Last year I purchased 30 pounds of milk chocolate wafers and found it to be high quality with a hint of fruitiness, and a crisp, smooth texture. I recently received my order of 75 pounds in the middle of August. The shipping company went out of their way to ensure the clearly marked boxes were kept cool and every wafer arrived intact without any melting. Why one star? Ghirardelli has obviously pulled what Nestle did to Cadbury. This new recipe is flavorless, chalky, and soft. I would recommend WinCo bin 10 pound blocks as the quality is better and it's cheaper. I paid extra for quality and it no longer is to be found from Ghirardelli. Avoid this product if you and your clients require something better than a Hershey's bar.

Absolutely the best chocolate around! for some reason the milk chocolate does not set on its own to hard. It has to e refrigerated for a few minutes. The white chocolate doesn't do that.

How do you get this chocolate to set? I’ve tempered it to 86 degrees, let it cool back down to dip and mold and it won’t harden, it’s still gooey! I can’t get it out of molds. Help! What can I do!?

Bobby J. from BJ's Goodies on 01/12/2021
         

Best chocolate I have ever used , I use it for waffles grapes and also use it for fruits . Everyone loves them . I melt them with a lil canola oil and the rest is history

Rashad A. from Chocolate House on 04/17/2022
         

I bought this chocolate and was unaware that it needs to be tempered in order to use it. I have tried multiple times to temper with no luck what so ever. I have now a 25lb box of chocolate that is un-useable to my business and have suffered a loss to my small home business. Can this be remedied?

I ordered a 25 lb box of Ghirardelli wafers last February and they were excellent. This year I decided to order these for cocoa bombs and when the box arrived I realized they changed the type of chocolate. The white chocolate is still coating chocolate however this chocolate requires tempering and I highly doubt it was actually Ghirardelli. The chocolate was very powdery and had an odd taste to it and half of the box was melted in a layer to the bottom and unusable. If also took a VERY long time to ship which makes me think they could not get the coating wafers so just decided to switch it to this. Buyer beware. I do not recommend.

I am very disappointed in these chocolate wafers! They are not tempering properly. What a waste! I wish I could get my money back. First of all I thought they were no tempering needed like the ones you buy in the store but found out that's not the case so I tried tempering them. They don't want to set up right.

Never disappointed with this company. Professional. Timely shipping. Packaging awesome. Products are great and when ordering my Chocolates very fresh. In the past I ordered 50 bar stools, they arrived with not one issue. Thank You Lynda

So upset. Bought this thinking it was milk chocolate melting wafers and it doesn't temper.... took about 40 mins in the fridge to even slightly dry up. I don't understand why all the reviews before 2020 are great and then everyone starts saying the same thing.

Chocolate was not what I was expecting. Melts in your hand and very hard to work with. Was expecting the the original Ghirardelli Chocolate wafers that I have been using to coat my sweets. These are not that the same. I don’t know what I’m suppose to do with 25 lbs of chocolate now!

The beat chocolate on the market!!!I love it will continue to purchase. It melts we and is perfect for dipped fruit and Gamache. We love it!

Crystal D. from Alyssa's Heavenly Sweets on 01/03/2021
         

Disappointed and stressed! I received this chocolate today for my very small, in home, hot chocolate bomb making business. I've been using Ghirardelli milk chocolate melting wafers I've been buying in store (and it's been great!). Having to travel from store to store to find has been tiresome so I found this and ordered. WELL, this chocolate does not harden!! I melted it without issue but when I tried to use it, it stays soft causing it to be flimsy, break and nearly impossible to get out of the shell. I can't use this product for what I need it for, so after waiting a week thinking I was getting the right product I'm back to square one. I've already had customers pay and order so I HAVE to have/find the correct chocolate. What am I to do with 25 POUNDS of chocolate?! I am hopeful the company does the right thing and allows me to return this for a full refund. SUPER disappointed

I was expecting these to be the same type of melting wafers as the white coating wafers, but unfortunately they are not. The product is good for those looking for regular chocolate, but I would not recommend if you are looking for an easy melting wafer for molds. The taste is still amazing though!

I purchased 25 lbs of this chocolate to make Hot Chocolate Bombs and it is useless!! I melted some of the chocolate and the chocolate would not release from the molds as it was too soft! Was told by another baker that it needed to be tempered which was not it the description. If I’d know this I would not have purchased! I should’ve know something was wrong when this was the only chocolate avail (seems like world wide) to order. I love the name rand and was hoping to give my customers quality product but 25lbs is useless to me at this point!! I lost money because I was t able to produce product. Such a disappointment

This is great for baking, baking chocolate covered treats and for making the most delicious frosting!!! The price is also unbeatable, will definitely purchase again.

Great chocolate, it tastes so good with coconut flakes on my waffles. Great price for this amazing product. My customers keep coming back for more.

These wafers melt and coat amazingly and the texture and flavor are great. The shine from the chocolate really adds visual appeal to every product.

Will D. on 03/18/2020
         

It is a great quality but super soft once hardened. I was hoping for something like a melting wafer that I could easily use to make some things, it’s not that. But the customers like the taste a lot.

I love this item for chocolate dipped strawberries and pretzels. It creates a quality, consistent product time after time. My customers love the flavor and I love the price!

These milk chocolate Ghirardelli Wafers are absolutely delicious I find myself eating them as they are by the handfuls I also use them for my chocolate covered strawberries

Ghirardelli milk chocolate wafers are always my first choice in brand when it comes to wafers. Other brands do not compare to Ghirardelli. The flavor is always rich and always high quality,

Paulina L. on 03/02/2019
         

The chocolate tasted fabulous. it was great for dipping chocolate covered strawberries. If you need very much chocolate buying in bulk is the best way to go.

Mackenzie B. on 09/19/2018
         

This chocolate is a lot better then the white chocolate. i dont know why but it's the same company, i would buy this again when i run low.

These wafers are great for baking, we use them to make cake balls and other special treats. They melt and mix better that other chocolate pieces.

Tyler B. from Judes Health And Java House on 03/03/2018
         

We only use Ghirardelli chocolate at our store. Their milk chocolate is creamy and smooth and awesome for dipping things like strawberries and gourmet caramel apples.

Melissa P. from Sweet Peach's Candy And Confections on 02/22/2018
         

I loved Ghirardelli anything but this chocolate flavor is excellent. We used a lot of chocolate since we were baking cookies for my brothers wedding. Great for melting

Gina P. on 02/19/2018
         

For what you get, this is honestly a great price. We have ordered this bag many times for all of our bakeries and we go through it surprisingly quick.

Creamy milk chocolate taste..great for ganache and adding to my frosting. I wish this chocolate could be used in molds like the white and dark chocolate.

Ghirardelli 25 lb Stanford milk chocolate wafers are great for creating milkshakes cupcakes and chocolate pecan pies. Can create amazing recipes that your clients will always remember

Nicholas R. on 09/22/2017
         

Great chocolate wafers for coating, baking, icing or anywhere else you would need to add real chocolate. I also love to eat these out of the box straight.
