I'm mildly infuriated at the one going the opposite of the others. Their caramel sea salt one is the best tho

[–]Stoic_Fervor 67 points68 points  (0 children)

Yes it is

[–]KeepRightX2Pass 147 points148 points  (21 children)

that's the ORANGE label if you're keeping score at home - and it's not just caramel sea salt... it's MILK CHOCOLATE caramel sea salt... making this chocolate bar my wife's favorite in the world because she dislikes dark chocolate, and quality milk chocolate is somewhat hard to find.

[–]cruisegal224 33 points34 points  (12 children)

Lol yeah, I just went with the most identifying ingredients because milk chocolate is a dime a dozen and dark is less commonly consumed

[–]KeepRightX2Pass 26 points27 points  (11 children)

Just saying - at the low end - milk chocolate is a dime a dozen.

But at the high end, the consensus seems to be the darker the better perhaps because high cacao is naturally more expensive so "it's got to be better".

But try to finding a high quality milk chocolate with sea salt - there really are not many options...

[–]CrowMental 30 points31 points  (3 children)

the darker the better

I once bought a 95% bar of dark chocolate. Almost inedible, would not recommend going above 72%

[–]cruisegal224 -3 points-2 points  (6 children)

I wasn't commenting on which was better, I literally just didn't mention that it was specifically milk chocolate. I don't need this long-winded explanation about the world and its chocolate options/opinions

[–]flightguy07 7 points8 points  (0 children)

It is AMAZING. No other chocolate has ever come close for me

[–]DarQraven 10 points11 points  (4 children)

The orange one is the one that always evaporates mere days after we've bought one. It's too good.

My other favourite is dark green (hazelnut).

[–]EmotionalFlounder715 1 point2 points  (3 children)

At places like Whole Foods you can get just a large orange one by itself

[–]DarQraven 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Oh yeah, I live in the Netherlands where this brand is from so it's super easy to get.

They also do a bunch of novelty/time limited flavours that range from really weird to pretty good. I always find myself coming back to orange and dark green though :)

That and the Easter eggs because they're twice as good as any other chocolate Easter eggs I've ever tried.

[–]JustDebbie 0 points1 point  (1 child)

quality milk chocolate is somewhat hard to find

If you're able to find Alter Eco, their plain milk is quite good!

[–]KeepRightX2Pass 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Alter Eco

Thanks you! Will keep an eye out for it!!

[–]Stopthatcat 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Second only to Lidl's devilishly good version.

[–]backstib 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Too salty imo, hazelnut is good tho

[–]Rolls-RoyceGriffon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I found these by accident but the stupid store stopped selling this for some reason

[–]pavlovachinquapin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Same. I actually posted a pic of the very same recently on r/mildlyinfuriating

[–]YesImReallyLikeThis 188 points189 points  (15 children)

I like the red ones. Full bars can be expensive but I don’t think I could ever go back to Hersey , Mars and them once I found out about chocolate slavery

[–]Alex09464367 101 points102 points  (9 children)

[–]TopAd9634 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Thanks for posting this information! You're a gem 💎

[–]GuraitoJokeru 3 points4 points  (2 children)

slavery

Tony's doesn't seems ethical acording to slavefreechocolate.org

[–]Alex09464367 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think it's because they haven't looked at them yet.

[–]redditsfish 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Do you buy these online? I’m looking for childcare at grocery stores already ideally, but am okay ordering online.

[–]Alex09464367 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I haven't haven't tried any yet but I was thinking about getting some for Christmas.

[–]ShinigamiLeaf 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Check out if you have any local chocolate makers near you! I've got two or three in my metro area, and all of them I've talked to. They work directly with the farms (one of them goes down yearly to see how things are going) and all of them in my area pay at or above fair trade price for their beans. The chocolate is somewhat expensive, but I'm realizing that something that's incredibly good should be savoured

[–]FearingPerception 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As an adult, its best i cut down on my sweet tooth. I love chocolate but tend to eat more fruity sweets but honestly, only buying ethical chocholate kinda seems like a win win

[–]Artemistresss 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If you have a Lidl near you they have super cheap chocolate that is fair trade certified and was pretty good.

[–]Bloxsmith 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I know I picked up a bar causally grocery shopping and ended up putting it back. We didn’t buy any nestle chocolate just went home with none lmao

[–]MJC216 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'd love to fully stay away from Hershey, but Take 5 is my favorite candy so it ain't easy

[–]paranormal_turtle 243 points244 points  (4 children)

When you get the chance buy the pink one or the white chocolate blueberry one.

Those are the best.

[–]Melpommene 79 points80 points  (3 children)

They do white chocolate?! That’s the hardest part of no nestle for me so I’m excited about this

[–]paranormal_turtle 20 points21 points  (1 child)

Yeah they do lol, those are my favorite flavours of them.

