Sometimes you just need an emergency fix. I stopped by Food Emporium and could not decide between the store brand, plain 64% bar or the Scharfen Berger "Nibby" 62% bar. So obviously I bought both.
Typically, I'm not the biggest fan of Scharfen Berger, because they intentionally make a fruity blend. People who like that love Scharfen Berger, but it's not my thing. That said, as has been the case previously, I find the presence of nibs really cuts the problems of a fruity bar, and so I love Scharfen Berger's "nibby" bar. But the Food Emporium bar is just... super chocolatey. I mean, it's nothing special. It's the most generic "real" chocolate you can get. In many ways, it is very similar to the CIBO Express bar I got at Laguardia. But I never was snobby about this stuff. This is chocolate. It tastes like chocolate. And that's a great thing. Nothing fancy. Next to that, the "nibby" just seemed to be trying to hard.
Bottom Line: I am a big fan of the "Nibby" bar, but sometimes you just want some plain ol' chocolate.
