Has to be dark, no wimpy milk chocolate for me. White chocolate isn't actually chocolate.

I LOVE the lower % dark chocolate but nothing beats the smoothness of milk chocolate.

Dark is good as long as it isn't really bitter (the cheap dark chocolates are bad for this), although as darth says the creaminess of milk is hard to beat for general snacking

It's mental health food. I voted for white chocolate.

Damn, all this talk of dark chocolate is making me want to change my vote!

The reall high % chocolate (70+%) reminds me of coffee. A very strong, delicious, smooth and inviting aroma but a very bitter, face-twisting taste...

I don't like chocolate that isn't mixed with peanut butter in some way.

White chocolate is an oxymoron.

White chocolate is cocoa butter without cocoa powder. It's actually the least healthy, since it's mostly fat.

My tastebuds for sweet things are overly sensitive. I can eat baking chocolate just fine. I prefer 89% chocolate. 71 is the lowest i'll go, unless it's very special chocolate (salted almonds in 55% is a good treat, but I wish the brand would make the same with 75%)

Is that Ghirardelli? They have an 'intense dark sea salt soiree' that's pretty tasty.

When it's time for our neighbors' grand-daughter's birth-day my wife will always make up a big fruit-platter for the kids, including a bunch of of strawberries dipped in Ghirardelli chocolate, rolled in crushed nuts and frozen. Those don't last long.

You can make the berries disappear as quickly with the parents by using the melted chocolate and a final dip of sour cream, but the kids LOVE the crushed nuts, frozen. I can't blame them. I have to stay away when my wife is making them.

Yes. The chocolate is very dark. The kids love those dipped berries with crushed nuts. My wife uses chocolate chunks and melts them in the microwave, then dips the strawberries in the melted chocolate and rolls them in the nuts (chopped walnuts and pecans) before spreading those on a tray to hit the freezer. Kids who are "in the know" make those disappear in short order.

My favorite range for dark is 65-75%, but enjoy up to 85 as well as much lower.

That's not even chocolate, it's flavorless fat.

It's Jimmy Snyder. Look at his sig. Anyway, it isn't normally completely flavorless - a tiny bit of the chocolate flavor usually survives, at least with old fashioned production methods.

Cocoa butter smells so chocolatey! Take a bite and you'll spit it out.

My father's parents lived in VT and my mother's in NH. I lived in NJ. When I was a child, before the interstate highway system, it took two days to get to my grandparents' place. We would stop along the way at some cheap motel, stay the night and finish up the next day. We would stop at Hebert's candy shop along the way too. My father loved to get ribbon candy, a kind of hard candy shaped into thin wavy ribbons. One year I got a piece of white chocolate on a stick like a lollypop. That was my first taste of it and I thought it was yummy. I never saw white chocolate again until I was already an adult. I thought that only Hebert's had it. I still think it's yummy, smoother than milk chocolate, and full of warm memories too.
