Baker's Chocolate

The fudgy brownies I made had a bit of an off taste. I blame the Baker's chocolate because it tasted the way the chocolate smelled. Possibly that waxy wrapper gave it a plastic taste? Has anyone else noticed this?

It called for 4 oz. of the unsweetened baker's chocolate and 4 oz. semi-sweet (used chocolate chips).

Could it have been because it was a few years old? I didn't notice if there's an expiration date. Should I be packaging it differently if I'm not going to use it right away? But who knows how long it's been on the grocery shelves by the time I buy it.

Or is there a better brand I should look for? I used what I think is the common brand found in most stores, Baker's.

Could be my tastebuds have changed because I never noticed this before.
