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?

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.

Well then, see you're not a fan of white 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.

Guinea pig's aren't supposed to eat chocolate.

..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.

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

    You just go in for a month and come out with no fines or having to pay them anyway, I would be down.
