Hey there. Lately, I have been dreaming fondly of El Rey chocolate, a specialty chocolate made from what I can only assume are extra-sexy cocoa beans from Venezuela. It comes in thin bars and massive kilogram bars. One time, I bought a milk kilo bar and a semisweet kilo bar from a local wholesale candy distributor and, over three months, picked my way through it. The milk was perfection--I like a deep, rich milk chocolate with lots of personality, light on the dairy overtones. It was similar to Ghirardelli milk except far, far better. The semisweet was perfect for baking, chocolate mousse, and melting on toast.
Is it still as good as I remember it? And does anyone have experience with their mail order? I haven't had a response to a query on their web site about their shipping.
