I never really liked dark chocolate. When I was a kid and my Mom would buy that bag of Hershey's mini candy bars with Mr. Goodbar, Milk Chocolate, Krackel and the evil "Special Dark".
We greedily gobbled up the Goodbar, Krackel and Milk chocolate, always leaving the Special Dark to those who dared eat something so disgusting. But the last couple of months I have been buying Poulain's Noir Extra chocolate bars to eat with a baguette. The kids love it as an after-school snack, and I love it anytime! Could be my tastebuds changing with age, but I never would have tried it if not for France. Viva la France!
