What is your favourite chocolate?

Yes :slight_smile:

‘Slightly different’ price-point to Cadbury, but I find it a very moderating experience in chocolate consumption …

That said, there are a few in a similar price comparison that are also better in my experience. I just try not to think about it too much … and not to buy any of them … really … I try … :joy::rofl::joy::rofl::joy::rofl:

Don’t give a hoot, would never buy their crappy products anyway. Only ever buy Aldi CHOCEUR brand chocolate, far superior taste !

It won’t be sold in Australia but you will no doubt be able to but them on eBay for only $1,000 each.

A classic case of playing smoke and mirrors?

Cadbury’s Old Gold Rum & Raisin chocolate is available in 180gm and 300gm blocks, both normally priced at $5.00 each.

Is it that much cheaper to make the 67% larger block that there is no need to sell it at a higher price?

Prefer dark, but can’t eat a lot as the histamines affect me and one of the triggers for hayfever type symptoms.

Dark with no added sugar and at least 75% cocoa mass, not many out in the marketplace so it’s sometimes a while before I can munch at the trough.

Definitely dark!

Chocolate Without Palm Oil!!
So Boycotting Cadbury’s .
To me, Darell Lea seems to be the only Australian chocolate that still has a creamy taste and texture

Just had a look at a Cadbury’s Old Gold Dark Chocolate Peppermint variety, and the only oil listed there is peppermint oil, No “vegetable oil” or palm oil listed.

I buy Couverture chocolate 75% 1kg bag and when not cooking with it, I eat it.

I covered this in an earlier post.

There is a lot of misinformation about palm oil and particular companies.

Most concern is about illegal clearing for palm oil production. Not all palm oil fits into this category and some can be certified sustainable production sources.

Quality chocolate is too easy to consume and not stop!

Chocolate seems to be even more enjoyable when combined with other products.

  • Handmade truffles for a once a year treat.
  • RockLea Road (not the street so named in Brisbane).
  • For everyday mundane Buderim Ginger or Colombian roasted coffee beans coated in dark chocolate.
  • To get that one serve of fruit daily, Melted chocolate as a dipper for fresh strawberries.
  • Quality dark chocolate apparently compliments single malt whisky, but more research required to determine if it’s a reliable observation.
