How believable is all the data... Consumer report could be a big scam💩... I’m quite suspicious in surveys like this when 💰 can buy everything and everyone🤑

Thanks searcher7, but "heavy metal food scientist"? I suspect that’s a title he gave himself. Maybe he has a valid point though. Not sure

I believe that the Consumer Labs’ report identified only cocoa sourced from South America as having excessive cadmium levels.

I don’t believe consumer labs... It’s a bias organization (they all are) 🤔💩

... in conclusion about the chocolate, I eat Ghirardelli 86 and Lindt 85- 90. I’ve decided this is my poison 🤣

Ah ok, I see. Thanks for clearing that up. I had googled the guy and some of the results were less than flattering

My poison: Lindt 95% 16-20 grams after dinner.  Unlikely to give this up as every other chocolate I have tried tastes too sweet.

Also guessing about Ghirardelli 92%, which in our house we decide "passes," since the Ghirardelli line seems to fare well.

Thanks for the link to As You Sow, Bob. The only dark chocolate I see that they deem safe is Sam’s Choice 90%, although testing was in 2018. My local Walmart hasn’t had it for a while, but I enjoyed it.
