Cote d'Or Dark Chocolate

I was at BigLots the other day and saw these dark chocolate bars for sale for $1.00 each.
This is for 3.52 oz. of 86% cocoa solid chocolate ! Other bars of different brand names average $1.99 to $2.99 or more for this much dark chocolate.
The expiration date was 1/24/09 so I bought just one so I could open it and see it and find out if it was already starting to go bad. It was perfect. (By the way, if you have some chocolate slightly old -it'll have some white streaks and will be crumbly) you can melt it and make nut clusters or just plain chocolate drops...they turn out nice and dark and fresh looking after they cool.)

John and I prefer this dark chocolate, as well as the Lindt 85%. The Ghirardelli 60% cocoa chocolate is too sweet for us now.
During this time of Thanksgiving, I am very thankful for chocolate!
By the way, I went back and bought 7 more! Gotta have a chocolate stash, you know!
