  • I heard Dave say Lindt 85% was the best he could find, but he may have been in Canada at the time.  If you can't get that I would say go with something of 85% or more chocolate.


  • There is a 99% version but I havent found higher than 90%. My chocolate hunger subsides after 4 squares, 3g sugars is worth it.

    I can only find the 85% in Aus....


     


    Jason, I can imagine that the 99% is nasty. I'll try the cocoa powder + butter tonight. Maybe with a bit of stevia and vanilla. 


    I can just imagine the girlfriend now "YOU ATE A WHOLE BLOCK OF BUTTER WITH CHOCOLATE POWDER IN IT FOR DINNER???? WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU????" 


    No sorcery, just science.

    Add coconut oil and a touch of PHRS (ground fine into a powder).  The salt really does it for me.

  • So the higher the percentage the less sugar ? Is that how it works ?I think I may have had 85% Lindt already. It's reasonably easy to get in the UK

  • Yes the higher you go NORMALLY the lower sugar and of course higher are the benefits. 99% by its own is not really good, but try mixing it almond butter or something. The butter basically hides the bitter taste of the chocolate and makes a pretty good snack. Lindt is still the best around as i didnt fin any high % cocoa organic chocolate. It always is around 70% and the sugar content is pretty high
  • I've had the 99%, it's like battery acid, if you want to try it just mix cocoa powder into butter ( until its black) :)


    Sounds like my salted chocolate balls.


    100g butter

    30g cocoa powder

    1-2 tablespoon stevia or xylitol

    1 tablespoon vanilla powder, not sugar.

    1cl coffee (optional)

    Ca: 1 cup of shredded coconut


    Mix ingredients with your hands to a pretty solid block, make smaller balls out of it and role in shredded coconut.

    Think it will work without maca? Heard it has some toxin issues.

  • I buy 90% Lindt chocolate bars of amazon.com. 12 bars for $30 free shipping. I sometimes eat a whole bar with lunch. You think that's too much?

    I'm reading more about this, but the lindt 90% has the cocoa powder processed with alkali, which I read reduces the benefits of the anti-oxidants in the chocolate. Others here could probably comment more and say how much it really matters. They don't use alkali on their 85% dark, though. I basically just went to whole foods and bought the three best looking high percentage chocolate bars based on the ingredients and will report back based on taste and ingredients.
