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.
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 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.
