Hi, I’m Ling, your dark chocolate taste tester for the day!

Yes, I know I am pregnant and shouldn’t consume so much caffeine…and yes, I know I have also got gestational diabetes, but…  YOLO!!!  It’s all about moderation!

Besides, dark chocolate has less sugar than the milk and white chocolate variety and it is packed full of antioxidants and positive health benefits blah, blah, blah… { I’m the ‘if it tastes good, I’m eating it’ type of gal }

In the name of blog research, I purchased 5 different types of dark chocolate bars from Aldi { from memory, they’re all under $3 #bargainbuys } and here are my findings…

Let’s start with the Moser Roth varieties…

I love how they come in 25g individually wrapped servings.  I sometimes put one in my handbag for a quick sugar fix and I have less of a tendency to overindulge because they are individually wrapped.

The Finest Dark Chocolate Sea Salt needs no introduction if you are a long time blog reader. I love it because the sweet-bitter-salty balance is perfect.  10/10

I find the Finest Dark 70% Cocoa great for baking in muffins and cookies.  On its own, it gets a bit mundane and I can’t manage a full 25g serving and only eat half – which is a good thing though, isn’t it?  8/10

The newest addition to the Moser Roth family is the Finest Dark Chocolate Ginger.  I love ginger especially with chicken rice, but sadly, I don’t like it in my chocolate.  The sweet crystallised ginger pieces didn’t tickle my fancy AT ALL.  These can all go in Mr LOL’s lunch boxes!!!  1/10

Another new Aldi dark chocolate addition is the Just Organic Dark Chocolate With Sea Salt.  Not only is it organic chocolate but it’s also Fairtrade.  It’s got 70% cocoa so it’s more bitter than the Moser Roth version and I felt that it could up the ante with the salt for a more savoury hit.  9/10

Last but not least, we have the Choceur Dark Hazelnut.  It doesn’t skimp on the hazelnuts at all.  Just think of the nutritional benefits of eating hazelnuts – high in calcium, magnesium and vitamins B and E!  Every bite is perfection and it’s so MORE-ISH.  This is currently my fave dark chocolate bar!!  10/10
