    What does it taste like?
    I've only tasted 86% cacao. What's 100%?

    huh?what do u mean, if u mean how do i deal with the bitterness, don worry u get used to it, one unforunate side-effect though, would be that i am extra sensitive to the sweetness of stuff

    100% is completely bitter and has no sugar. It's disgusting to most people and the taste certainly takes getting used to.

    I like the super dark stuff but can not stand 100%!


    e: Nice sig iPikachu

    Ontopic: it tastes quite nice, to be honest, but then again, I don't like anything less than 70%...
