I hate you all.
And I agree with MacGuffin - I didn't start liking dark chocolate until about 10 or 15 years ago. I also noticed the 77% chocolate that you bought, MacGuffin - The darkest I normally see in shops in the US is about 72% - 60 to 70% is the norm.
77 % is not the limit here:
But 88 % is a bit too much for my taste. Although it depends on the cocoa beans. The taste of cocoa can vary from creamy to fruity, depending on where they come from. I do not like the fruity flavour too much.
You know although I don't particularly mind milk chocolate, I do agree with you entirely. I don't like the aftertaste that it leaves, it's far far far worse than dark chocolate. For example, I cannot freaking stand Hershey's at all...
You know, I once tried a slab of Hershey's milk chocolate.
Never again. It actually oozed oil.
I think it's not a coincidence that it isn't available here. And in our supermarkets you can find the most multifaceted range of chocolate sorts you can imagine.
Those Reeze Peanut Butter Cups are not available here, too. I once ordered a pack from an online shop, thogh. They were ok but I have never ever before eaten chocolate that lay heavier in the stomach than those things.
