I think I’ve changed camps.
*
I used to think that people who loved dark chocolate were weird.  Honestly I thought they were old. I mean...what twenty-something loves dark chocolate? I certainly didn’t know any of ‘em.
*
But over the last few years, I’ve fallen in love with dark chocolate so now I’m curious.  Was it just me?  Was I just slow to learn to love the darker side?  Or is it really an acquired taste you develop with maturity?
*
Notice I didn't say old.
*
I’ll be 27 again this year (45 if you wanna be technical about solar cycles), and I much prefer dark chocolate. Dark chocolate covered almonds, chocolate cake with a dark chocolate ganache, hot chocolate made with dark chocolate syrup. Wait. Did I just make that up? Does that even exist?
*
The milk chocolate is still good but it’s fallen into second place. I'm all about the dark. Oh...and there's always the health benefits. 👊🏽
*
I’m here, in the bed, with my foot propped up thinking about chocolate. Help me with my informal inquiry. Maybe then I'll finally be able to rest well.
*
What’s your AGE and what is your preference? MILK or DARK?
*
While your at it, tag a friend and ask them too. Inquiring minds want to know.

  • septemberunique30 and I don't really like chocolate butttt if I'm given the choice i always choose Dark.
  • soteria_wellness36 and dark all the way. Preferably sweetened only with stevia and almonds.
  • recklessly.abandoned4godI'm 26 and growing up I didn't like anything but milk chocolate. I thought most dark chocolate was better. But in my late teen years I developed a liking for the dark and now it's my absolute favorite! Lol And it's healthier too! :)

  • senoraliza55 and I have always love dark chocolate over milk chocolate . It's my all time favorite chocolate ever. Just learned to acquire a taste for the 55% or higher one with more cocoa it's has more health benefits

  • brenda_bradford_ottingerI'm a wackadoo and don't love any kind of chocolate. (I know, I need to turn in my Female Card. ☺) -- For dark chocolate, I don't mind Dove or Trader Joe's. -- I'm 45. -- (p.s. Happy Bday. ☺)
  • daughterofhim64I have always preferred dark chocolate-Dove dark chocolates are my absolute favorites...what i love about them is that 1...ok...sometimes 2...is all it takes to satisfy that chocolate craving. I will be celebrating the 24th anniversary of my 29th birthday 😉😜 here in about 9 days.
  • eboni.l.jones36 and I LOVE dark!
  • lpstockmanAlmost 52 and I love dark, but like you in my younger days preferd milk. My grandmother use to keep Hershey minis on the table and my cousins and I would pick out the crackle and milk chocolate bars and leave the dark ones. I assume she ate them.

  • stacey_c_wall45 and dark chocolate since my 20's. It takes just a small amount of dark chocolate to give you a rich, decadent, indulgent feel!