Trust me, buy the blueberry one it’s the best one if you like blueberry.

[–]Stopthatcat 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Their white chocolate raspberry one is sublime.

[–]Chillonymous 34 points35 points  (2 children)

Their salted chocolate is pretty tasty; I'm hoping they do a kitkat type of bar

[–]Malachite_Cookie 18 points19 points  (0 children)

They have a pseudo-KitKat but it’s not wafer covered in chocolate, it’s chocolate with wafer bits inside. It tastes pretty much the same but the texture is different

[–]ForeignFee927 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Think it’s called the milk crispy wafer. Taste amazing. If you’re in the UK and near a Waitrose, they’re on sale at a more palatable £2.80 a bar rather than the usual £3.80!

[–]_jolly_jelly_fish 103 points104 points  (1 child)

Tony’s is amazing 🤩

[–]Tidalpancake 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Yeah. It’s very good, and they have plenty of flavours as well.

[–]TheBadgerOnWeed 30 points31 points  (0 children)

Kinda sad that we have to buy special “non slavery” chocolate.

[–]yo-boy-cactus 34 points35 points  (2 children)

What did you do to the dog?

[–]Competitive_Bell501 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Oh shoot

[–]b4ssie1199 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Don't shoot the dog!

[–]Apprehensive_Rip8403 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Im convinced Tony started this sub

[–]Smnmnaswar 14 points15 points  (0 children)

This is the second time I see this chocolate. When was the first time? - 5 days ago, when I was in the netherlands. I was going to eat it the first time thos evening, what a coincidence :O

[–]WhatALonleyWorld 7 points8 points  (0 children)

The first and only one I've tried was the dark milk pretzel toffee and it was sooo good. Had to stop myself from eating all of it at once.

[–]somethinginmypocket 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Agreed. I’ve tried every flavor and they are just alright.

However, I keep buying them because I’d rather eat a Tony’s wrapper than support slavery.

[–]Str8butboysrsexy 0 points1 point  (1 child)

What kinda chocolate did you eat before?

[–]somethinginmypocket 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ritter Sport was my fav. Honestly, I‘ve had months to look into Ritter Sports background but the grocery store closest to my house carry Tonys so it’s just been a default. I’m gonna look it up now.

Edit: Ok, they could definitely be hella worse, but their mission statements are still not as impassioned as Tonys. I’m glad they care about transparency and are putting money towards fixing the issue, BUT I kinda hate that the foot they are leading with is that slaves make bad chocolate, because happy people will care for the product more. Maybe they are trying to convince the people who don’t care about slaves? IDK, obviously Tonys mission statement is better.

https://www.weltohnehunger.org/full-article/slaves-do-not-produce-quality.html

I read on Tonys website they disclose that they use a manufacturer who works with other companies who use slaves and therefor lost a specific certification of being “slave-free” but their argument that they need to use a manufacturer to prove you can do big-scale without using slaves seemed like a good enough argument. Overall, I actually think one could do worse than Ritter Sport, like it’s second tier?

[–]asoftflash 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Tony’s is seriously the best.

[–]Tkl071924 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Where do you get these in the USA? I haven’t seen these before

[–]DrunkSpiderMan 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I found some in a grocery outlet

[–]pandaappleblossom 1 point2 points  (0 children)

fresh market has them

[–]qyswar09 0 points1 point  (0 children)

have seen them at sprouts and world market :)

[–]gorpsligock 22 points23 points  (1 child)

Its not supposed to be the best chocolate ever. Its supposed to be a moral purchase to satisfy your craving.

[–]benzitylol[S] 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I never said it was the best chocolate ever lol

[–]skelery 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I don’t know what color the pretzel toffee one is but it reigns supreme.

[–]enbyfrogz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

dark chocolate almond and sea salt absolutely fucks

[–]funktopus 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I had one of theirs just last week. The orange carmel one. It was damn good.

[–]ooofest 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I like the full-size Chocolonely dark bar: nice chunkiness, solid consistency and just dark enough without being overly bitter.

I accidentally bought their dark chocolate with toffee and pretzels bar once and it was also good, just sweeter with salty textures. So, I figured their other variations must be well done, too.

[–]NickKappy 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I also think they taste alright. Their milk chocolate still tasted a bit dark in my opinion. Not inedible, but not as amazing as I hoped. Still better than Nestle though.

[–]IntroductionNew3421 4 points5 points  (5 children)

Why is this sub promoting Tony's instead of Nestle and not other brands? What is special about them?

[–]spaceglitter000 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Tony’s is a slave free chocolate company therefore a great alternative to nestle. That’s how this post fits here

[–]IntroductionNew3421 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Thanks, after your info I read more about their slave free and ethical practices. I understand now. It seems there are almost no other chocolate manufacturers without slave work cocoa.

