No, it's not vanilla. It's cocoa butter, sugar, and milk. Technically, it's chocolate. Aesthetically, it isn't. But it's not vanilla, nor is it flavored with vanilla (unless you buy something labelled as "vanilla-flavored white chocolate" which I've never heard of but I suppose could exist somewhere).

Also, I like milk chocolate or bittersweet. I used to like white but ultimately it was just too sweet and coated my throat and made me cough too much.

I wouldn't turn down either, but my preference is milk, dark, then white. White chocolate is phenomenally good in some things tho, like certain cookies.

I nibble on semi-sweet baking chocolate squares. Wonderful, but still a little sweeter than I'd like them.

What's just right is a bowl of vanilla ice cream with a spoon of unsweetened cocoa power on top.

I prefer 'real' chocolate with cocoa solids - milk, semi-sweet, bittersweet - all good So no, white chocolate doesn't taste better at all to me - it tastes worse.

It used to be you couldn't even label white chocolate as chocolate in the US - it's the cocoa solids not the cocoa butter that makes it chocolate. That's when you'd find white chocolate that wasn't even made with cocoa butter at all - just oils from other sources. Some still has other oils in it - same with 'real' chocolate.

Major labels like Ghirardelli and Baker's flavor many of their chocolates with real or artificial vanilla - not just white chocolate, but semi-sweet, milk, dark, etc.

I do not like those new extra dark chocoloate squares by Ghiradelli, and I like dark chocolate...but those 70% squares do not taste good to me.
