Absolute BEST CHOCOLATES in the world...and WHY.

I just returned from Pier 39 San Francisco with the family.
Has some Clam Chowder in a Boudin Sourdough 'edible' Bowl, a Turkey, Avocado, and Tomato Croissant Sandwich, a Sourdough Pepperoni Pizza, and Peach-Iced Tea. *shivers*

Afterwards, we went down to the Ghirardelli Chocolate outlet and just about passed out from the delicious smells and scrumptious samples. This got me to thinking though...

WHO MAKES THE ABSOLUTE BEST CHOCOLATES IN THE WORLD, IN YOUR OPINION?

Please provide exact name of chocolatiers, because I will be looking for it.

Swiss Chocolate is just incredible!
It's light, creamy, airy, and j u s t sweet enough.
I've never had the pleasure of sampling French chocolate.
And unfortunately, American chocolate has quite a ways to go.

According to FORBES, this is a link to the world's BEST chocolates...http://www.zchocolat.com/default.asp..._bestchocolate
Innocence, Touché, Ambivalence, Péché, Sagesses, Paradis, Reflet,
Sputnik-10, Discoverer, and Luna...






I never heard of these guys. But I'm gonna look for 'em now.

Thats a toughie. Either cadburys or the people that make toblerone. I think either/both because they just make me want more and they are soooo nice

Swiss chocolate is amazing

I agree! I think perhaps Toblerone is my all time fave....White chocolate one...

Either Cadbury's simply for their Dairy Milk bar (but only when it's from the UK, I've tried it in other countries and it just doesn't taste the same...)


Or Guylian chocolates from Belgium,


Or Lindt/Lindor (Swiss).


All delicious, dairy milk cos it's so smooth and almost creamy to taste, Guilan cos it's just delicious, no need for another reason. And Lindt/Lindor cos it literally melts in your mouth with deliciousness! mmmmmmmmmmm

IMO, there's too much sugar in most chocolate, which just makes you fat.
When buying the product, there is a big chance that the cacao for the chocolate is made in one of those plantations where they work with slaves or even child slaves, but I guess that counts for lots of other products as well.
