New Nestle's Chocolate
Yesterday I saw that Nestle's is selling a "premium" baking chocolate in 8 oz. bars. My supermarket had (I might mis-remember the percentages) a 52% and 63% bar, along with chocolate chunks. They were priced at about $3.50 for the 8 oz. bar.
Has anyone tried these yet? I'm wondering if this is just the Nestle Peter's chocolate repackaged for the home user. The price is about the same as what I pay for Callebaut in my market and a little less than El Rey. Can anyone compare these for me?
I don't expect this to become my chocolate of choice, but I'm wondering if this could be a convenient substitute if I'm a few ounces short of the "good stuff."
Thanks for the help.
Okay rockycat, in the interest of pure research I broke into my new bag of the Nestle Chocolatier bittersweet chips. I bought them because I had a great coupon and thought, "it's chocolate how bad could it be?" the chips are 62%cacao. The chocolate has a deep color and intense chocolate flavor. there is a bit of a bitter bite on the tongue. My grandson would not like this in his cookies. They are a grown-up type of flavor. My husband, another enthusiastic chocolate researcher says, "good chocolate flavor that lingers on the tongue". These chips may not make it to the cookie stage.
