Milk chocolate has always been and will always be one of my favorites. White is good too, but it gets overpowering very quickly. Dark I just hate.

I like milk and white. Dark is all right too, but I don't like it as much.

I go back and forth between dark and milk. Kind of depends what else is in it. There is a company called chocolove that makes a milk chocolate with toffee that has been one of my favorites for a while now.
But I think the best I've had was turmeric and ginger in dark chocolate, made by vosges. Someone gave it to me last Valentine's day. I think it's an $8 candy bar, so I'll probably never have another, but it was heavenly.

Depending on my mood, I might pick any of them, but I'm most likely to pick milk, then white, and least likely to choose dark.

Dark.
The higher the percentage of cocoa the better.

i never liked chocolate.
i can tolerate small amounts of dark chocolate as long as it is wafer thin and has some other zesty ingredient like intense orange flakes.

the worst type of chocolate to me is white chocolate.
it is quite sickly. too "lactosey". i love to suck on tubes of sweetened condensed milk which may seem similar, but white chocolate has a stinky babies milky head taste about it.
milk chocolate is diluted with milk and sweetened with extra sugar and i do not like it.

i have given some thought to chocolate however.
i think early south american civilizations like the aztecs or even earlier the maya discovered chocolate.

the cocoa bean is outrageously unpalatable and whoever discovered it by accident while maybe trying out foods in the forest, must have spat it out, but afterward felt a sense of calmness and stability of alertness.

he may have wondered about that effect, and then collected some of the beans to take them back to the tribe to ask them to try them and, even though they have a ferociously bitter taste, report whether they feel any positive physiological or psychological effects.

maybe many reported the effects i outlined above, so they incorporated it as a medicine.

to increase the palatability, someone invariably would have added some type of sugar (probably corn syrup) to assist in the consumption (a spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down).

so an astonishing discovery was made that the addition of sugar not only made it less bitter, but perfectly augmented it's underlying taste, and it became an appetising taste, rather than just a tolerable one.

this would be how the modern idea of chocolate was discovered i believe.

but i still don't like it anyway.

I love dark chocolate. And mocha (chocolate in coffee).

I don't consider myself a choco-holic, but I do enjoy getting my chocolate jam on occasionally (lol). And my preference is the dark variety. Not to mention, it also has health benefits. Many studies have shown it supports blood flow to the heart and may help destroy free radicals..courtesy of its substance called flavonoids, which are more abundant in dark chocolate. I like Dove, but Hershey's Special Dark is a close second.

Definitely prefer milk chocolate

white can be alright

I used to hate dark chocolate, didn't find it tasty at all, but over the last decade there have been some dark chocolates I have liked, and sometimes I crave them

I think the first time I took to dark chocolate is when I ate a dark chocolate covered marshmallow christmas tree candy.

Dark chocolate for cooking, or pairing with a J. Lohr cabernet sauvignon.

Milk chocolate for desserts.

White chocolate ... isn't.

Every once in a while I enjoy a white chocolate Kit Kat or Reeses. But I like the dark version best.
