So, I'm eating this chocolate bar that proclaims itself to be of the "dark truffle" variety, and I'm thinking it's neither very dark nor very truffle-y. I can excuse the lack of truffleness due to it's thinness -- there's only so much room to stuff the soft goodness in. The darkness, though I simply cannot let slide. Then I notice some small type in a corner of the wrapping: "57% cacao".

wtf?? *57* percent?! that's ALL??!?

fuckers.

Since when was 57% considered "dark" chocolate? There should be a law against that kind of misleading advertising. Chocolate shouldn't be called "dark" untill it's *at least* 65%, preferably over %70.

Sure, the wrapper printed with soy ink and the bar's claim of being all-organic is nice and reassuring, but that doesn't excuse a cheap-assed attempt at passing off a measly 57% as being "dark" chocolate. No wonder it tastes so pathetic.

Last time I buy this crap.

Or we could put our government to work fixing real problems ;)

Well, I just figured that, given the current situation, it was fairly obvious they aren't going to be working on real problems any time soon.

no, though I've tried and didn't like them once before.

No, this is the "Terra Nostra" brand.
