Has anyone tried bars from a French company called Monbaba? You can order a bar of dark chocolate (70%) for €3 from their website. They deliver to “Western Europe” (including Norway).

Just got samples, plus a dvd with fake ‘Chariots of Fire’ music and no commentary. As we guessed there’s no sign that they actually make chocolate, and none of the shots of the lovely shiney factory show anything other than couverture. Tastes like higher grade Callebaut, reminiscent of some Marcolini bars …

They are offering wholesale, but only at a minimum quantity of 4,500 bars! Nice packaging though.
