As per the topic, why are those little thin bars of chocolate and easter eggs so much nicer than a normal block?

It melts easier, doesn't totally fill your mouth with thick gloopy chocolate and you can actually break it without resorting to mining equipment. :)

I actually think chunky chocolate is better, I always loved Yorkies for example,

Yorkies have gotten smaller.

I just buy 6 of thos emassive galaxy bars, melt them down, and then solidyfy them in to a cube.

I generally don't care about thin or not, I tend to stuff my mouth full either way. ^^'
But at least in my country chocolate bars tend to be the high quality good stuff, and christmas or easter chocolate figures are really cheap chocolate.

I think it's because chocolate manufacturers are trying to be clever and save on ingredients. I will shell out for an expensive block of chocolate even if it means I will eat chocolate less often. To clarify, not all expensive stuff is good, but good stuff often is, because good, natural ingredients are more expensive.

Does anyone else like home-made chocolate blocks ? They're quite different, but very nice.
