Is there a difference between the two?  I plan on making a bunch of the Oreo Balls: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=164704.0 for Christmas to send give to friends and family.  But I just wonder, if there's a difference between the melting discs and the almond bark, in terms of flavor and consistency.  Is one better over the other?

My experience dipping cake balls with the disks my friends got at the craft store has led me to swear to never stray away from making my own with high quality chocolate chips. Those disks were so inconsistent, sometimes it worked great, sometimes we had to scrap the whole project. And they were loaded with wax. Yuck. Good luck!

I don't think the discs have any flavor. I remember the bark tasting better, but I haven't used it in a long time so not sure if that is an accurate memory or not, but the discs are definitely yuck imo.

I think almond bark is awesome...... I made some white chocolate & peppermint popcorn and the almond bark melted so easily... it was a good consistency.

I think almond bark has a better taste.  But I do use the disks sometimes when I want a variety of color, most people can't tell the difference.
