Opinions on Gourmet Chocolate

I'd like opinions on these chocolate brands (as well as other suggestions for great chocolate that is available online):
You comments may be used in my blog. Thank you!
Opinions in general? Just as far as chocolate bars are concerned, or are you looking for suggestions on truffles and chocolate pieces, too?
Vosges- I thoroughly enjoyed their chocolate covered caramel marshmallows...they were a gift and I ate the entire box myself, I would definitely have these again. Their caramels are pretty good, but I've had better for less. I think their bars are overpriced, and not as tasty as I expected...the combinations sound exciting, but I was disappointed with the several I've tried. I'd rather have a Zotter bar...interesting combinations, but totally delicious!
Theo-I've had some of their bars, they're good but probably wouldn't be my first choice at the grocery store. Maybe Dagoba or Green & Blacks.
I haven't had Richart or Taza.
I like Vosges's small caramel bites. I like the Stout and Caramel.
I'm much less fond of Theo's bars than of their confections or caramels which are quite good indeed. Their winter collection of confections was delicious.
Richart -- I had their fancy small chocolates box organized in flights for Christmas -- not necessarily what I would have as my go-to -- it's expensive for one -- but definitely a compelling taste experience.
Can't recall tasting Taza.
FWIW, I know I haven't been super specific here....
