I been increasingly eating dark chocolate as an "anti-oxidant" treat and so I keep wondering how much cocoa can people take from the dark chocolate variety


Gone 92% before, even as recent the other Saturday (not this one, the one from almost 2 weeks ago)

I have a friend who makes chocolate but doesn't like sugar. Her private batch is around 99% pure. I've tried it but didn't like it, tastes too much like raw cacao seeds.

I like milk chocolate .

I have had the 90% & I like it, but I am also not into overly sweet things anymore.

We tend to buy 85%, but it varies. Depends on whether we're eating it straight or using it to bake.

A friend who is very much into healthy eating told me that he eats ONE square a day. He just said dark chocolate, nothing about the strength. (I tried it--was not successful eating ONE square though.)

I eat 85%. 90% is just a bit too much for me to enjoy. I ate pure cacao in Switzerland that was good, but I think that's a pretty rare experience.

I normally get Trader Joe's extra dark chocolate wedges in the round tin, and that is 73%. I should probably try something higher.

I like 90% because I can have a square or 2 and stop. It's good to make hot chocolate with, too. Below 70% I'll eat it all in one sitting.

I find 80% to be about perfect.
