Not a brand per se but the amount of Cacao. I did find Ghirardelli Midnight Reverie at 86% but there are many others out there. Bernard Castelain 85%, Galler 85%, Lindt Excellence 85% (swish chocolate), Michel Cluizel 85%, Hachez Cru Premier 88% (german chocolate). Theere are others
A chocolate bar is almost entirely sugar, so a "77 percent" chocolate bar will contain about 23 percent sugar. The higher the percentage number on the wrapper, then, the lower the percentage of sugar and the less sweet, more bitter and complex the flavor of the bar will be.
It all starts with cacao (kah-KAY-oh), not cocoa, beans. Cacao beans are the seeds of the fruit of the tropical tree Theobroma cacao. (Theobroma literally means "food of the gods,") The bitter cacao bean was enjoyed as a spice by the Mayans and Aztecs. When it arrived to Europe it was sweetened with sugar.
