    It's amazing how HotelChocolat has grown in recent years, at one time it was Thorntons that was the big name but times change!

    I do know it is very popular and it is nice to know that they do include dark chocolate in their many varieties. For those with discerning tastes you can not beat dark chocolate ..........  sunny

    Talking of chocolate, I saw on the news the other day that British chocolate is no longer allowed to be sold in The States. This was after a ruling by Hershey. There is a company in the UK now making a fortune boxing up British chocolate and posting over. This is legal. I have tried Hershey Bars and they are awful.

    Just done some more research on the Hotel Chocolat site and seen the vintage buttons quote " We researched old buttons from the 1700s, 1800s and early 1900s and became so absorbed that we bought our own collection. Inside you'll find a selection of buttons that best highlight the great skill and artistry that was put into the humble button."

    Dark chocolate 70% I believe so they could be included in a LCHF menu plan?

    And yes it's good to see 100% dark chocolate. I can remember our member 'Old Tech' referring to 100% dark he can buy.

    Not too sure if 'OldTech' still follows us ...... I hope so.

    But it would appear we can get 100% dark cocoa chocolate like the US Bakers?

    Hope things are going well for you Old Tech ..... if memory serves me correct you were also looking into resistant starch:?

    Lindt chocolate (or Green and Blacks) especially the 90% variety is a must have for some who live the LCHF lifestyle.  Smile

    Don't you think a square goes lovely with a cup of coffee.  Smile

    Does anyone know of a bargain in any of the supermarkets? ...

    I see that in South Africa they have introduced a 99% Cocoa Slab.
    A lot more costly than the others

    Nice thread! Basically I am going to prepare a coconut cocoa cake and for the topping I bought the Ghirardelly 100% chocolate bar unsweetened and guys, I usually can stand lack of sugar since I don't eat any of it but hey, this is so bitter that even by putting in it some sweetener it didn't help! I may eat it a little but cannot put it on a cake for others. I was just thinking about buying the Lindt one. The 99% is far better than this one that I bought. Which one do you use for cakes toppings or decorations?

    I use the Lindt 90% for toppings bit higher in carbs at 14g per 100g than the 8g in the 99% but used sparingly should be OK

    Now I'm annoyed, my favourite Co-Op Fairtrade 85% has been off the shelves now for a couple of weeks. They no longer sell anything stronger than (Lindt) 70%.

    Will have to go to the "healthfood" shop and see if they have my second favourite, Divine 85%, I don't think they sell the 90% either from Lindt or anyone else.

    I'm fortunate Chris we have all the big supermarkets in easy reach, not tried the Co-Op chocolate but agree about the Divine though it's a good and not as bitter as some

    I will need to taste the 99% and check if it is possible to make it more sweet by a sweetener. I even don't remember the taste! I just need it for some fast decoration lines so hope it will work!

    I try and use the 85% dark chocolate Lindt ... although some supermarkets / stores do stock their own make or something like Green and Blacks ... must admit haven't tried the Divine brand ...

    Now if you are looking for something that is dark chocolate and just right for this time of year - you could consider making these Dark Chocolate Chunks ... I like all the options given but the top one is quite seasonal  santa


    Do go and have a look ...
