There is a local chocolate company that makes chocolate here in Pittsburgh called Sarris. They make the best Chocolate everything! They have a real cool store/ice cream shop at their factory in Cannonsburg PA that I would advise going to if you ever have a sweet tooth. Their chocolate is sold everywhere and in every grocery store locally, but I dont know where else they sell their chocolate other than in the tri-state area. Does anyone else know about and like Sarris chocolate? It is the best!

Swiss chocolate is absolutely the finest in the world, and yes even better than Belgium. Belgium stole the creamy milk chocolate secret, so this is why they are among the top. But still, Swiss is still better.
My favorite is Lindt & Sprungli milk chocolate, which is the finest in the world.
Absolutely love it. I like white and dark chocolate too.

I have tried a wide variety of chocolates
from around the world. Unfortunatly I haven't
found a US brand that gave me the satisfaction
I get from German/Swiss brands.
British bars like Cadbury's (not to be confused
with the one sold in the US under the same name,
that one is by Hershey's and tastes very harsh)
and Galaxy is also a classy bar.
I have heard however that Finland has some
great chocolates, can anyone confirm??
I would like to try that.
Kindest and sweetest regards.

I love the Aero bars from England, but my aunt only sends me those once or twice a year, so I have to settle with my fav. normal american bar, Butterfinger. Also: Wahoo bars from Maleys in Cleveland are really good. So are most anything from Garadelhi in SFO.

The problem with some brands is, that they replace up to 30% of the cocoa-butter with cheap soy oil. That's why they have (very) poor taste and consistence.
There comes also very good chocolate from the Netherlands, I think its called Verkaade which also has a very rich taste.
BA, I don't know if Belgium stole the chocolate secret from Switzerland or vice versa but we have a very long tradition in fine chocolate because the former Belgian colonies in Africa were the main producers of cocoa beans at that time.
Swiss tradition is probably based on their good and plenty milk. But without cocoa they miss an important ingredient for making chocolate instead of cheese
