Agreement, Hershey's is the bottom of the barrel.
Lindt, at least the stuff in Canada, now contains hydrogenated oils. I bought my kid some at Christmas, and noticed the difference in taste.

I really wish people would accept that food costs money. Maybe then manufacturers would stop cutting corners.

Alter Eco Dark Blackout has: Cocoa Mass, Cocoa Butter, Cane Sugar. That's it. So smooth and flavorful.

I find Lindt, Guittard, and Godiva produce a really good blend for chocolates, ganaches, and mousse. Vahlrona's very good,but kind of expensive. I sometimes use Callebaut in baking, but not for eating chocolate.

I think maybe you mean the truffle candies. I'm just talking about their chocolate bars. The ones in the cupboard right now contain:

Sugar, chocolate, cocoa butter, soya lecithin (emulsifier), vanilla -- may contain traces of peanuts/tree nuts/milk.

I do like Valrhona too, but it is so hard to get around here.

That's disappointing. I always enjoyed Lindt chocolate but I haven't bought it in a while.

Noooooo! I end up buying most of mine south of the border anyway. I can't find the mint truffles up here. All the other varieties, but not mint. Christmas before last, they had the gift boxes at Shoppers, but not this past Christmas.

Lindt still tastes good to me. I've noticed zero difference in taste.
