Just ran across a new flavor which might be my new favorite -- Ghirardelli 72% dark, but with cherry flavor and bits of almond. Tastes like cherry Coke and chocolate dipped cherries and those chocolate balls with the liquid cherry in the middle.

Dangerously Yummy.

I ran across a chocolate bar in the grocery store closeout bin, Theo Chocolate's "Salted Black Licorice 70% Dark Chocolate."

I'd never heard of licorice and chocolate together before (though I have since seen several).

It's not bad.... but not something I'd pursue again I don't think.  The marriage is not made in heaven. Dark chocolate is a complex symphony of tastes, changing from first melt to final aftertaste in subtle and wonderful ways. Anise, on the other hand, is just anise -- start to finish.

I like the gentler dark chocolates. 70%+ is too much for me.

Ghiradelli makes a higher percentage (89%?) but that begins to taste like baking chocolate -- astringent, chalky, ascerbic. They also make a 60% which is closer to milk chocolate.

I would never kick a milk chocolate out of bed for eating crackers, but I have grown to prefer the complexity and lower sweetness of a 70-72% dark. It's an acquired taste for sure.
