deZaan Chocolate Review

What do you fellow chocolatiers think about deZaan chocolates? DeZaan positioning seems to be high quality at competitive pricing.

What do you guys think about Chocoduc truffle shells?

Also, I seen Keller, Callebaut, and Pastry 1 (Paris Gourment brand) ----> any thoughts on these as well?
