Milk chocolate, although not a huge chocoholic.

I don't eat much chocolate but if I do, it's dark, then white then milk as last resort. I eat them in cookies or brownies.

Haha, that is word-for-word the answer that popped in my head when I saw the thread title.

I'm not one of those people who would do crazy things for chocolate, but I enjoy it from time to time. Dark, especially the high cocoa and/or unique combinations (chili pepper, orange, coconut, espresso beans, etc.), mmm mm!

Dark chocolate is high in oxalates, which is bad for people prone to kidney stones.

Dark chocolate. I love the intense, rich taste, and that it's the healthiest.

Milk chocolate preferably made in Switzerland.

I'm trying to wean myself away from milk chocolate.

I really dislike white chocolate - seems so waxy. Maybe I've only had the cheap kind, but at any rate I see no point in trying to like something fattening. So no white chocolate for me.

Most dark chocolate seems so dry. Is that because it is lower fat?

My sister sent me a large "organic" dark chocolate bar from a fancy chocolatier - I took a few bites then threw the whole thing away. I've never thrown away chocolate before in my life!

I don't care what the choco geeks and puritans say. I love milk and white chocolate. I hate dark chocolate. If I want something that bitter I'll chew a bunch of coffee beans. Mmm k.

I don't have much of a sweet tooth at all, and rarely eat chocolate. On the rare occasion that I do, I enjoy it more if it's dark.

Me, neither. I bet that's why all of us like dark chocolate. In an "everything's relative" world, it's sweet enough.
