Whilst at my local Checkers store, I found myself in the chocolate Isle and ogling all kinds of chocolates 🍫😁, which just made want to get all of them. But, my common sense kicked in and I opted for Dark Chocolate which if you didn't know is very good for all of us, as it has all kinds of health benefits to it. If you find yourself purchasing Dark Chocolate the Darker the better. The one I got was 78% Dark. Size: 100g. The dark chocolate brand I purchased is relatively new to me, however I must say, I enjoyed the chocolate and the quality is really good which doesn't come as a surprise to me, as Frey Chocolate was founded in 1887 by brothers Robert and Max Frey. For more than 130 years their passion has lived in every one of the Frey products. Products initially started from chocolate bars and chocolate powder, and today stretches across a very versatile creation of the highest sophistication. Frey Chocolate is the Number 1 chocolate in the Swiss Retail Sector, so they really know a thing or two when it comes to taste.
