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 would quit chocolate but I'm not a quitter.

Milk chocolate is my favorite but I sometimes indulge in dark when milk is not available.

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!

I am new to dark but love it

It doesn't matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.

Exercise : you don't have time not to.

Be wise in the use of time. The question in life is not how much time do we have. The question is what shall we do with it.

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

Dark, always! I like the kind between 70-80% cocoa best. Unfortunately I have a bad habit of settling for less when it's right in front of me...

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.

Feisty, you and I are going to get along just fine. The darker and more toe-curling the chocolate, the better I like it.

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.

STOP IT! I want some now.... emoticon

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. The closer you get to a pure chocolate liquor (the chocolate essence ground from roasted cacao beans) the purer it is, the more satisfying it is, the safer it is, and the healthier it is." (Arnold Ismach, "The Darker Side of Chocolate")
