. Smoothest 85% I've tasted yet, and very low carb for a chocolate bar.

I'm a huge fan of El Rey for baking (I make a decent frosting with it to cover the whole wheat chocolate cake).

I buy the wife a Godiva milk chocolate bar every day on the way out of work

and I'm a fan of Green and Black

Dagoba too

and a few other names that escape me.

Personally, I like the ones that push just a little bit. Not too wild, but enough to get me interested in new flavors, like the one I had the other day that had curry in it.

Important news for chocolate fans.

The good dark chocolate bars are usually about $1/ounce. And there aren't many good online sources for them.

Amazon is now offering Cote D'or 86% bars for about $0.57/ounce:

Amazon.com: Cote D'or Dark 86% Brut Chocolate Cocoa, 3.5-Ounce Bars (Pack of 10): Gourmet Food

And they currently have a special $25 off $59 deal that brings that down to $0.33/ounce if you don't mind buying in bulk.

This is pretty good Belgian chocolate. Definitely try some at your local store before buying 30 bars in bulk, though.

When in NYC or by mail Jacques Torres Chocolate -- Divine chocolate! Pricey, but great for a gift or special occasion, or any occasion.
