I was mostly wondering out loud whether the rather mild chocolate you see coming from German brands like Hachez or Feodora is representative of a national preference. It would seem so, at least from what I've observed. That wouldn't necessarily apply to any one given individual or company but would be a statistical pattern. I've not had ice cream in Germany, so there I was speculating (based on Polarbear's experiences) that perhaps there was some commonality of taste themes here.

I agree with what you are saying when it comes to Hachez and Feodora, Alex. But as far as I know, more people here prefer Lindt. You may have a point though. Plenty like Milka and I think Milka (far from being good chocolate) is very bland.
It might be a regional thing.
And, yes, Polar, Rausch is a good example for a German chocolate that has distinct flavor.
