let's talk about dark chocolate and why it's so much better than milk chocolate
>>
you're right, but it's like saying aids is better than cancer
>>
I like both.
>>
>>7160235
That stuff is not good at all.
>>
90% is too dark. Darkest i'll go is 70 and even then I don't really care for it.
>>
I love dark chocolate, but around 70% is the ideal percentage to me.


Don't get milk chocolate at all, it's so bland
if you just want butter/sugar, just eat white chocolate
if you want chocolate, eat dark chocolate

not this inbetween milk crap
>>
>>7160235
Borderline meme food. As the percentage of pure cacao goes up, so does its pretentiousness. Consumed by try hard morons attempting to prove how unique they are by pretending to enjoy overwhelming bitterness. The same is the case for ludicrously spicy hot sauces.
>>
>>7160235
Chocolate is kind of like cheese. Dark chocolate, like aged cheese, has a sophisticated, exquisite flavor. But that doesn't mean that milk chocolate and young cheese are bad, and in fact they are very good in their own right.
>>
>>7160256
>>7160260
I find you have to really eat it slow and let it dissolve to get the full experience. The flavors change so fast, it's beautiful
>>
>>7160269
What if you eat it but don't give a shit when people say their favorite "chocolate" is Hershey's? Is that still pretentious?
>>
>>7160285
Sorry sir but I am no meme food expert but I am sure there are others on this webzone who are, that's why I said "borderline". A lot of it depends on how high of a percentage you can honestly still manage to completely enjoy. Perhaps with a bit of introspection you'll be able to look deep inside and answer this question for yourself.
>>
This will sound like a meme but I'm serious. Eating 90%+ is in a field of it's own. Without all the sugar and shit, it really lets your taste buds explore the other flavors. The sugar masks everything and it just makes it taste like generic chocolate
>>
>>7160235

Whole Foods always used to have the chocolate in my pic at 2/1 and it is my favorite. I'm no connoisseur of dark chocolate but from what I've had this is the only one that I've had that really stood out as great.

you are like the most basic of basic eaters you picky fuck, there are cheap cheeses that are more bitter than dark chocolate. nevermind the quality ones.
>>
>>7160503
90% dark chocolate is extremely potent to the point where I would doubt any one that says they like it.

>overwealming
>>
>>7160307
100%, as long as I haven't been eating anything else recently. Conflicting flavours will make it taste like dirt.
>>
>>7160349

I'm not gay

I just bought that chocolate today. It's currently my favourite. I get the guys in this thread saying that it's impossible to like 90% but it's really not. I started eating 70% some years ago and back then I would have thought the same.. it's just a matter of getting used to the flavour. I still like 70% but prefer 90%. The flavour is deeper aand like the way it melts in my mouth.
>>
>>7162387
around 60-70% is where I prefer my dark chocolate, but I've tried 90% and liked it. It's really bitter, which was a surprise at first.
>>
I really like this.

I like cacao nibs and milk chocolate, dark chocolate is fedora tier shit.

I like 90% but i find 70% is more enjoyable. Anything after 70% seems to have a degree of harshness and bite to it but 70% is just smooth enough to not have an edge and still be extremely rich.

Am I the only one here who actually loves 90% dark chocolate?

It's weird because I hate other bitter foods like black coffee, tonic water, and bittermelon, but I love very dark chocolate.

Pic related is a very good chocolate company. It's a Lithuanian company that's very cheap (I've gotten a bar for as low as 79 cents), but the quality is very good, and there's a lot of variety.

The quality is shit and they're sweet as fuck. They use shit like fructose and other shit sugars to sweeten the chocolate up. Bottom tier Maxima crap.

It just tastes bitter. Bitter like puke. Milk chocolate actually tastes sweet and delicious. Dark chocolate is when it comes to taste is the worst chocolate even below white chocolate.

>>7160269
It won't taste so bitter if your palette wasn't so uncultured.
>>
Dark Chocolate gives me the runs. No thanks.
>>
When I lost weight through keto I used dark chocolate when I fancied something sweet. You only need a couple of squares of OP's pic. I have 70% though.

I can't really eat milk chocolate anymore now, it's like bland weird mixed flavour. You may as well have white.
But I don't take milk with my coffee either as it ruins the taste.

85% is my personal favorite though. 70% and below is just too sweet for me.

