It satisfies the chocolate craving and has no sugar, so you can eat as much as you want (and it is self-limiting more than sugary stuff is).
I view it like black coffee and free jazz, you don't get base enjoyment out of it, but it satisfies in ways that gas-station mochas and pop music can't.
-Baker's squares are large and this makes it difficult to bite. Ghirardelli makes a 100% that is far easier to keep around for snacking.
-Baker's has little crunchy granules whereas Ghirardelli is perfectly smooth. The granules are vanilla bean-like in texture and I like them.
-Baker's is far better than Hershey's 100%. Hershey's was almost entirely off-flavors.
I rate them: #1 Ghirardelli 4oz bars then Baker's then Hershey's. I wish there were more choices!
The storage, age, and transportation have a HUGE impact on the presence of off-flavors, so keep your chocolate away from stuff like chewing gum and your spice rack.
Next time you see 100% chocolate around, give it a try. It won't kill you. You might just enjoy a nearly consequence-free way to get your chocolate fix.
I'm used to Baker's Chocolate that's smooth enough to dissolve into hot milk or whatever else I'm mixing it with, and to lend smoothness and creaminess to my preparations. In fact, the Baker's Chocolate I used to get could be stirred into hot milk for hot chocolate without one having to resort to grating it, processing it with a blender, or anything like that. It would just fuse with the milk and the hot chocolate was ready once you added the sweetener of your choice. It was not the case with this chocolate.
This product turned my hot chocolates into a gritty grainy mess, even if I processed it -- though it had already been grated -- through a blender.
I made pastry cream with it and it didn't totally dissolve into the cream, though I heated it twice, first as I was getting the milk heated, and later when I mixed it with the egg yolks and corn starch, and returned it to the burner to thicken the preparation. The cream ended up being kind of gritty and grainy on account of the chocolate. It's a good thing the dessert I made with this pastry cream had other elements in it to allow one not to notice it too much.
I'll use up the Baker's Chocolate I have in only hot chocolate preparations, as at least I can strain it prior to serving it, but I'm not likely to buy it again.
When I started baking, I, naturally, used the same product. Just to try something different, I began testing my recipes with chocolate from other manufacturers: Swiss, French, American, etc., even different makes of Mexican baking chocolate. The results were never as satisfactory.
When I ran out out Baker's chocolate and tried to find it in supermarkets near my home, I was surprised not to be able to locate any for weeks. I then tried Amazon who was able to supply a nice quantity, but more important, I was able to find out the chocolate had not been discontinued.
Thank goodness!! As long as Baker's continues to produce their chocolate and I go on baking, Baker's is what I will be using.

Best for baking. Can be hard to find. Happy to have a supply. Thank youPublished 15 months ago by Helene Doyle
I agree these chocolate bars have changed. I grate semi-sweet Baker's bars for ice cream. Now you can hold the room temp bars in your hand and it never melts while grating. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Crystal S.
Expensive for what it is. The density of the chocolate is better than others including the 4 ounce same brand. No clue why but maybe it is just the batch I got. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Jesse E. Shaw
