    I don't have a Waitrose anywhere near me so I eat Lindt 90% which is absolutely divine, and 3 days a week I treat myself to a 25g bar Moser Roth 85% from Aldi at under 5g carbs per bar, also delightful xx

    I like that one too for a 20g treat.. seems less "dry" than most 90%.. good find.

    Lint 90% dark chocolate is about 15g carbs per 100g serving or something and it tastes immense.

    I've got some Montezuma 100% dark..... it's an acquired taste but 8g of carbs per 100g. It tasted very powdery. I only bought it to see what it was like.

    Have you tested your sugar level after eating it?.

    Have Lidls 95% at the moment. I only eat one square a day and it doesn’t affect levels.

    Started buying this as Montezuma is so expensive.

    Godiva 90% dark chocolate is 14g per 100g. Very nice. Usually £2, but is on offer at the moment in Sainsbury’s at £1.50.

    I'm with @Thomas the Tank and the Lidl JD Gross bars.
    I crept upwards from 75%, to 85%, then 90%.
    That proved to be too much for me, so I'm back down to 85%. I have to be disciplined and break a single square off before returning the pack to the fridge. If the whole pack follows me to the living-room, I struggle not to tidy up the loose edges.
