    Oh and before I went vegan, I tried the "Milk Bar" when I was visiting friends in Canada once. I remember it didn't even taste like chocolate at all. Not sure how anyone could eat that. But I guess people get used to eating stuff that's available in their area.
    Is the milk bar a particular brand of (vegan/non-vegan?) milk chocolate? Milk chocolate normally has more milk in it than chocolate so that would explain why it doesn't taste like chocolate!

    It's just the difference between Cadbury's Dairy Milk brand Chocolate bar (which doesn't taste like chocolate) and Hershey's Milk Chocolate (which does taste like chocolate). The milk bar I was referring to was Cadbury's.

    Yes I think you're right Tabbycat, it's a question of what you're used to - I think plenty of British people would tell you Cadbury's Dairy Milk tastes like chocolate and Hershey bars don't.

    Also continental Europeans don't get British-style chocolate at all and the EU wanted to declassify it as chocolate a while back.http://articles.cnn.com/2003-01-16/w...te?_s=PM:WORLD Personally I think they had a point

    Yeah, I think that American chocolate has a bit of a bad reputation on this side of the pond

    Europeans (with the exception of the British - sorry guys) make some divine chocolate. I remember one time getting to sample some very expensive Swiss & Italian chocolates. Both were delicious as I recall. Prior to that, I didn't even know Italy made fine chocolates.

    Has anyone tried Lindt 99% dark chocolate? I love it, although it is very strong so I can only eat one or two squares at a time! It's gotten to the stage now where I think of 70% chocolate as almost like milk chocolate!
    I love that stuff. It tastes like coal but it's so moreish!

    In the name of chocolate decadence today I made chocolate tofu mousse .

    Tofu mousse is a bit old-school but it does the job! I just blended together a packet of Mori-Nu firm silken tofu, a melted 125g of chocolate bar, abour 100ml soya milk, a tablespoon of sugar, a tablespoon of cocoa powder and some cinnamon, and chilled the mixture in the fridge.

    I've just finished my bar of Seed and Bean lavender dark chocolate and it was delicious. I also fell in love with Trader Joe's dark chocolate. Very good American chocolate.
    The sanctuary where I volunteer has an Easter fayre on Sunday and they will have someone selling vegan sweets and chocloates, so I will have to load up!

    At the moment Viva are selling Sjaaks Eli's Earth bars for £2.00 each. They are only place in the UK (to my limited knowledge) that stocks Sjaaks chocolate (VeganStore used to but have stopped?), I tried the "Milk" chocolate cream eggs over Easter which were all delicious so hopefully these will be also.

    *For some reason the VIVA website is down at the moment but they did have them on Friday, I ordered one of each.

    I just tried Ananda's Vegan Wagon Wheel. They are not a identical version, but are still really good (the texture is quite reminiscent of wagon wheels though). Marshmallow between 2 biscuits with chocolate & jam. Really, how can you go wrong?
