    This picture isn't great, but it's a beautiful package design of six small boxes, each with six bite-size pieces of 70% cocoa representing different regions: Venezuela, Trinidad, Madagascar, Jamaica, Grenada, and Ecuador. They all taste completely different, and the flavor profiles range from delicate to strong, sour to intense, even floral to earthy. Slowly savor a bite or two after dinner and compare. This would make a SERIOUSLY kick-ass xmas present for the dark-chocolate lover in your life (or yourself). All Amedei chocolate is fabulous, but for the coolness factor I give this box the highest possible recommendation.
    I want that! I made a list of chocolate brands I want to taste and I can't find a single one around here to buy. ****! Here's the list; who has tried any of these and what can you tell me about your experience?

    Italian:
    - Amedei;
    - L’Artigano
    - Zotter
    - Domori

    French:
    - La Maison du Chocolat;
    - JP Hevin
    - Weiss
    - Debauve & Gallais
    - Richart Paris
    - Dalloyau
    - Valrhona
    - Poulain
    - Menier
    - Drome
    - Barry

    The best I have tried so far is Cot D'Or (dark of course) with orange. A couple of Lindt chocolates are not bad either.

    A couple of recommended brands disappointed me though, like Dolfin chocolates in their silly "plastic pouch". I also tried some very expensive German chocolate and I didn't like it. Maybe I'm a middle class chocolate guy and I wouldn't like chocolate like Amadei? :(

    I can only do milk chocolate in combo with peanut butter.

    Someone made dark chocolate/toffee bark and brought it to our office yesterday. OMG.. it tasted like a little slice of heaven.

    Oh and I voted for milk chocolate as that is really my favorite if I eat chocolate.
    reonick, your post is scary in that everything you wrote is as if I was describing my tastes, and my wife's as well.

    I wished you put all of the above as an option, since this was a hard poll. I chose dark because it's not too sweet unlike the other 2. Dark chocolate is at its best when it becomes a Pocky flavor called Men's Pocky. Best Pockys ever!

    La Maison du Chocolat has the best chocolate I have ever had! We went there while we were in Paris(2005) and then again in London and Paris when we were there for the Kings/Ducks games in August. The boutiques are AMAZING. It's like going into a jewelry store.

    I guess I'm in the minority, but I prefer white chocolate.

    Dark is definitely my favorite. My parents gave me a bunch of Godiva 72% Cocoa for Christmas, freakin' delicious.

    dark all the way.

    the milk one by itself just doesn't do me any justice. it's like drinking bad beer with bad aftertaste.
    I BELIEVE I'll have another beer!

    Anything but white. It tastes like the yogurt on yogurt covered raisins and almonds. Ick.

    And anything dipped in chocolate. Pretzels, apples, sourdough bread, nuts anything. Sees candy is also a downfall.
