Not surprisingly, one of the most common questions we get here at the store is “What’s your most popular bar?” (right after “What’s your favorite bar?” which can be difficult to answer and thus a question for another time). With a wall of artisan chocolate that boasts over 200 bars from more than 20 countries, choosing which one you want to try can be difficult for even the most seasoned chocolate lover. After all, they are all delicious!

Some take a systematic approach and work from one side of the wall to the other, trying each bar at least once. Some pick a bar they love and stick with it. Some go for what’s new. While others steer clear of the whole problem entirely and choose to simply mainline their chocolate in the form of our delectable drinks.
For those of you who haven’t settled on a system of chocolate eating I’ve compiled a list of our most popular bars this year to help guide your decision making.
Top 10 Bars 2012 (so far)
4. Chocolopolis Salty Dark Bar
5. Rogue Sambirano 70% Dark Chocolate
6. Chocolopolis Spicy Aztec Dark Bar
7. E. Guittard Nocturne 91% Dark Chocolate
8. Chocolat Moderne Sea Salt Dark Chocolate Bar
9. Rogue Hispaniola 70% Dark Chocolate
10. Valrhona Palmira 64% Dark Chocolate
It may come as a surprise to some that a 100% bar would be our most popular but don’t knock it ’till you’ve tried it. While this is no means a guarantee you will love all of the bars on our list, you may feel emboldened to step outside of your comfort zone and try something new.
