I use a packet each time I make chocolate, so it's a little pricey in my opinion but maybe because I finish off the chocolates pretty quickly. They come in small hexagonal cubes and were pretty easy to chop up. I store them in my pantry and they didn't melt or anything (I'm not the most experienced baker, ok?). On another note, the Foodcraft folks seem very friendly and helpful, great customer service!
