    gloria p,

    I'm an 85% cocoa dark chocolate BUM!!!

    http://www.worldwidechocolate.com/sh...oir_extra.html

    Breaks into 10 squares. One-a-day, like a vitamin. Super rich, refreshing
    and satisfying.

    I am SO glad I'm a consumer and NOT in the chocolate AND strawberry AND
    champagne biz!!! Aren't I?!?

    Swing by Cost Plus/World Market if ya can, they are putting out their
    holiday stuff and at GREAT prices, snagged two big bags (40 ct. IIRC) of
    Lindt truffles yesterday for $5.99 each...lotsa German and Brit and Eye -
    talian goodies already, too.

    Retailers are going to be *very* aggressive with the pricing, it's a good
    time to buy...

    Agreed. I got some 60% the other day and it was too sweet!

    Greg, the entire past year has been a good time to buy... well, anything.
    The next couple of years will probably be the same. We've bought stuff
    we were waiting on but the prices have become so reasonable on some
    things we couldn't pass them up. We've bought 2 new cars in the past 12
    months and got killer deals on them. Had we waited a smidge longer we
    could have bought a Nissan SUV and gotten a free car too. Electronics
    have been real reasonable too. We're going to Florida for a weekend in
    January to scope out some condos. The prices will never be lower. If
    you've got the cash... buy it.

    Lindt truffles you say... Well then...

    Michael

    Meant to add:
    YES - I am definitely a fan of chocolate - or at least Cacao anyway.
    I always use whole raw beans or powdered cacao. Good stuff!

    Bitter?
    Nah.
    Not even close.

    I don't even bother with the pretence of 'chocolate'.

    I go straight for the raw bean itself - for although I'm a lover of
    chocolate - I don't actually have a sweet tooth. The sugar ruins it IMO.
