My favorite chocolates

Small batch artisan chocolates from Oregon (great gin, chocolates, beer - who would've guessed). The Chipolte Pepper and Black Pepper ganaches are unique! If you like chocolate you must try these.

Phillips Candy House in Dorchester, MA. The best turtles you will ever have, period. The orange and raspberry creams are also to die for.

Callies in Mountainhome PA makes awesome chocolate covered strawberries. Infact the covered cream cheese is just as yummy.

I went to Belgium last summer and now I'm spoiled for all other chocolate.

Not artisan by any means, but a square of Ritter Sport or Milka was always in my pocket when I lived and skied in Germany/Austia.

A good Wiki article with a list of Ritter flavors here.

The semi-sweet. Excellent quality for not a lot of scratch. Note: although prices are posted, you have to call them to order. I need to make an order before it gets any warmer.

Long story short, we were over that way last summer with the kids, and came upon Wilbur after spending a few days at Hershey Park. While the Park was OK, Wilbur makes way better chocolate.

I know above comment was posted in jest, but I'm curious about how Europeans really feel about mainstream American chocolate candy? I have a suspicion there is some camp appeal for Snickers, M&Ms, Reeses', etc. Am I incorrect?

The reason I mention this is that a couple years ago in Austria I offered some American chocolates I had in my pockets (happend to be Harry and David brand) to several different groups of Euros I was with and they were quite curious about them and eagerly gobbled them up. Of course, we Americans have great respect and admiration for pretty much all European chocolate.

Dark and Swiss. The darker the better. i'm to the point where I really don't even like milk chocolate.

I found a yummy bar at Whole Foods a while back that was dark chocolate with dried cherries and pecans in it. I thought I had died and gone to heaven. Don't know the brand, though. I need another one.

I have not lived in Denver for about a year, but the Sunflower Market on Colorado, just south of Yale, had dark chocolate ith dried cranberries that I was addicted to. They had lots of other flavors too.

As a kid in the '60s I would sometimes get drafted to go with my mom when she shopped in the local department store. The store had a little candy counter and my mom would buy herself and me these big chunks of plain chocolate about the size of a small tangerine. I would gnaw on my chunk for a long time while she shopped - made shopping more palatable! I am no longer so crazy about plain solid chocolate, but do enjoy chocolate with nuts or fruit in it. Not such an exotic nomination, but I really like those red chocolate covered cherries from Harry and David.

BTW, I nibble and savor chocolate and that makes me a gourmet (with a lot of fillings in my teeth). My wife gobbles and gulps, sometimes in secret. That makes her a chocoholic :-)
