On the advice of the lovely folks present, I've acquired 10kg of Callebaut 815nv from Belgian manufacture. $116 shipped results to $5.27/lb shipped, a very reasonable price indeed.

Wholesalemeltinghcocolate.com. The receipt says it's owned by Gygi. Shipping is reasonable at ~ $30/22lb - some sites wanted $25 for 11.

It says it's Belgian, too; given that the American-made 811NV is specified as such, I am very pleased.

You just saved me a bunch of money:-) I looked at my receipt and they charged me for 2 bags!! You may wonder why I didn't catch it, but I was in a hurry and had a gift card and it was all play money to me.

Interesting. I just bought 11 lbs of Callebaut 815 NV callets from Gygi for 49.98 which = 4.54 per lb. My whole order (including milk chocolate (5 lbs) and white chocolate (5.5 lbs) callets ) came to 109.95 plus 26.84 shipping - total= 136.79. I thought this was very reasonable.
