Milk chocolate is my favorite, but I can go out of control when it's around, so I buy extra dark chocolate. So I still get a chocolate fix, but can control myself better, plus I've convinced myself it's healthy food emoticon

I love all chocolate, but what I buy for myself is really really dark. Ghirardelli's 86% and Lindt Excellence 85% and 90% are my favorites right now.

I love Hershey's milk chocolate. I know that makes me unsophisticated. I have tried a lot of chocolate and I never turn down chocolate. The big deal types of chocolate just don't satisfy my desire for milk chocolate. If I eat an ounce of dark chocolate I am always looking for desert. emoticon

I love all varieties of chocolate except white chocolate because it's not chocolate. If I get dark chocolate I like it as dark as possible! I never buy choc covered almonds because I'll eat them til they are gone no matter how good I promise myself I'll be- It might take 30min or two hrs but they will be gone down the hatch!

Dark, dark, dark. I will eat milk chocolate if it's all that's available, but it never satisfies me like dark chocolate does.

I adore dark chocolate. I recently found a bar that is 74% cacao by Dagoba, called Xocolatl. Its dark chocolate with chilies. It is amazing.

It all depends on my mood. Generally, I go for dark chocolate 50%-70%, but sometimes I really just want some milk chocolate.

I love dark to very dark chocolate. I do not like milk or white chocolate. I will however tolerate milk once in while if it's a reese's cup- but it must be frozen. Sem-sweet chocolate is the "lightest" chocolate that I will consume simply bc of baked goods. But even then, I make most things with 60-90% dark and I love it!

I know dark is better for you and don't mind it at all but I do prefer the milk chocolate. It has been with us for so many years and the dark just really coming to the foreground. Tastes do change and I am working hard on it. Just can't live without my chocolate!! emoticon

Most definitely dark!
Not just because it maybe a wee bit better for you...
And although I agree that milk chocolate has a bit more variety, nothing at all beats DARK PEPPERMINT CHOC, or my childhood fav' After Dinner Mints. Mmmmm, mmmm.

I prefer the dark chocolate; according to a medical study the dark chocolate is healthier for you and it can help with blood pressure issues as well; but even though I have not had any chocolate in a few weeks not even dark, and I have lost 4 lbs. doing it I just lost another 2 this week; I lost 2 last week so I am trying to be really good. emoticon

I am aquiring a taste for dark but can't seem to find any thing more than 70%. I will eat any kind as well.

Dark, darker, darkest! It just has such a pure, beautiful flavor -- it really doesn't need to be diluted with milk.

I prefer "dark" chocolate -- but then again, I am NOT known as one who turns down any kind of chocolate. Heck, I even enjoy "white" chocolate, which I realize is not actually chocolate.

I'm not sure I can really come up with any specific reason for my preference. But what I can say is that I have always liked dark chocolate, even prior to being informed of all the health-related benefits now associated with it.

I love all quality chocolate! But I LOVE dark the most! Which do you prefer and why? ;-)
"All of the evil that people have thrust upon chocolate is really more deserved by milk chocolate, which is essentially contaminated.
