Snickers is the only chocolate you need man.

Are you talking mass-market chocolate or higher end stuff?

All I know is that super terrible cheap chocolate that they sell in bulk on holidays like Halloween, Christmas, and Easter. I can't remember what it is called, I'm sure we have all tried it at some point because it is everywhere on holidays. On Halloween they are usefully wrapped eyeballs and such.

Edit: I remember now. If you see this logo, don't eat the chocolate:

The guy who wrote the book Candy Freak said these were the best candy bars in America.

Cadbury is probably my favorite of the brands you can buy in stores. Dove is a close second.

Ooh, I second this. Cadbury chocolate is so smooth and creamy. Then you combine it with either their cream or caramel (or the newer chocolate fudge Cadbury eggs) and it is heaven.

Amazon has the 5 star bars.

You can get a lot of high end chocolate pretty easy where I live. The 24-hour Korean places usually carry a good selection. So I'll go by what's easily available there, in terms of availability. I prefer dark chocolate. These are the bars you eat piece by piece usually and not the whole thing like a Kit Kat or Snickers

Chocolove is excellent as is

Divine.

Lindt is very good and widely available.

Paul Newman's Dark Chocolate with Espresso is great. They make good peanut butter cups too.

If I was going by regular drug store or candy store candy, I would go with some of the new M&M dark chocolate flavors. I really like the dark chocolate mint ones.


I also know someone who got addicted to the Coconut ones for a while.

When I was kid I used to vacation in this town where they test marketed mint M&Ms, but they never brought them to market anywhere else. Now decades later they have, just after I stopped eating sugar for the most part.

There's actually a chocolate factory right near my house that has been getting great reviews, but they suck.

Dove chocolate is amazing and very common.

Lindt, Dove, Guylian, Godiva, Ghiradelli. All amazing.

My absolute favorites though would have to be those bite size Ferreros.




I could kill 30 of these in a sitting, easy.

Re: what company in the US makes the best chocolate?
 
Yeah Lindt, Dove, and Ghiradelli are all on point. My favorite Ferreros as a kid were the brown ones but the boxes we would get would always be in a ratio of like 25 gold: 10 silver: 5 brown :(

Ghiradelli for sure.
