Dark...and I liked it more even before the news broke about its health benefits.

I prefer (rice) milk chocolate but eat dark for the nutritional benefits. I see it like white rice vs. brown rice. The processed stuff may taste better but offers me little to nothing in the way of nutrients.

Even as a kid, I preferred Hershey Special Dark.

As far as the straight sugary "bad for you" aspect, I love milk chocolate, but has to be plain.

These days, milk chocolate makes me feel sick because I have gotten away from sugar so much. I'll grab a speciality dark chocolate bar and eat it one square at a time.

I used to prefer milk chocolate, but started eating a little dark chocolate regularly last year when I started eating really healthily. Then I progressed to 60-80% cocoa dark chocolates and you do get used to it. It is still chocolate! And when I use cocoa powder I use 100% cocoa... soo good for you!

The only dark chocolate I like is Ghiradelli sea salt and almond. Other than that I prefer milk :)

Always dark chocolate. I like milk sometimes, but it's too sweet for me; I like the dark chocolate smoothness, without the super-sugary sweet of milk.

The darker, the better for me. Milk chocolate burns the back of my throat and has an unpleasant aftertaste.

I do like baking with milk chocolate as it's so much easier to chop, but I mostly use dark as it's my preference.

I have a square of dark chocolate (85% cocoa) a few times a week. It's not particularly sweet but somehow so satisfying. I won't eat milk chocolate because it's actually too sweet to me and not that healthy for me.

Once in a while, I make a healthier hot cocoa for my young daughter that she loves. I also make a chocolate-avocado shake that is so delicious to me. Less sugar and more healthy ingredients in both recipes.

I prefer semi-sweet, but since that wasn't one of the choices, I'd say out of those two, dark chocolate.

Dark chocolate is so much more intense! I think it is an acquired taste. As you eat healthier, your body doesn't crave the added sugar as much.

I've always preferred dark chocolate, though I do like a high-quality milk chocolate, too.

I know a bit of dark chocolate every day is good for you, but to me only the creamy, sugary goodness of milk chocolate satisfies.

Your preference?

Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.
