To think white chocolate isn't actually a flavour

White chocolate cheesecake. White chocolate mousse. Do these things actually taste of anything except bland sweetness? It's not a flavour! I don't see the point of it. AIBU?

They're sort of rich, sweet vanilla. I'm not a fan, but white chocolate does have its own flavour.

Mmmmm white chocolate. YABU I love it.

Well, it is a flavour. Admittedly, a pretty disgusting and cloying one, but that's how white chocolate tastes.

Is it even chocolate? Has it ever seen any cocoa?

Crispbutty Wed 22-Feb-17 20:35:50

White chocolate doesn't qualify as genuine chocolate because it doesn't contain chocolate solids (a.k.a. cocoa powder). White chocolate is typically made from a blend of cocoa butter, milk solids, sugar, milk fat and lecithin — a fatty emulsifier that holds it all together.

ShatnersBassoon surely it only tastes of vanilla if it's got vanilla added to it? Which is obviously a big improvement because then it actually tastes of something

user1487622505 Wed 22-Feb-17 20:38:51

Fatty emulsified milk solids. Yum.

I think white chocolate is usually flavoured with vanilla/vanillin, isn't it?

user1487622505 Wed 22-Feb-17 20:46:39

Shatners yes I think it is, because it needs it! Which is my point smile

It isn't officially "chocolate" which helps me out no end when I give up chocolate for lent grin

White chocolate tastes like vomit

I loathe white chocolate, it's just so sweet, give me a good 70% dark chocolate any day.

It's fucking grim

FreeNiki Wed 22-Feb-17 21:42:22

I could eat white chocolate. I couldnt eat vomit.

Therefore it doesnt taste like vomit.

Hershey's chocolate actually does taste of vomit though. I'd still rather eat that than white chocolate.

NoBiggie Wed 22-Feb-17 22:15:28

I love white chocolate flavour anything to be honest!

CaraAspen Wed 22-Feb-17 22:16:11

It's sickly.

I like white chocolate. But then I also like the taste of creme eggs and Cadbury chocolate and by MN standards that makes me pretty much a devil worshipper. To be fair, devil worship would probably be more acceptable.

I love white chocolate. Much prefer it to milk or dark.

JenniferYellowHat1980 Wed 22-Feb-17 22:25:33

White chocolate is vile. I'm a greedy bastard and will eat most things but white chocolate can sit in the cupboard well beyond its use by date as far as I'm concerned.

HerRoyalNotness Wed 22-Feb-17 22:56:38

I love white chocolate, especially the Lindt one with the whipped middle. Lush

BitchQueen90 Wed 22-Feb-17 22:59:18