>>
>>7160269
I've got the perfect chocolate for you.
>>
>>7160235
I prefer more in the 60% range, just the right mix of bitter and sweet.
Although milk chocolate is definitely inferior, it really does just taste like creamy sugar.
>>
>>7169439
Thats only 47% though.
>>
>>7160256
>>7165620
>It just tastes bitter
This. I love dark chocolate, really. But I hate Lindt. It's not a good brand for enjoying dark chocolate. Anything above maybe 50% from them tastes gross and bitter to me. Whereas there are other brands I can easily go up to 70-80%. I don't really know enough about chocolate to know why some brands of chocolate, at equal percents, taste of nothing but bitterness while others taste pleasant, but whatever Lindt's doing, they're doing it wrong.

>>7169163
This is really smooth and not so bitter like the 85% lindt but like you said its overpriced.

I like milk chocolate better than dark most of the time but that doesn't mean either is bad.
[spoiler]I mostly eat dark chocolate because it has less sugar in it and is better for those who are diabetic/pre-diabetic[/spoiler]
>>
>>7169546
Agreed. This shit is bitter like coffee. If you don;t like something, you don't have to eat it.
>>
>>7169122
Yeah, but atleast it's a fancy turd
>>
I honest to god think people just pretend to like dark chocolate and black coffee. I mean I know they have great nutritional benefits but stop acting like they taste amazing. Its almost as bad as the spicy people.
>>
http://gawker.com/dark-chocolate-is-not-good-for-you-and-also-sucks-1697544277
>>
>>7169809
Not really. Eventually you notice how much sugar is crammed into 'chocolate', and then that becomes all you really notice. Some things you want to experience without being drowned in sweetness. It's like an above anon said, the notes of taste are much more complex in darker chocolate. It's not so much an instant 'fuck this is good', but it's a more unique taste experience than a bar of milk and sugar.

I fully admit to being somewhat hypocritical, as I can't really enjoy chocolate much past 65%-ish, and I can't enjoy coffee without milk and sugar, but there are people who do genuinely enjoy them, and have reasons beyond being hipsters.
>>
>>7169821
Did he literally just claim that the scientific health benefits to cacao are made up? I mean its one thing to criticize people who pretend to like it but this is next level bullshit.
>>
>>7169821
>gawker
Journalism at its finest. Also, the piece is more about how people view dark chocolate as some kind of super miracle food based on 'unsubstantiated health claims' (and the research they're using to back up the assertion is pretty patchy, a single forbes article covering a study with a small sample size that admits more study is needed, and a bbc article that says 'there MAY not be much antioxidants, and keep a watch on the sugar and fat', of which there is very little of in 90%). I haven't seen a single person in this thread going on about how great it is for you, but rather how the taste is more interesting/engaging/complex than milk chocolate, which is perfectly valid.

Some better quality dark chocolate:
Scharffen Berger
Green & Blacks
Endangered Species
Dagoba

I guess it could have been worse, you could have posted a picture of Hershey's dark chocolate.

Why are you guys so mad when people say they like dark chocolate?

I love dark chocolate and so does my family (except for my mom) and my friends. It's such a common thing to love it.

The fact that you guys act like only hipsters say they like dark chocolate shows how unsocial you guys are.
>>
But it isn't.
>>
>>7171033
This is exactly the sort of stupid attitude my post perfectly explains
>>
>>7169122
Drown it in sugar, and people will say it's delicious while laughing at the hipsters who claim to like undigested foods.
>>
anyone tried these?
they're regular choco but sweetened with stevia extract and erythritol instead of sugars.
opinions?
>>
>>7169824
This.

I made cupcakes and yeast rolls on separate occasions for myself and anyone who wanted some. Everyone complained they weren't sweet enough or couldn't taste any sugar. I just cook for myself now
>>
>dark choco + salt
>>
Well for one dark chocolate doesn't give me the shits.
For two, it's delicious as fuck.
>>
Been using this lately to try out a hot chocolate recipe. First time I tried it I used semi-sweet, it's considerably better darker. Might try adding in just a little bit of coffee next time I make it, see how that tastes.
>>
Anything where sugar is the ingredient that gives it taste is low quality cheap crap. That's why shit tier chocolate like kitkats are so cheap. It's like listening to artless pop music or rap music. Only liked by the plebbiest and uncultured. Enjoy your kiddie chocolate children.

>>7171033
They're just sugar addicts. If it's not packed full with sugar their obvious drug addiction demands from them that they turn their nose at it. They need to feed their addiction at all times.

What attitude? That anon was just describing their love for dark chocolate and how it is pretty common to like it.
