Trader Joe's 72% chocolate changed?

Leucadian | Oct 4, 2010 06:28 PM

Has anyone noticed a change in TJ's Pound Plus 72% Belgian dark chocolate? I bought a bar last week and immediately noticed a significant difference in the snap, mouthfeel, and flavor. Softer all around. Before it was much crisper, and had a sharper taste to it (more acid?). The new bar is OK, and acceptable on its own, but it's not at all the same, and not nearly as interesting. I have been buying and eating this for a couple of years now, and I like to think that I know what it should taste like. Am I alone in wondering what happened?
