I eat a vegan diet so I am not able to have milk chocolate. In my home country I can buy vegan chocolate that is made from soya drink. It is also possible to have dark chocolate if it is vegan. Years ago I used to be vegetarian. I had lovely chocolate in Bruges in Belgium and in Switzerland. My kids missed chocolate on our trip of one month to South America. I don't eat chocolate very often because I am trying to lose weight. I lost around 4kg on my trip I have just come back home from.

believe it or not, we have some great chocolate spots here in Canada too. there is a chocolate company here called Laura Secord (she warned the British that the Americans were coming during the war of 1812 but has nothing to do with the store). honestly, they make the best chocolates ever! your chocolate adventures, too, would be great fun!

A very interesting share since I am a certified chocolate lover. Very nice to see all the countries where the best chocolates can be found. I also learn so much from others responses on where to find the best chocolates or in what part of the world they can be found. I simply love chocolates I cannot complete my whole week without having a bar of chocolate, white chocolate, dark bitter chocolate, luxury milk chocolates!

I don't think you will find much tourists in Ghana plus you can go over there easily to visit the plantations. You forgot to mention Germany plenty of chocolate and they are also the owners of Milka (former Swiss). And if it comes to chocolate.. it all depends on taste as well what you like or not. Personally I don't like the famous Belgium chocolates because these are always filled with stuff I don't like. Might sound exclusive or luxury or so to others but it's not to me. I would say: how about a hot chocolate with whipped cream and dark chocolate? On my way back from Hungary to the Netherlands I always try to visit the chocolate factory in Laaber (Germany). Nice to see what they make out of chocolate. Don't like everything and too less dark chocolate but plenty of ideas to make it myself or even make it better.

Oh I love all of these ideas and places. If I had to add one to the U.S. it would be to visit a Girhadeli Chocolate Shop. They have malts, ice-cream, and everything from mint chocolate, mint chocolate, all the way to 92 % cocoa chocolate! mm! The one I know of is in San Francisco, CA on the pier.
