I found this at Trader Joes about a week ago. Very good, but contains zero sugar. Not for sweetness addicts.

Tastes similar, but not as bitter.

On a related note, we just found a local store that carries "chocolate wine". Considered by some snobs to be a low-class candy-drink, all I can say is my low-class tastes really like the stuff. The bottle seems to empty kind of quickly tho.

My Great Grand Parents were Cocoa Barons in Vinces, Ecuador. Very Wealthy. Owned acres and acres of Cocoa Plantations. My Mom's family still own several plantations but not to that extent. I think in order to be considered a fine chocolate, it has to include something like 12% Ecuadorian chocolate. Kallari is a great chocolate bar but I like Republica de cocoa. Expensive but so good!!!!

Our Products – Republica del Cacao

Agree here too.

Thats how I've found american chocolate to be too, far too sweet to the point that they make your eyes roll up in the back of your head and get instant level 2 diabeetus.

I've tried japanese chocolate with Green tea flavouring, best stuff ever but the size of the bars are tiny!

I grew up eating Freddo Frogs and Wagon Wheels.

We're keeping the good stuff for ourselves. Not sure which American candies you guys get. I mean if it's Mars or Hershey group, then your real hope lies in Scharffenberger.

My daily driver of chocolate is TJ's pound plus dark. It's definitely not the best stuff, but the price-to-quality ratio hits me right.

I used to love Cadburys Wispa's but I found they started getting quite bitter.
I am now into Cadbury's Twirls which taste better.
