Total Travesty


Posted in: News & New Product Press

hello all,Yes, it is rather scary to think of Cadbury being the largest seller of chocolates in many countries. It has been years since I touched the stuff, but my education into the world of good dark chocolate was late in coming.I hope more will become educated as to the antioxidants and good properties in better quality chocolate, it would be nice to see.for all your fave sweets, chocolate and more....candy

Cocoa butter and cocoa solids


Posted in: Tasting Notes

hello all,This sounds a trifle complicated, but good to know. I personally prefer many other brands above Lindt, I find them a little dry. Has anyone tried the Bernard Callebaut chocolate?He makes it with the French traditional style and it is very good. I am not sure how much cocoa butter is in it, come to think of it.for fun and good taste too....candy
