Flavor: Chocolate Chunks (Semi-Sweet) | Size: 12 Ounce (Pack of 6)
Semi-sweet Chocolate [Sugar, Chocolate, Cocoa Butter, Soy Lecithin (Emulsifier), Vanilla Extract, Salt].
Melting Tips: Microwave Melting: Microwave 1 cup chocolate chunks in microwavable bowl on High 2 minutes. Remove from oven. Stir until completely melted. Top of Stove Melting: Place in small heavy saucepan on very low heat; stir constantly just until melted. Storage Tips: Keep in a cool, dry place (below 75 degrees F if possible) but not in refrigerator. At very high temperatures chocolate grays in color. This happens naturally when cocoa butter rises to the surface. It does not affect chocolate flavor and quality.

I searched cheap brands like Nestle (whom I have humanitarian rights issues with anyhow) to the nicer brands like Ghiradelli, as well as the large blocks of chocolate bark in grocers' shelves. Every single product except for this brand had hydrogenated oils, particularly in their white chocolate.
So in addition to the reviewer who takes consideration to peanut processing, I like that this is hydrogenation-free. It's the choice I make come the holidays.
Best of luck in whatever chocolate you choose!
I like to bake and I make pretty much everything from scratch. (No boxed mixes for me.) Whenever I come across a recipe that calls for unsweetened chocolate, this is what I use. It's pretty much guaranteed to work (or at least, it always has for me) and, being the easiest-to-find product of its type, it's likely what the recipe was developed with. I actually have a difficult time finding any other brands of unsweetened chocolate locally.
I have used lots of this in cakes, cookies, brownies, etc. -- all with success. Another way I like to use it is in homemade yogurt. I much prefer the flavor of unsweetened chocolate in homemade yogurt (just take about 2 ounces, chop it up, and let it melt in around a quart of scalded milk; let the milk cool and add yogurt starter, then put in a yogurt maker).
Please note: Baker's changed the packaging some time ago (I first started noticing around the holiday season last winter), cutting the amount of chocolate you get in half (i.e., the boxes are 4 oz. instead of 8 oz.). So even though the newer packages contain less product, if you are wanting fresh chocolate, you'd be better off ordering the 4 oz. boxes (I've seen a lot of listings for the 8 oz. boxes on Amazon). And you may want to check with any 3rd party sellers before purchase to clarify which you'll be getting.
I'm not happy that Baker's makes it seem on the box like the new containers are improved because of the "easy break" bar. (I preferred the individually-wrapped squares to the bar.) However, this is still my go-to product for quality and availability reasons.
The chocolate isn't really super "dark"; I'd say it's more normal, and definitely sweet enough.
