Ghirardelli Squares 60% Cacao

After my unpleasant experience with the Hershey's 60% cacao bar, I wanted to try another mass market bar at the same cocoa percent to compare and hopefully contrast.

I grabbed this small item for this purpose. There is none of the grainy/chalky texture I found in the Hershey's and none of the metallic aftertaste. The bar has a crisper snap when you break it, and there is a more lasting, pure chocolate aftertaste. This is more along my expectations for a mass market 60% chocolate. Certainly not as refined as the madécasse 63% bar we tasted Thursday night, but respectable. 6.1
