What is your favourite brand of chocolate?

  1. Thinking about chocolate is making my mouth water.

    Anyway, I've eaten Leonidas, Godiva, Neu Haus (sp?), Valrhona, Guittard (make great choc chips), Scharffen Berger, Ghiradelli, Harry and David, See's Candies, Lake Champlain Chocolates, Rowntrees and Cadbury's (I grew up in the UK so they will always be special to me), Nestle, Milka (I think that's what its called, has a lilac packet), Droste, Lindt, Ferrero Rocher (sp?) . Could be other brands but can't remember.

    So where is Hersheys? Well regular Hershey bars and their kisses are awful, but they are trying to go upscale and have brought out 60% cocoa chocolate which is not bad at all, I really like it.

    But my favourite is..... Leonidas. Its a Belgian brand. They have delicious truffles, pralines, ganaches, creams etc.

    BTW I LOVE dark chocolate.
  2. Wow, what a list!:drool: I also like godiva...I haven't tried half as many as you. :shrugs: I also like Martine's and Ethel M.
  3. godiva, Valrhona , leonidasand lindt
  4. Nestle, Milka (though sometimes I find it a little too sweet), Toblerone, Cadbury's

    Hershey's Symphony chocolate..because it has toffee bits in it.
  5. I like godiva.
  6. I also don't like Hersheys Chocolate. My favorite are:


    Milk, Dark, White, no sugar - it's all good to me!!
  7. Vosges Haute - odd flavors like chili, olive, etc.

    I know someone who works at See's & they use high frutose corn syrup instead of sugar.
  8. Really! Well I'll never eat them again then.

    I heard/read that high fructose corn syryp is more detrimental to the body than normal sugar. Thanks for the info.

  9. godiva no doubt!!!
  10. La Maison du Chocolate
    Christoper Norman

    You have to try those guys are well.
  11. Yesterday I was shopping at Macy's. I was paying for my item and they have boxes of Godiva 2-truffle sets next to the cashier. While waiting for the lady to finish the checkout, I just picked one box up and checked it out.

    I can believe Godiva uses partially hydrogenated oil in their truffles.
  12. Frango chocolates are pretty good too. It's a Midwestern thing.
  13. Godiva in Europe is better. Godiva in the US is made in New Jersey! And it's sweeter....
