Consumer Reports’s Chocolate Reviews

Thanks to Candy Yum Yum, I now know how Consumer Reports ranked fancy chocolates in their own tasting:

  1. Norman Love – the truffle of choice at Chocolate and Vines, one of my new favorite places in Rochester
  2. Woodhouse
  3. Christopher Elbow – tasted in a Cocoa Bella box at a Calhoun College tasting
  4. L.A. Burdick – introduced to me as a gift; I’ve now also had the pleasure of visiting them in person
  5. Candinas
  6. Jacques Torres – has been on my NYC to-visit list for ages
  7. John & Kira’s
  8. La Maison du Chocolat – visited in person in NYC, where I sampled sipping chocolate and bought an intense 100% bar
  9. Fran’s – they’re pretty widely available, including at Whole Foods
  10. Nonnie Waller’s
  11. Theo Chocolate – their bars are pretty easy to find. I’ve reviewed 3 of them.
  12. Martine’s Chocolate

Six out of 12 ain’t bad! The rest are on my endless candy bucket list. I should make a page for that on the site…
