I had this last time I was in Holland. Apparently it's 100% ethical fair-trade, like the makers actually went and researched their supply chain and made sure every part of it was paying a living wage to workers. It's also pretty class chocolate.

They all do. It's a big sell in the summer. Leave the 95 degree sunny heat to sit in a cold dark room.

Memories return of sitting shivering in a New York cinema in July when it was 98 in the shade outside. They should warn people to bring a coat or something! I nearly caught my death sitting there in a summer dress.

Have never seen that, where can it be got? Also is 70% cocoa the highest hers go? These days even that tastes a bit sweet for my palate.
I think 70% is the highest alright. You can get them in Fresh, Fallon & Byrne, Kilkenny Centre, some Super Valu - though the one in Kilmainham seems to have stopped stocking it.

€2.75 - €2.90 per bar

I was speaking to a chocolate maker recently and he said that the trend was towards an increase in Cocoa content and/ or a reduction in sugar. 70-80% is about my limit though.

Other Irish brand - available in Fresh
