Here are the recommended best brands:

Dagoba Dark Chocolate chili and superfruit flavors with 74% cacao percentages were ohh so tasty. (Whole Foods)

Endangered Species Organic 72% Dark Chocolate- Cranberry & almond and blueberry were tied for best flavor. (Whole Foods) Endangered species is a public charity foundation that donates 10% of net profits to promoting global change in species and habitat preservation, and humanitarian efforts.  Another great reason to feel good about indulging.

Kpali Organics-Organic goji, cacao, mulberry, pistachio  mix

Dairy Free Dark ChocolateBoom Choco Boom, unfortunately they don’t list the percentage of cocoa.  Best for lactose free dark though.  I am sure competitors will be following suit.
