It's interesting that the chocolates are called 'adult'. To me that implies some sexual connotation. Maybe the company wants to convey the fact that these chocolates are an aquired taste, but I think that they should have chosen a better name.

i keep seeing these in the berkeley bowl grocery store, but i never pick them up BECAUSE of the name... i also think that "adult chocolate" has something to do with bedroom kink and i'm always confused. also, the price seems a little steep for so little chocolate... for local bay area choco delight, scharfen berger is a satisfying fix...

I had these chocolates today and they are fantastic. The reference to "adult chocolate" I believe is due to the fact that it isn't as sweet as milk chocolate which is a preference of children. This chocolate is great and I will buy it again.
