Source for chocolate
I'm looking for a good quantity (10-20 lbs) of chocolate. Is PFI going to be the most reasonable buy, do you think? I'm using it for hand dipping so I need a good quality chocolate without too much extraneous stuff added ( wax or whatnot). Any suggestions appreciated.
Tops supermarket on 175th and Aurora Ave in Shoreline has a huge bulk foods department. Many many types of candy, baking supplies in bulk bins.
You might also try the bulk foods dept at one of the Town and Country Markets or Central Market. They are likely to have a better quality selection than Tops. But prices will be higher overall.
you might also look into the factory store over at Theo Chocolate in Fremont. They sell broken bars in bulk
