I am curious what kind of chocolate people like on this forum.

Me: Dark all the way. Specifically the ones with 70% - 85% cocoa content.

Milk Chocolate. Though I like them all, flavor-wise. But I'm not a big chocoholic. Small doses only.

I only like milk chocolate,also knowing dark chocolate with more cocoa in it is more beneficiary. Overall I am lucky I cannot tolerate too much of it anyway.

British milky (yes, I meant to say milky - as in smooth) chocolate - like Cadbury's or the Quality Street "Green Triangle."

Milk chocolate all the way. I put milk chocolate in every recipe that calls for semi sweet, it tastes so much better. I don't care for dark chocolate at all. It has a bitter taste, to me. I love white chocolate also, even though it's not really chocolate. I'll still eat it.

Yes, white chocolate is basically solid fat which has been extracted from the raw cocoa in the chocolate making process. The other part, the dark chocolate, is the healthy part, the part that so many health gurus now are proclaiming to be a super food.

Back when xocolatl was reserved for the use of the emperors and high priests its energizing and health giving properties were already appreciated. And they prepared it as a bitter drink with red chiles, which might sound weird but is actually surprisingly good once you get past the fact that it isn't sweet.

And when sweetened up a bit, to better fit American tastes, the combination of dark chocolate and chili spice makes for one of my favorite combination in chocolate candies...
