Dark all the way for me also. I lean towards the 85% to 90%.

I'm a chocoholic (admittedly ). I've cut back on my consumption to smaller doses tho sometimes I can't help myself.

1) dark choc (most likely when it involves candy bars/raisinets/York Peppermint Patty, etc
2) milk choc (mostly ice cream, hot choc)


Not a fan of wh choc (anything)

You bring up an interesting item for me. After years (since childhood) of using Hershey's syrup I went ahead and tried the dark chocolate version at my friend's house. I thought it was inferior to the Original Hershey's Chocolate Syrup and wondered how Hershey's could mess that up. Now I know to stick with the true version.

If I read your post correctly you use the original Hershey's and lots of it. Me too!

My dad always had a can of the stuff in the frig. I like the plastic bottle they came up with.

Original like in the can...got to try the dark kind.

The stuff in the plastic bottle is the same - just easier to use and costs more because of the container.

I grew up on Quick in the 60s. We only had Hershey's around for special occasions.

Dark chocolate for hubby and I. White chocolate is yucky to me. I will eat milk chocolate if I had to.

Really rich milk chocolate is my favorite. Mild dark chocolate and white chocolate are okay.

I don't like bitter dark chocolate.

I love dark chocolate in small quantites and will eat a small square a day during the week (they have a dark (70%) batch at work and I like to eat one square after lunch). Other than that, I don't eat chocolate unless it's given to me or acquired somehow. As others have mentioned I do also love the dark chocolate with sea salt - a boss gave me a box once as a gift, it was delicious!

Don't really care for milk chocolate as it's too sweet to me but I will bake cookies with milk chocolate chips for my family. I also never eat white chocolate except for when I bake white chocolate/macadamia cookies, another family favorite.

I do love the occasional box of See's candies, but always go for the dark chocolate pieces.

Oh man, now I won't be able to get See's out of my head. Well, that's one of the great things about the internet - I can order some. So, so good!