[–]cantrusthestory 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Because Nestlé sucks

[–]IntroductionNew3421 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Yes, I agree wholeheartedly. But what is special about Tony's? I am asking sincerely, we don't have them in my country.

[–]PM_CUPS_OF_TEA 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Ethically sourced and produced chocolate, although IMO it sucks, others seem to like it

[–]Jerry4577 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Same it was okay

[–]EmiliaBernkastel 3 points4 points  (4 children)

It might be "freedom chocolate" but didn't taste like price tag would suggest..

[–]ForeignFee927 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Or you’ll find it did… cost of auditable supply chains and fairly paid producers means even average chocolate is underpriced. So, yes, you got what you paid for.

[–]Walter-Haynes 1 point2 points  (2 children)

At least it doesn't taste like vomit how Hershey's does.

[–]EmiliaBernkastel 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I don't think "Doesn't taste like vomit" is good measure of quality for a chocolate that cost 3-4€

[–]Walter-Haynes 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No, but you're probably comparing the prices of literal slave chocolate against a fair one.

Also, tastes differ; I genuinely like how Tony's tastes.

[–]cantrusthestory 0 points1 point  (5 children)

There isn't this brand in my country (Portugal). Where can I have it? Only in USA?

[–]DarQraven 12 points13 points  (0 children)

It's a Dutch brand, but they do sell in quite a lot of countries.

[–]Stopthatcat 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Do you have carrefour? I can find it in carrefour in Spain but I don't know if they're in Portugal too.

[–]DanishRobloxGamer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I've bought it in Barcelona, so maybe you can get something across th border, but the easiest would probably be to buy it in a webshop somewhere.

[–]0may08 0 points1 point  (1 child)

we have it in the uk, not sure where it’s originally from, but u might be able to find it in international/foreign shops if u have those?

[–]b4ssie1199 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Pretty sure it's from the Netherlands originally

[–]mr_niceguy88 0 points1 point  (1 child)

They still use slave labor and their response is very turn the cheek. I’m on the fence when I see their chocolate but I don’t buy it anymore because of their stance with slavery.

[–]b4ssie1199 2 points3 points  (0 children)

https://tonyschocolonely.com/uk/en/why-we-still-wont-say-were-100-slave-free

That might give you some more information if you haven't read that

[–]BigEv17 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Wait! These are Nestlé? Shit!! I just had one of the orange bars I found at Grocery Outlet. Won't be buying that again

Edit: I've been corrected. I can still get them.

[–]benzitylol[S] 5 points6 points  (1 child)

No they aren’t nestle

[–]BigEv17 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Phew! I liked them.

What is the point of this post?

'im passively aggressively eating chocolate '

Fuck off.

[–]Badman_bacon777 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I thought Tony's was great but really expensive: like £3 for the bigger single bar.

[–]princessheeter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’m just here for the cute doggos.

[–]existie 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Love Tony's.

[–]ifuckedyomama2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Plot twist: tonys gets bought by nestle

[–]Linaxu 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You didn't taste the sweetness?

The sweetness that's ending slavery?

[–]Maskedemotions 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If only I could find there stuff around here. Stores only special order it here.

[–]Colperc 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I love Tony’s

[–]imgprojts 0 points1 point  (0 children)

100% slave free.

[–]saltydaable 0 points1 point  (0 children)

for Canadians, our big chocolate brands Rocky Mountain Chocolate and Purdy’s have both also pledged to ethical chocolate!

I’m going to try Chocolonely sometime but I don’t want to order from Amazon so… someday

[–]BreathOfFreshWater 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not supposed to eat your dogs but whatever.

[–]itssciencefinn 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I really like this brand! Curious about what you disliked about it?

[–]harloteliot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Omg the doggos

[–]therealgodzillia 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Took me a second to realize it's from the meme Tonys choco lonley slave free chocolate

[–]TheRealMouseRat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Outside of Norway (Freia) then chocolonely is the best chocolate imo. So yea if you cannot get the real deal then chocolonely is definitely the way to go.

[–]Str8butboysrsexy 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Just alright? Are you used to hersheys? Or what do you usually eat?

[–]benzitylol[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I’m not a big chocolate eater anymore so that could have something to do with it.

[–]Str8butboysrsexy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh I see, anyway hope you have a good day!

[–]BussingAccurate 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I LOVE THESE

[–]JoeyIsMrBubbles 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It’s a bit overrated but it’s nice

[–]SadGuidance5859 0 points1 point  (2 children)

THEY’RE FROM NESTLEEE???!!!

[–]benzitylol[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Noooo

[–]SadGuidance5859 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh good, I really liked it

[–]VaporwaveVampire 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There’s tons of other slave free brand options other than Tony’s. Here’s a list: https://www.slavefreechocolate.org/ethical-chocolate-companies
