Since there are a large number of readers here from a huge variety of locations around the world, I thought I'd pose a question of profound world-wide interest.
Who, in your opinion, are the worlds finest chocolate makers? Give me the top three, and in order to keep the "my neighbor makes the world's best" out, be sure that any companies you include in your list must sell chocolate at least 1000km away from the company's point of origin, either directly or indirectly. No small-scale operations, please.
Try not to include chocolatiers in your list -- just chocolate makers. The difference being that chocolatiers buy their chocolate from a chocolate maker, and often only make confections with it (although sometimes they will make chocolate bars as well). Its not a big deal if you don't know about your favorite... just try not to, if you do know.
Compare solid chocolate bars only, however -- not chocolate covered candies.
In my opinion, world's top 3 (#3 and #2 have a huge number of near ties... but #1 is clear, IMO):
#3: Kschocolat (Scotland, United Kingdom)
#2: Dagoba (Pacific Northwest, United States)
#1: Blanxart (Barcelona, Spain)
