Milk Chocolate - Taste Test

It was another De Winter family dinner night, and since we all enjoyed doing the Cream Soda taste test so much, we thought we would do another. Except this time it was time to be more serious!

My dad is Belgian, and they are known for arguably having the BEST chocolate worldwide. My mother and all four of us had our turns working at a Bernard Callebaut chocolate store (Belgian). Needless to say, we are all chocolate snobs.

My mom scraped the words off of all of the chocolate bars and chopped them up onto little plates. At the end of the testing, I was SHOCKED to find out the average scores.

Here are the results:

1. Purdy's
2. Trader Joe's
3. Cadbury's
4. Ritter Sport
5. Bernard Callebaut's
6. Dove
7. Lindt
8. Jersey Milk (dubbed the brown crayon)

I am still shocked! Purdy's has been a border line swear word in our family for decades.
But wait!
I must say... I think this test has made ME more of a chocolate snob... why? Because I know what I like and still voted Bernard Callebaut's as number one... so did my mother. From now on my mother and I will save ourselves a lot of money and buy Purdy's for everyone else but each other. I'll get my mom the good kind.

With all of that chocolate though, and all of the laughing, it was a really great night and one we will all remember for days to come. That's all what doing different mini events like this is all about anyways right? Making memories.
Now go! Eat chocolate!
