I have to say, I am already familiar with Scharffen Berger chocolate. I've tried the semi-sweet, bitter-sweet, and unsweetened baking bars (bought at store) and I loved them. Currently my #1 favorite chocolate. I've also tried their cocoa powder (I've only made hot chocolate with it which came out so-so, but I'll keep experimenting with it) and their Sea-Salted Almond (which I've grown to absolutely love).
So I was extremely disappointed when I got this old batch of chocolate from Amazon.
Old chocolate gets discolored, becomes lighter, and loses it's moisture content, so it doesn't linger on the tongue. This was more like eating saw dust that--if you could get passed the texture--vaguely tasted of super-bitter chocolate.
I was shocked, because the expiration date stamped on the package says it expires in July 2014.
I figured I would let it slide if it was just one bar, but i opened another bar, and then the other two--same thing! So, again, I thought, I would love to taste what this was supposed to be, I'll just exchange it for a different batch, since obviously this one was improperly stored, or tempered--I have trouble believing that they would purposefully stamp a fraudulent expiration date on their packages--having had overall wonderful experiences with Scharffen Berger before this.
But apparently you can't return or exchange this chocolate becuase it's a 'grocery' item.
What a great scam! If you're a vendor, and you have some merchandise you know has gone bad, or you've stored improperly, why not just sell it on Amazon, and claim you never knew!Read more ›
My only qualm is that it came melted and seems to melt easily at the temperature of a warm room. I'm not sure why, but if that's what it takes for good chocolate, so be it. Still, I'd be careful about ordering this in hot weather unless you could get someone to pack it with cold packs or something.
and so is the price. I rarely see a deal on Scharffen Berger. To me, the chocolate has almost a berry-type of flavor. If you
love dark chocolate, I think you will love this bar! I bake with Scharffen Berger, too. Hard to beat!
We would buy again - especially on another lightning deal. Keep 'em coming! Thanks!
If you like a good dark chocolate with some real complexity, this is the one for you.
I am buying more. I have it on my subscribe & save list.

I still prefer Alter Eco chocolate to Scharffen Berger, but this is still a good chocolate bar. Alter Eco is just smoother and even more environmentally friendly.Published 21 months ago by Roderic Rinehart
