True Chocolate Bars:
Chocolate bars come in various forms, ranging from milk chocolate to dark chocolate bars with further distinctions in between. Though many milk chocolate bars can easily fall into the category of candy bars, some high-quality artisan bars may be more of a culinary experience than a candy bar geared mostly as a cheap mouth pleasure. Dark chocolate bars with 60% or more cacao is where you start getting proper dark chocolate bars and hits the sweet spot with some sweetness but also having expressive flavor.
