Hello... new to this site. There was a store in my neighborhood (suburban Philadelphia) that sold single origin "chips" in a few varieties. I remember Sao Thome being one, but I really loved the Tanzania (I believe it was 75%). This place also made fudge with these, but I would buy just the chips alone. I'm new to fine chocolate, first trying these. This store recently closed down, and I can't get a reply to my emails from their website either. Anyone here have any info on this type, or something similar to recommend? People in this fourm seem to be the most knowladgeable I've found so I'm trying my luck here. This place also sold candy- exclusively Caffarel, but I haven't seen these chips related to them. If anyone can tell me anything about this Tanzania I'd appreciate it.

You might be looking for Tanzanie Single Origin from Cacao Barry. It's sold by Chocosphere:

If you like the Tanzania chocolate, you'll be pleased to find out that Cacao Barry/Callebaut, who produces said chocolate, also produces a variety of other chocolates. Browse http://www.chocosphere.com to see the variety. Depending upon your personal taste, there will be better selections of chocolates from other manufacturers, of course, so don't just limit yourself to one company. Half the fun is discovering which chocolates you like.

I've also seen napolitain pieces of a Tanzania orgin chocolate from Lake Champlain. See:

It 99.9% likely that this is a repackaged Callebaut product, but this might be the packaging that you saw...

Seneca, chances are 100% that it is repackaged Callebaut [;)]

Well, "repackaged"... they had them loose displayed in a small bowl, then bulk in a pastry mixing bowl in a fridge behind the counter... I never actually saw packaging until they put it in one of their bags. Just checked the Callebaut website... looks like it! Thanks!

Oh, btw, seneca, that Tanzania chocolate replaced the Venezuela 60% LC had running for quite some time. About time too.

Good to know...I probably should have mentioned that I thought the Tanzania was quite tasty :-)

Vosges also uses this Tanzania 75% for the Oaxaca bar, and imo, they couldn't have picked a better chocolate. The redness of both the guajillo and the chocolate pair perfectly here. And it's such a deep and heavy chocolate too, cut by the mild heat.
