    I used to hate dark chocolate, but I have been trying to get more into it lately.

    I'm currently chomping down 95% dark lindt chocolate.

    Do you guys like dark chocolate? How dark is too dark?

    I’m not a fan of dark chocolate
    Mostly because I can’t stand anything even a tiny bit bitter

    It is certainly an acquired taste, but it is fantastic given enough time & familiarity (and even better, they are nutritionally sound). I can't stand Milk Chocolate anymore, it's so "Artificial" by comparison *and naturally high in carbs/sugar*.

    I absolutely love dark chocolate. 95% is perhaps a little bit too dark for me I've found around 80% - 75% around the sweet spot for me. I've also found that the maker makes a big different in it too for instance I can't stand Cadbury's dark chocolate ( or anything from them these days, way to sweet and sickly since Kraft bought them out ), Green and Black's how ever I would happily eat until the cows come home.

    Not to mention but current research suggests regularly may help with depression and anxiety.

    Despite making up only 13% of my pantry... They account for 100% of the Chocolate in my house.

    White chocolate barely deserves to be called chocolate

    It's in the same vein as Milk Chocolate unfortunately. I am less concerned about the color than I am about the added Sugars. As a consolation prize I do like White Chocolate more than Milk Chocolate.

    White chocolate will never be a real chocolate. It may look like chocolate. Smell like chocolate. Appropriate Chocolate. But it will never be chocolate.

    Technically ... White Chocolate ... isnt chocolate ... as it contains no cocoa solids

    Earth, bro-dude.
    ..I dislike most things, but I enjoy the benefits dark chocolate provides.
    I don't eat it very often, unless it's melted on ice cream, but even then, I eat ice cream on seldom occasions.
    BTW, vegan ice cream is a thing and it isn't so bad--good luck finding vegan ice cream made with hemp milk.

    Agreed. White chocolate is just a marketing ploy to sell cocoa butter. You could get the same effect from basically any other nut fat.

    It's sugar and fat and not a lot else - way too sweet and sickly. It's Chocolates bastard child, the rest of the family acknowledge but will never be accepted

    Dark chocolate is the only real chocolate in my opinion, 95% is the limit though, higher and your just eatting Coco powder (pretty much dirt). This depends on brand though, some really high ones still taste like milk chocolate....

    I forgot
    80% dark chocolate is my jam, anything more is just a touch too bitter for me.

    Never really liked dark chocolate, but my wife loves it so I started having some when we started dating, I much prefer it now.
