I tried this on a whim and holy cow. This is definitely one of the best chocolates I have ever tasted. The flavor is rich and buttery, without being overly sweet. While it's technically dark (72%), it is incredibly smooth and melts in your mouth like milk chocolate. In fact, it slightly melted on my fingertips! I savor this chocolate and see it as a super special treat; I will definitely buy this again - both for myself and as a gift for others.
I first fell in love with this chocolate many years ago when I worked by the NYC store. People think I am crazy for shipping chocolate bars across the country- until they have a piece. It is smooth and full of flavor without being overly sweet. A MUST for any true chocolate fan.
