Chocolate

Recommended Posts

Merry Meg mentioned "good chocolate" in another thread. That got me to wondering how y'all define "good"? Since Meg brought it up, the question is directed primarily to the ladies out there, but guys can chime in too.

 

I'm partial to dark, semi sweet stuff. I'm also a sucker for dark fudge.

 

So what is it -- Hershey bar, truffles, white, dark, sweet, semi sweet, etc.?

I likes the dark stuff.

 

 

We have a unique enterprise in the Springfield, Mo area. A lawyer has quit his practice and gone into the chocolate business.

 

He goes to chocolate producing areas and buys direct from the producers. He returns the beans to Missouri for processing. This has gone over well enough that he has intern associates from Drury University and similar programs with area high schools.

 

Here's his website.

For my taste, it's hard to be a Hershey bar.

 

My wife is partial to dark chocolate, especially if it's tinted with a little coffee.

 

Olive & Sinclair is a small chocolatier out of Nashville that makes some premium stuff at reasonable prices. I wish they had better distribution but they're jus a regional place for now.

 

Newman's Own is a good brand that's national.

 

For a really neat flavor, try a dark chocolate bar that's flavored with a little cayenne. Yes, I'm talking about hot peppers. The flavor is really, really good when you're in the mood for something out of the ordinary.

Being as how I'm still just a big kid, you shouldn't be surprised to hear this. Hershey's syrup in milk. Gotta have a glass or two everyday.

A few years back we went skiing with some Belgian friends. They brought out a variety of chocolate from home to have with coffee after dinner. I had about 1/2 cup of decaf, but maybe 4 pieces of chocolate ~ and couldn't sleep a wink that night. But they tasted better, richer and more satisfying than ANY kind I've had - Hershey's, See's, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory (to which I am partial).

 

So I'd have to say BELGIAN CHOCOLATE!

Now that's a new one. I'll have to pass that on my missus. She loves the peppers.

I love dark! We went down to Tom's Market and I bought some this year there and it was the best I ever had!!!! Fudge, not so much I ate some on mackinaw island one year and it was so good but I was so sick.. lol... I ate too much of a good thing.

 

Dark on frozen bannas or strawberrys is the best.. lol

Dark Chocolate would be my favorite, the new dark chocolate syrup on mint chocolate chip ice cream is wonderful.

 

I generally prefer my chocolate withOUT nuts.

Here's that link to the folks makin the bacon chocolate bars:

 

http://www.vosgeschocolate.com/category/bacon_candy_bars

 

They have several other flavors too. I got one as a gift from one of my old pyrate reenactor friends (goes good with rum!!!). It's very good but kinda pricey, not something I would do very often even if I could afford to.

Well, I'm on the wagon when it comes to sweets and such....

 

But in my heyday, it was milk chocolate sponge candy from Buffalo, block chocolate (milk & white) from Stutz's in Warrington, PA, and Lindt white chocolate truffles.

 

Oh, and milk chocolate pecan turtles from Strawbridge's in Philly.

 

Mmmmm...I can feel that chocolate melting in my mouth.....

I'm a milk chocolate fan myself. Pair it with peanut butter or peppermint and I am in heaven! I do not care for chocolate ice cream or chocolate milk. I agree with CL See's candy is wonderful. I grew up eating Fanny Farmer's not sure if that is just a midwestern chain but have not heard of them in years.

To paraphrase Will Rogers: I never met a piece of chocolate I didn't like (the includes the "chocolate" in C-Rats).
