Belgian or Dutch Chocolate

Have been trying different chocolates. Had some lovely Leonidas from Belgium. Just ate some Scharffen Berger but it was really bitter and not too sweet. What is your favorite to die for chocolate ? I need to be able to buy it in Amsterdam, please.

    Green & Blacks for preference amongst the major producers.

    In terms of Belgian chocolate, Leonidas is not to my taste. But when I'm in the country, I always buy a take home present for myelf from De Groote in Ieper. I see from their wesbite they sell online:

      I was in Amsterdam earlier in the year, and I really loved the chocolate from Puccini Bomboni. I would almost fly back just for more of that! They have a website and 2 locations in central Amsterdam. I was sorry not to have the time to try ArtiChoc. I've heard their chocolate is also wonderful.
