They're all *good* chocolates, so they aren't cheap. But I cannot FATHOM eating a whole 2-3oz dark chocolate "bar" in one sitting. One of those things will last me about a week, if I'm eating chocolate every day. Dark chocolate is an acquired taste, if you don't already like it, so give it a chance.

I generally get my chocolate from: Chocosphere (based in Portland), and winter is a perfect time of year to do shipping. I have found Theo locally (but, it's a Seattle company, and I live in the Puget Sound ;) ), and have found Cluizel and Castelain at Cost Plus World Market, which is fairly common on the West Coast.

Enjoy Life's is ok, but ... well, it's not *good* chocolate. :P (Yes, I am a self-admitted chocolate snob. I think Hershey's chocolate is foul tasting. So, your mileage may vary with my advice. :D )

I just recently foudn Enjoy Life's "boom CHOCO boom" dark chocolate bars and they are YUMMY!!! I have always been a chocolate snob and have been dancing a happy dance since finding these. They are Dairy-free, Gluten-free, Nut-Free and Soy-Free!!! I found it at Kroger's and a 1.4 oz. bar costs 1.59. I looked them up online and they seem to run about 1.79 on some of the shopping sites. 1.4 oz doesn't seem like much, but it has 4 sections to it and I try to stick to having one section a day. It's a WONDERFUL treat!!

Oh, I see you're in WA. If you're near Seattle, you can head over to Theo (it's in Fremont) and do a factory tour (free public tours, paid group tours w/ 10 person minimum). It's awesome, with lots of tasting.

the boom choco boom with crispy rice was good until i tried 'dark chocolate dream with almond'. it's like $3 bar but it's bigger then the enjoy life boom choco bar. I got it at kent nature's market, I don't remember if Whole Foods or PCC has it. I don't care for dark chocolate but to me this tastes like real milk chocolate. It's dairy/gluten free. also vegan chocolate chips are pretty good frozen.

Whole Foods, Bartell's, and a few other random places.

Thank you so much. I live in the Puget Sound as well....I'm about an hour from the Candian border. But when I visit my mom in Everett I will be sure to check out Cost Plus World Market. I think the have one in Redmond. Thank you so much...I will check them all out on the web.

I just found out Pier One Imports carrys Theos chocolate bars so I will be on my way down there today. The lady on the phone told me they have five varieties so hopefully they will have ones I can consume.
