Found 99% Lindt and bought a bar. Lindt package it the same size as their other bars but when I opened the box there was a liner box inside so felt a bit ripped off. I imagine although its in the same size box there's probably half as much chocolate and it seemed to cost 15% more than the other bars.
I eat 75-85% chocolate routinely and love the taste, but although this was 'only' a 14% max jump it really was a very different beast, I assume because of the decreased sugar.
I liked it, but maybe i'll go back to around 80% even though it's not as bulletproof
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?
At most grocery stores near me the Lindt 90% bars are no more than $2.20 per bar.
Does anyone know where to find those AMMA bars? After doing a quick search they seem to be unavailable online and in the US except New York City.
I know this is an old thread, just thought I would share since I have been on a hunt for GOOD tasting 90%-100% there are some that don't have the horrid bite that LINDT has or the soy lechtin
Here are a few nice 90% ones I have found
Very Very smooth 100%, Vivani (hint of burbon taste)
This is super expense but oh sooo divine!!!!! Pralus
alter eco dark blackout http://www.alterecofoods.com/products/chocolate/dark-blackout
85%, no soy lecithin, delicious.
Cacao beans, cocoa butter, raw cane sugar, vanilla beans"
That Vivani you linked is only 72% cacao. I have enjoyed their 85% though.Another good one I tried recently is fearless. I I wish they were all as cheap as Lindt though
Eco Dark Blackout is yummy. The other brand I buy -- Endangered Species. 88% Dark -- Is also pretty good.
I still eat Lindt. I eat less now than I did before; there was a point where I was eating an entire bar a day. I don't think it's necessarily a bad thing to eat that much. 85% and higher are pretty healthy, for the most part. But it's damn expensive to eat it in such volume. And the sugar content in the 85% does add up if you eat enough of it. I've tried a few other brands, but haven't found anything as consistently tasty, available and affordable as Lindt. I alternate between the 85% and the 90% myself. I find it much harder to eat more of the 90% haha. The 85% is like a dessert to me these days, so I keep it to half a bar, max.

Let's be friends on MyFitnessPal!
the cheapest bar at the natural grocers i go to is the alter eco 85%. it is good, but i actually like lindt's better, plus isn't the processing of lindt supposed to be better than most? sucks having to go to walmart to get it, but is good and super cheap and tasty. when i feel like spending a little more i get the vivani. when i feel like spending even more than that i'll maybe get the fearless stuff, cause its organic and raw.
Yeah, pretty sure the Lindt 85% isn't processed with alkali. The 90% is, however. IIRC.
I tried one of these bars recently and it is my favorite to date. http://www.amazon.com/Divine-Chocolate-Mint-Dark-Ounce/dp/B00FDM76KM/ref=sr_1_1?s=grocery&ie=UTF8&qid=1396843053&sr=1-1&keywords=divine+chocolate+peppermint
Also, I must get my hands on one of those Alter Eco blackout bars! They sound delicious.
Doe's anyone no of a dark Choc that doesn't contain soy lecithin?
Viviani deliberately exclude lecithin from their chocolate. You can read about it here:
I personally prefer their 92% bar! Besides from being organic (i.e., non GMO and no strange ingredients) and european (implying stricter production limits), it tastes much better than Lindt's!https://www.organicsupermarket.ie/shop/chocolate-snacks/vivani-92-dark-chocolate/
