    The darker the better (the asymptote being somewhere around 88%).

    Fondue. But a warning: if you're tempted to try this with children, either they must be quite old or they must be exceptionally well behaved or you will get brown walls.

    So I voted for dark as well, but there's a chocolate we import from the UK called Mayan Gold which is dark chocolate, orange oil, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla.
    If you get the chance make a cup of coffee, sit back and relax...

      Nutella eaten with a spoon

      You should try it with a knife :) put in fridge until it solidifies, then carve blocks out with knife, and wait until they melt

        I don't think it would make it to the fridge. That time span is too long to escape my urge to eat it as-is.


        Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

    I voted for Dark (the most popular choice by a wide margin, it seems), but there’s something to be said for adding Milk and White to achieve a balanced diet. :-)

    As to Nutty — I tend to agree with the common sentiment that “Nuts just take up space where chocolate ought to be.”

    But I’m fond of liqueur chocolates too.1 And here’s one that hasn’t been canvassed yet: Dark chocolate with Chili, a satisfying combination that tastes surprisingly “right.”

    1Update: and Rum and Raisin deserves an honourable mention.

    Dark (75% cocoa) with any kind of dried berries or orange zest.

    ... and a special brownie that my mom makes!!! With fresh berries, of course.

    The best I've ever had was very dark chocolate flavored with a hint of cayenne. Wow.

      Yes, I too am partial to the Mexican chocolates with a fair amount of heat (via chiles or peppers).

    Here in Spain, chocolate can refer to hashish. And "chocolate del moro" (moor's chocolate) designates licorice.

      Oh those crazy Spanish!... :)
      And here at perlmonks hashish is hash-ish... or hash like... We love hashes, right? %_%
      Best thing added to perl 5. I use it every day.... cough cough...



      ... what was I talking about? Oh, right, chocolate!
      I like orangettes. An in sugarwater boiled orange peal slices, dumped in pure chocolate.

      there is nothing else like it...

      Is that in a good way or a bad way? :)

        In a great way! ;-)

    Honestly, my favorite is really low quality chocolate. I can appreciate the nicer stuff, but I still love a Hershey's bar :)

    Espresso Dark Chocolate with 85% or more cocoa. When you are tired dark chocolate is a beacon of light...

    (In Homer Simpson voice) Hmmm, chocolate...

    "For me, programming in Perl is like my cooking. The result may not always taste nice, but it's quick, painless and it get's food on the table."

      Homer, in a reverie: “Mmm ... The Land of Chocolate.” Then he

      • eats chocolate rain
      • heads into Fudge Town
      • eats part of a chocolate lamp post
      • takes a bite out of a chocolate dog
      • eats part of a chocolate letterbox
      • looks in the window of Ye Olde Chocolate Shoppe, and exclaims:

      “Wow! Chocolate — half price!”

      :-)

      Athanasius <°(((><contra mundum Iustus alius egestas vitae, eros Piratica,

        Something like that, yes :-)

        Fun fact: I upvoted your post and got "You gained 1 experience point, but I eated it.". Bingo!

    The kind that is available when I want it... not that often...but intense when the desire is in evidence...

    ...the majority is always wrong, and always the last to know about it...

    A solution is nothing more than a clearly stated problem...

    Chocolate ice cream or chocolate on or in vanilla ice cream.

    No matter how hysterical I get, my problems are not time sensitive. So, relax, have a cookie, and a very nice day!

    Dark chocolate on peanut butter ice cream!

      That sounds delicious. So, why does "peanut butter on dark chocolate ice cream" sounds so terrible?
