Does anyone know the actual weight of each bar of the chocolate?

Can we have an opt-out for the milk chocolate portion? Maybe replace it with some Guatemala coffee instead?

I like to talk about wine, but I'd rather drink it.

Answered my own question by looking at the past Woots... if it's the same then each is 2 oz.

Just found the answer to my own question. In the little audio cut he mentions that the dark milk chocolate is certified kosher.

It's not as bad as you think. big brand milk chocolate is too sweet for me, but these 41% bars are not as sweet as Hershey's (for example). they are not dark chocolate, but they are somewhere in between i would say. though i'm with you, a little coffee in them would be great.

the milk chocolate here is a little darker than milk chocolate bars in the store, and the cinnamon is subtle but comes through on the finish. i taste the cinnamon more in the almond bars for some reason.

It is mean to offer chocolate at 1:15 AM, knowing that if it was ordered it would not get here for weeks, and that I am too damn lazy to zip to the store to sate that chocolate lust you inspired.

Not sure this is a good Woot... Each bar is $3 on the company's website. Hard to get a shipping estimate, though...

Yes, I ordered this before and it is excellent chocolate. I shared some with a friend and they thought it was very good also. Goes well with a glass of wine, by the way!
PS. In for a reorder.

I got a slightly different pack the last time they were selling them on here. It contained all 3 types in this pack, just in smaller quantities and with a couple other flavors. Of all 5 that I got in my package, these 3 were the tastiest.

However, I would venture that they weren't $30 tasty. They weren't any better than Toblerone or any of the fancier chocolate bars that you can get locally for $1-2 a piece. Based just on taste, they definitely weren't world class and I wouldn't reorder at this (or even half) price.

The single origin dark chocolate is excellent! The dark milk chocolate didn't tickle my fancy as much, but they were still very good.

The chili cabonero dark chocolate was my favorite, but it isn't included with todays deal

I've never tried Guatemalan chocolate. I'm fond of Mexican chocolate. I assume they're processed in a similar method (just fine grinding the cacao nibs, not "dutch" processed w/bases to neutralize pH).
Can anyone comment if this is the case?

(edit: I read the website, this is indeed the case. although I wasn't aware of a fermentation period in processing cacao. Anyway.... YUM!)

Agree completely. I have friends that every time they hear I've got more chocolate want to know if there's any chili cabonero dark chocolate left. Its got a great slow heat that builds up strong, but never overpowers the dark chocolate. Even if you don't really like hot things you'll like this. The dark chocolate seems to temper the worst of the heat. I believe it's the fat in the chocolate that does this; same reason you drink milk with very hot chili dishes. But not skim milk, no help there.

Ugh...if only we were able to specify our chocolate. I eat 70-85% dark chocolates. Milk chocolate just gives me a sugar headache. I have always said that dark chocolate is chocolate, milk chocolate is pretending it is chocolate, and white chocolate is the ghost of chocolate past. There is no point in eating anything other than the real stuff. Heck, if it is the good quality stuff I can eat unsweetened chocolate! Has to be dang good stuff though.

I have Celiac, is this from a designated gluten free facility? My kids are plebeians and like milk chocolate better than dark but I can't risk it from non-safe places or I end up very sick.

Mine too. I'd be in again if it was included. Maybe next time...

Got the 5-variety pack last time. Good stuff. But I had me a coupon from Woot! just in time for that to come out, so it was a steal. And if anyone wants a reasonable comparison, Godiva chocolate bars in the store are about $3.00 including tax. To be honest, I think I like this stuff more than Godiva.

What size are the bars? I can't find it anywhere in the description. Serving size is 1/2 bar??? Size matters

Aww they changed it from the all dark, and I'd just run out from my last order. I mean I'm intrigued by the dark milk but I really wish it was 4 dark and 3 of each of the milk. Or better yet 6 dark and 2 of each milk if they have to mess with the all dark. I'll have to think about this.

ajrod27 wrote:

And that's the other thing that's making me hesitate. If the chili cabonero dark was included I'd be all over this. It's the whole reason I tried them in the first place and didn't regret it at all.

I bought these the last 2 times, and enjoyed all of the flavors. But I generally prefer Dark over Milk. If this Woot had included the Sea Salt and Chile instead of the Milk options, I would've bought a third time.

BTW, the Chile Chocolate is the best decongestant I've ever had. Got me through a january cold

There is no pics of the packaging...naughty Woot!

Or maybe I'm wrong and you simply get a plate of chocolate bars delivered.

I got these the last two times they were offered. I usually prefer dark chocolate but I loved the cinnamon dark milk bars. Unlike others, I'm happy to see this again without the chile bars. *shrug* While they are good and I have enjoyed the occasional bite of the chile bars, they weren't my favorite thing ever.

damn! the chili and sea salt were my two favorites last time and they're the two we don't get this time. I'll have to pass because of it, but I highly recommend this chocolate!
