Non-USA Ponyfriends: Best Chocolate?
« on: October 11, 2018, 12:34:45 AM »
I'm but a wee Pennsylvanian, lived on Hershey's all my life...educate me. What's some delicious chocolate that I should give a try? The best chocolate you've ever had? Do you guys like Hershey's or do you think it tastes sour?
We have quite a few international candy bars sold at my store, so I've had Milka chocolate. I love the one with the biscuit. I've had a lion bar as well, but that's not so much chocolate as it is caramel.

Milkybar and Cadbury's Bournville are my two favourite types of chocolate. I've had Hershey's Cookies and Cream before, they sell them practically everywhere where I am XD I quite like it to be honest, although its quite sickly so I don't tend to eat much of it.

Try Lindt, here in Switzerland it’s the best chocolate ;) I remember seeing it in US store.
Do you have any belgium chocolate, like « cote d’or »? They re great too.

As for Hershey’s, well it doesn’t taste bad, just artificial.

I've never tried Hershey's so I can't really compare. They did bring a batch of Godiva over here for a while which was nice but not superduper as I got the impression it should be. I tried the plain bar, the one with caramel and the dark one.

My top favorite is Fazers milk chocolate, the Finns know how to make chocolate! Lindt also have good chocolate, not so much the bars but their round paperwrapped balls are awesome. I prefer their 70% cacao bars for baking. Belgium chocolate is alright but too soft. Then we have Cloetta. Their plain bars are not the best but Kexchoklad (with waffers!) is a favorite, you can never have just one and Sport Lunch I can eat every day of the week, lol.

Oh wow you mean "branded" chocolate? 'Cuz, I don't thinks most of branded chocolate are good :blush:
Belgian chocolate is the best to me (yay I'm from Belgium), Swiss one usually is too much sugary.
Also as I'm boycotting all the multinationals working with monsanto, so bye to Côte d'Or (who's ok) and Lindt (who's ok but too much sugarry) non speaking of Milka (absolute horror as chocolate, but ok for a sweet treat)... Cadburry (I used to love it as a kid) etc.  'cuz they all came from the same ugly kind of bussiness.
I personnaly go on fair trade chocolate or even better, real chocolate making shop so I'll go for Mary Chocolatier or Marcolini or Neuhaus, none best! But I don't know how you can find them international :biggrin:
(and please never buy ugly chocolate like Leonidas, they are the worst made in china not tastefull and too sugary/fat chocolate sold as real Belgian chocolate, but it's really not that at all).

I'm surprised that no one has mentioned Terry's. Their chocolate is always best to eat at Christmas, especially Chocolate Oranges!  :P

Like someone said, Lindt. So gooood.
Also if we can go all local, here in Finland we have a magical swiss like chocolate brand called Fazer. So good, even though I love some basic brands like Kinder and Twix too, they're much more caramel like than good old Fazer. It's also cheaper than other quality chocolates here.
Also apparently Cloetta is a swedish brand?? I can't imagine having to live without their latte chocolate or, most of all, Tupla (finnish for double) bars!!! Those are so good and I can't imagine overseas folk don't have them.
Also Rittersport is a german brand that makes a wide variety of square shaped chocolate bars!!! I love the ones that are basicaly big cookies.

Lindt choc balls with melted choc centre - yummmmmmm (also have orange ones and coconut ones as well as strawberry... all lovely!)

M&S Belgian-choc-covered caramel popcorn - OMG divine

Gorvette and Stone of Henley - artisan chocolatiers, their salted caramel ones are a treat at Christmas!

Old-formula Cardburys dairymilk, before they started using nasty palm oil in everything.

Kit-Kat - but only when dipped in hot coffee to melt it, and then you suck the chocolate bit off the biscuit  (yes, I am gross LOL)

Do you have a Cost Plus World Market near you? I'd go there and browse their candy selection. It's the easiest way for me to try imported candy!

:O why non usa ponies?

I'm not a chocolate person but some of the better quality chocolates I've had are little things from local places. (Like chocolatiers or boutique places I suppose).

If you ever find yourself in NE Ohio, pick up some Malley's chocolate. They are known for their buckeyes (if you like peanut butter). But they have bars and assorted chocolate covered things.

And I'll double down on check out world market if you have one near you.

I believe Target carries rittersport and lindt, which were mentioned above. (I know they have more but I don't pay too much attention)

Hershey’s tastes like sour milk to me. I’ve had it a few times and just can’t get along with the taste!

For me it’s got to be Cadbury’s or Green and Blacks.

Just because that's the majority of people who I see say that Hershey's tastes soured and yogurty. I appreciate everyone's suggestions, and I'm sure my mom would love an excuse to go to World Market again.
It's interesting to see so many people liking Lindt, guess I never thought much about them before.

That's because of the butyric acid.  We are used to the taste while other countries aren't.

I mean it's pretty obvious that a normal Hershey bar isn't the highest quality. :) But it's not like it's the only chocolate available.

Lindt is ok (to me)... But after reading about their practices today I don't think I wanna eat their chocolate
