My favorites evolved throughout the testing process but it ultimately came down to one clear winner.
Are you ready for this? It could change your life.
The winner is...
I wasn't a huge fan of dark chocolate originally. Whenever I got a miniature Hershey's Dark in my loot sack on Halloween it was quickly traded off in a package deal with the Lemon Flavored Tootsie Rolls. But I guess that my taste has changed (evolved?) as I've gotten older because most milk chocolate is just too sweet for me anymore. However, I find that a lot of dark chocolate is too bitter. So where's the balance?
Here, in this bar. That's where it is.
I don't know if it's because it's Belgian chocolate or what but this bar is the perfect blend of subtly salty and just enough sweet - plus almonds, which are my favorite.
Maybe you're thinking, "Gerb, dark chocolate? Seriously?" Well, my friend, I have found your new favorite, too. If you aren't even willing to try the perfection of Chocolove's bar because of its 55% cocoa content then this is the milk chocolate candy you're looking for:
Neither of these candy bar makers are giving me anything to share my findings with you. All I'm getting out of this is the warm feeling in my heart knowing that I've helped you discover your new favorite candy bar.
You are SO welcome!
Now that I've found perfection in a chocolate bar I'm not sure what to look for next. Any suggestions?
