No. No. No. No. NO
. A world of no. I'm sorry, but. Godiva is garbage. It's not solid, beyond the literal observation of its state of matter. It is slightly
upscale NestlÃ©. Might as well be a Crunch bar. The prices they charge are simply insane. Personaly, I'm quite fond of Callebaut. Drizzt's link look potentially good, though I know nothing about them. There are other options, of course. You might want to try a local health nut gourmet store (Wild Oats, etc) and see what you can try.

I honestly wasn't that impressed when I tried Scharffen Berger. Maybe I should give it another shot some time. See's may not be fancy, but <3.
