Valentine's Day Poll About Chocolate Preference

Which Kind of Chocolate Do You Prefer?

In my house Valentine's Day is all about chocolate. If you're trying to eat healthy you may only stick to eating an ounce or so of dark chocolate a day for the benefits. Others don't like the taste of dark chocolate and only eat milk chocolate, even if it's known to be less healthy. Since it's Valentine's Day, and we've all got chocolate on the mind, which do you prefer . . .

Since I was little, my favorite chocolate was those squares of Hershey's special dark. I always liked it better than milk chocolate, and much better than white chocolate. And no, I'm not lying; I really do prefer it dark.

I could not survive college without chocolate. My weeks just get too stessful! The problem is not over-indulging. That's why I don't keep it on hand. But I'm considering buying a bag of Dove milk chocolates (my current favorite) and eating one every day. Maybe that would help me stave off my all-too-frequent (and, unfortunately, diet-ruining) chocolate cravings.

Dark chocolate is just sweet enough... but has a bite to it.

DARK CHOCOLATE! Sorry I get a little excited about it....I've never really liked any other kind, though when I was younger I liked milk chocolate in candy bars.

A well made piece of dark chocolate is HEAVEN. Dove makes really nice bite size dark chocolates that have the great taste that dc is known for but a really nice creaminess at the same time. Plus I love the fact that a small piece of dark chocolate is so much more satisfying that any amount of milk chocolate

Yeah, I'm totally lying about the fact that I prefer dark chocolate. Because I stand so much to gain. @@I buy a bar of Green and Black's 70% Dark about once a week, and eat a few pieces a day. I might have other chocolate too. It's not like I'm going to turn down most milk chocolate, although there is some that is so bad I'm not going to waste my calories on it. If you put a plain old Hershey's bar in front of me, it'll probably sit there awhile. I've always preferred dark. To be honest, it might have started out when I was really little as rebellion against my mom, who told me it was gross. (She still won't touch it.) I was like that, and my mom and I still have very different eating habits. Also, Hershey's "Special Dark" bars cost more, and were harder to find, and had gold on the wrapper, so I thought they were something exotic and really special, so I always wanted them. Whatever the cause, I love me some dark chocolate. But it has to be good. Some is just gross.Oh, and white chocolate sucks!

I treat chocolate as chocolate smooth rich dark chocolate is delicious, but over time i've definitely chosen milk chocolate a lot often.

I hate white chocolate too. Ick. Something about the texture squigs me out.I have always been a chocolate lover. I never understood how people could look at a dessert cart with a chocolate choice and choose something like berry pie instead when there's CHOCOLATE sitting right there! (Not to mention people whose favorite candy is Skittles or Starburst.)A few years ago I was sitting in a waiting room and got to chatting with a totally elegant, very put-together older woman. She was very stylish and chic and she told me a few of her secrets, including eating a small square of baker's chocolate once a day to satisfy a sweet tooth. (She also was the first person who'd ever mentioned Lotte Berk method of exercise to me - this gal did it when she lived in New York.) Now there are great chocolates that are meant to be tasted and savored like fine wines. They even use wine terms like oaky fruity etc. LOL! But nice that chocolate is getting lots of attention. My favorite dark chocolates are Scharffen-Berger and Valrhona. I stock up on Valrhona at Trader Joe's. It's still pricy but not quite as bad as buying it somewhere else. Valrhona just started selling an 85% cacao version -- DARK!
