The candy melts by Guittard are good. They come in dark and white.
You can also find the "Almond Bark" bars in white, dark and milk chocolate.
the Almond bark bars are fine for making dipped pretzel rods, almond bark and dipping nuts and things like that.
The melting chocolate, they come is a disc shape, melt easily and they taste a bit better than the almond bark chocolate.
the draw back to the almond bark is that you have to be careful when melting it, melt 2/3 of the chocolate then add in the other 1/3 this is sort of a cheat way to "temper" the chocolate. The melting chocolate discs do not need to be tempered but use caution when melting them as they can scorch easily.
Real cheap chocolate tastes cheap, waxy like and it has little flavor.
If you are taking the time to make good candy, English Toffee, Truffles, fudge and things like that where chocolate will be the prominent flavor do everyone a favor and use good quality chocolate
