Dark Belgian Chocolate Bouchard Chocolate Overview
Dark chocolate Napolitains by Bouchard Chocolate are made from 72% cacao. They are not too bitter, not too sweet and, when intact, smooth. These bite sized chocolates carry a rich, dark chocolate taste that bitter sweet chocolate lovers will thoroughly enjoy.
Caveat: I received a sampling of these chocolates in exchange for an honest review. Unfortunately, the samples I received were a mixed bag of variably damaged chocolates. Some were so heat damaged they were powdery. Others were melted and a few were close to pristine. Regardless of the state in which the chocolate found itself, it tasted good. Which, I believe, is the sign of a quality chocolate.
Price: Variable, depending on size package. Available at Cost Plus World Market and other purveyors of fine chocolates.

Who Are Bouchard Chocolate Dark Chocolate Napolitains Suitable For?
If you love dark, barely sweet chocolate, these are your chocolates. Because they come in individually wrapped, bite-sized packages they make great snacks and, perhaps, gifts. I could totally see these laid on a pillow or on a silver platter as a welcome gift for a guest!
Despite the heat damage of the chocolates I received, they tasted really good. I love dark chocolate — the darker the better — so these really satisfied. I could taste the quality not only in the flavor of the chocolate, but also in the texture. They were smooth — not grainy as some lesser quality chocolates can be — and had a rich, complex flavor, even when damaged.
