http://www.auiswiss.com/ I ordered them Tuesday eveing and they arrived Thursday morning. Also I spent $175 and got free shipping which is good because I had about 60 lbs worth of stuff.

I love Callebaut...but, my local bake supply shop stopped carrying it...and I still haven't found a local source. I could order it over the internet..but, would have to purchase large quantities...which I don't want. What I have been doing is purchasing merckens (which I am not that fond of) and mixing it with  ultra or peter's. One pound of merckens to one half pound of ultra/peter's. It is luscious...and (the best part) it does not need tempered !

Peters in an excellent brand. Information is easier to track down too. Merkens is good, but I much prefer the taste of peters. Not as temperamental as chocolate either! (Which is a given)

I have used Bada Bing and it melts nice and tastes great. You can always thin your chocolate with paramount crystals but depends on what you are using it for. I always was a fan of Van Leer but cannot find it locally in Ohio.
