Sure, sweetie. What do you need?

If you can get me a box of "Trinidad" brand chocolate, I won't hunt you down and throttle you in your sleep Donn! ;)

These? (http://www.fanniemay.com/store/item.asp?item_id=194)

No.
Not even close.
This is the best dark chocolate I've ever had Donn..... It's outrageously good, and it's only available in Europe apparently.....

HaChaCha! (http://www.worldwidechocolate.com/shop_pralus153.html)

Tain't cheap!

Nope.... Not that either... But that's closer.
And Donn...... I'm still not calling you "Sweetie"or "Beautiful" even if you find it...;)

Whoppers are good, too, but they make your tongue sore the next day.

Milk chocolate???

Yuck.

At a minimum, Newman's Own peanut butter cups, but even they are waaaay too sweet.

Reeses, like Twinkies, have a taste which transcends Cape Cod Sobbery. You can get them in Anywhere, USA, and shovel them down.omfg!!!

surely you mean 'snobbery':D:D:D

More info, there, Doug. I'll be heading across the pond in the summer - perhaps I can execute a chocolate run. (Plus, I'd like to try some when I'm there!)

Not food. "food".

Yeah, Lefty. They deep fry the things. Snickers and Mars bars, too!

If Carter still has the last desicated wrapper, crumpled up and neglected in a back corner of her desk drawer at work, where she absconded the last delectible morsel of Trinidad Chocolate to whilst I was incarcerated in some foul doctor's office or other over the course of the last 4 months since I last saw it, carefully (NOT apparently carefully enough) concealed behind a blue ceramic bowl of uncertain origin, I will scan it and post it to help with the search..... This could very well be the most important mission the forum has ever been tasked to...... I kid you not......

I want some, too. I can take it or leave it but I could score some real points with the missus with some of that Trinidad stuff. :D

I don't recall calling Twinkies food. Did I call them food? I remember speaking of shoveling them down, but I don't believe I called them food.

"Sobbery," Paul, was not an error.

Perhaps I'm a bit daft (I prefer to believe 'chocolate deprived') but.... I don't see where to order this product.

Any links?

They will not sell It outside LIDL chain as it was created for LIDL.

Green and Black ???

Bought by Cadbury Schweppes - thence by Kraft......

I think that the Trinidad stuff is Lindt - branded for Lidl.

Anyroads that leaves a few problems.

1. Can you legally import chocolate into the "land of the free"?
2. How much are you willing to pay.
3. All our airplanes are grounded.
4 - Have you tried any of the other high-coca chocolates...

In that case they seemed to have kept their grubby paws off , Green and Black's is very good ....I prefer it to the Lindt .:)

Just got sold a month ago. Green and Black was almost as good as Guittard. I fear for its future, however, at this point. I'm on the lookout for something that won't sell out and is as good as Green and Black.

Right now, Dagoba is hanging steady.

Lefty? What is distinctive about Trinidad?

You can get Newman's anywhere too. Just have higher standards for chocolate and look around.

The Trinidad chocolate is not Lindt. It makes Lindt taste like a Hershey bar.
The next best one I've had is from Grenada.
It's slightly bitter at first, but as it disolves it mellows and intensifies. It's difficult to describe.
I'm not a chocoholic. I don't eat sweets as a general rule, but this stuff is deliscious! A bar could last me a week.... or a couple of hours.

Lindt tastes like Hershey bars whether you have Green and Black, Dagoba, Guittard, or this here fancy Trinidad chocolate you're after. Lindt is a sorry imitation of decent chocolate.

The Grenada chocolate is certified organic, and operated as a employee owned co-operative. I'm not sure about the Trinidad chocolate, but the cocoa plantation that I've seen on Tobago (The one that hasn't been wiped out by the cocoa blight) didn't have any child laborers..... This isn't Alabama we're talking about here Paul.....:rolleyes:
