I am a big chocolate lover and a huge huge fan of dark chocolate. I am also a great believer in the health benefits of high level cocoa in chocolate. OK I may not have figured out if I actually believe that dark chocolate is good for you because it is, or if I choose to believe it is to make myself feel better about eating it lol either way, I'm happy to believe!
This chocolate is amazing, 64% cocoa, smooth, strong in flavour, rich. It's just perfect. I did not get to make the chocolate brownie I wanted too, because by the time I allowed the 4 other members of my family try it out, and then I had another piece, and another, I accidentally ate it all :P I think the large squares confuse you, and three pieces, although not much, is in fact a whole row :(
Whatever the case may be, Whittakers did well with with one. I think they got the perfect percentage of cocoa, and as such made an excellent dark chocolate. It would be great added to baking, or grated on top of hot chocolate or latte. This is definitely one of my favorites in the range.
I am a chocolate lover and I am definitely hooked on the smoothness of how this chocolate melted in my mouth. It was divine and sent me to another world and left me wanting more.
I thought that the bar was too small and I could eat it all myself as a pick me up when things aren't going well. I was given a piece to taste, not knowing what it was and that sent me to the shop the next day with the sole intention of buying this chocolate. I thought that the smell was amazing and had intended to bake a chocolate cake but the smell made me eat it without it being baked into a cake.
I told my sister who is in Switzerland about this chocolate and was going to try and send her some but it ended up being too tempting and I just had to eat it for her, she was not impressed as she was looking forward to trying this chocolate. I really liked the packaging, I thought it was relevant to the product. I liked the artwork as it was eye catching. I normally look at the ingredient list but since I had some of this chocolate already I just ate it.

Excellent cheese for cheese boards or sandwiches but its best use would have to be a cracked pepper cheese sauce for your winter roast!
