It’s just bitter or overly sweet...

Not a big fan but I like the taste of it and it doesn't taste bitter or too sweet to me. I like sweet stuff in general anyway.

Although obviously everyone's taste buds and preferences are different...

I do not compute the question.

It's chocolate. It's amazing.

It goes with coffee
It goes with fruit
It goes with sex
What else do you need, really?

It gives you a magic hug.

Yes, I am fat and I eat my feelings.

YABU to ask that, yes.

Giraffes Sounds like you're a mutant outlier. Baseline humans are genetically tuned to looooove chocolate. It is a perilous love, but I do like a bit of peril.

It’s nice with nuts in it. I can’t eat loads of it though.

You should try the fruit!!!

bloodywhitecat Thu 21-Mar-19 03:00:04

I don't.

(I know that makes me weird but I don't like chocolate)

Cos it tastes like a fucking orgasm.

I honestly don't know other than it tastes good and the twirl I'm eating now will keep me going with a sugar rush until 8.30am when I finish work.
I do know I eat far too much.
Heard once that something in it releases the same chemical in the brain as is released after sex. Being single for a year this may have a bearing on my penchant for chocolate. Not sure it's scientific at all

It hits that sweet craving instantly in the nicest possible way

Fat & sugar. What's not to like!

Are you a alien, ready to do a study on human habits? If so, then i volunteer to be a test subject! Preferences are Godiva, Maison du Chocolat or wispa. I will start by telling you, us humans like to eat our emotions!!!

Because Double Deckers are the best thing anyone can put in their mouths ever.

I don't particularly like it - it's too sweet.

Occasionally - perhaps once a month or so, I'll crave and eat some.

BillywigSting Thu 21-Mar-19 06:36:40

I'm really fussy with which chocolate I like, but really good chocolate is (quite literally, if you're aztec) the food of the gods.

Only a bit of it though. It does tend to be a bit rich.

Coffee is better though.

It's sweet but not too sweet (good quality stuff that is), it has a melt point at the temp of the human body which is when the flavour spreads in your mouth.
But it has something which can aggravate acid reflux so be warned if you eat it in the evening.

Mummadeeze Thu 21-Mar-19 06:45:07

I am not sure that I do that much actually. But I sometimes eat it because it is meant to be a treat. The less I eat it, the more disappointing it is when I try it again. I think it is a psychological mindset to some extent and media hype!

Mmmhmmokdear Thu 21-Mar-19 06:52:45

I have a really sweet tooth and i like the taste & mouth feel (of decent chocolate!)

MeteorGarden92 Thu 21-Mar-19 06:54:41

Because I’m addicted to sugar, and it’s AMAZING

hammeringinmyhead Thu 21-Mar-19 07:05:59

I'm not a fan really. I love the odd bit of more expensive stuff from Hotel Chocolat, but I would never buy a random bar of Cadbury's or Galaxy. Crisps and cheese every time!

countrygirl99 Thu 21-Mar-19 07:16:12

Good quality chocolate is lovely. Poor quality chocolate is oily and over sweet.

Raspberry88 Thu 21-Mar-19 07:17:29

Hmmm...I'm not sure. I always think I want chocolate but actually find it quite disappointing when I actually eat it. Chips on the other hand...
