Chocolate Suggestions Wanted

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'd like to get some suggestions for Latin / South American dark chocolate bars. Do you have any favorites?

Probably a stupid question, but bars made in South America or just made from South American cocoa beans?

I'm fond of El Rey's 70% Gran Saman dark chocolate. Love their white chocolate, but I'm not really fond of everything else between those two that El Rey makes.

Thanks! That's one I'm not familiar with. I like what I've read thus far about the company and the product. I'll see if I can find a few bars locally.

Either way, although the more that's done locally the more interested I'd be. Depends on all the factors, including taste, availability, and the style of the finished product.

Well, I'm partial to Lindt 75% cocoa Ecuador. Surprisingly mild and very pleasant for munching (none of it has made it into a recipe yet. It...um...evaporates.) I also like Valrhona's Guanaja, a blend of South American chocolates, 70% cocoa and their Araguani 72% cocoa from Venezuela. Those evaporate, too, or maybe it's chocolate moths. In any case, it keeps disappearing. None of them have made it into anything cooked, but gently grated over vanilla bean ice cream? Heaven.

You also may want to look into this one, its a great tasting chocolate, very silky on the palette and cooks well.

Suchard sensations 86% cocoa

Thanks for the tip, however, from what I can tell, it's not a Latin American chocolate.
