Chocolate
To deviate from the other topic where chocolate has come up...

As I've said, I live practically within a stone's throw from Hershey, PA. As such, I'm a huge fan of their chocolate. I've had Godiva, Wilbur buds, Lindt, Ghiradelli, Dove...

I've had various other types as well including German chocolate (thanks 'hoku!) however, at least to my taste buds, Hershey's is simply the best.

(Also skorpio, at least in the US, Hershey's actually makes Cadbury chocolate. The Cadbury name is still on the wrapper, but it's manufactured by Hershey's.)

I personally don't like bitter things, so while I do eat dark and white chocolate (if it's chocolate, I'll try it!), my favorite is still the creamy richness that is milk chocolate.

I don't intend to debate whose chocolate is superior as we're never all going to agree, particularly since those of you in Eurpoe obviously prefer European chocolate and I, as an American, prefer American chocolate. I just thought a thread dedicated to all things chocolatey might be fun. So, share which type you prefer and why. (And recipes are good too!)

Re: Chocolate
White chocolate is technically not chocolate <!-- sTongue --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- sTongue --> I prefer dark and milk chocolate, but dark is my favorite. I'm a fan of hershey's, ghirardelli, and lindt. No one does milk chocolate like hershey's, but their dark chocolate just doesn't do it for me. Ghirardelli and lindt reign supreme for dark, and nothing beats a lindt straciatella truffle *yum*.

Re: Chocolate
There was a place called Moonstruck Cafe in a local mall that had what they called Mayan truffles - dark chocolate with peppers. It was so good...but they closed shop. T.T

These days, our chocolate eating is largely a matter of opportunity. I found a pepper-and-cinnamon chocolate ice cream at Whole Foods recently that is yum, and I love chocolate gelato. Ghirardelli's brownie mix (Costco sized packages FTW) and Whole Foods' chocolate bombs and chocolate mousse for two are also delicious.

Re: Chocolate
I have two requirements of my chocolate.

1. Soft and creamy. It should melt within your mouth as if it's "juicy" when you bite it. It should leave stains on your fingers and feel entirely decadent to eat.

2. Dark, but not "too" bitter. I like that little twitch of bitterness in my chocolate, that darkness, and feeling the flavour of "chocolate" not just sugars and fats and sugars and fats and vanilla and fats and so on.
White chocolate makes me sick actually, to bite into.

I've tasted a lot of chocolate that fulfills one but not the other of these requirements. Sometimes you can go "yea, that's alright", but it's not "OH GODS YES GIVE THE F-ING CHOCOLATE!" good.
Icelandic milk chocolate is very light, very sweet, but not totally over the top so and it's maybe the "juiciest" chocolate I've ever found. But Icelandic dark chocolate tends to be a little chalky, and a bit too bitter, all but one.
The baking chocolate from Linda.
It's only 56% but it makes up for that by being the creamiest dark chocolate Ever.
That's my current fav... at least of what I "can" have.

I also like Lindor-balls from lindt. The black ones. omnomnomnomnom dark chocolate with a juicy filling!
Only get those when mum brings 'em from "some foreign country".

I'll make you a deal Archer, send me real Cadbury chocolate and I'll send you real Hershey's milk chocolate. <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin -->

And Min, it sounds like Hershey's new line called Bliss would be perfect for you. Their dark chocolate melts and is very creamy but it's still got the "bite" of dark chocolate.

If I can convert you to the cause I will be more than happy to make a small selection box for you, containing Wispa, Flake, Twirl, Buttons and Dairy Milk - the Cadbury "solid chocolate" selection <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin -->

Re: Chocolate

I knew that.

Personally, I like dark or milk chocolate. And I do actually like the really bitter stuff, although no one else seems to.

Re: Chocolate
I like milk chocolate, but dark chocolate is tasty too. White chocolate not so much though. I’ve tried German chocolate as well, once had an exchange student who brought some with her, and it was really different in taste but still good.

I don’t practically care for one kind over another. There is just ‘good’ chocolate and ’don’t care for’ chocolate to me.

Re: Chocolate
I am so cheap when it comes to my chocolate.

If it's listed as chocolate, I love it. Just that simple. ^_^ Although I've yet to find anything that really beats the simple pleasure of peanut butter M&Ms.
