Chocolate or chocolate dessert?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hello Everyone,
I was pondering a question today and wanted to get a concensus. What category are you all in out of these two? Do you like "Eating Chocolates" or do you like "Chocolate desserts" and things made with chocolate?

I would love to hear some answers to this...I know a lot of people that buy by the bar and buy single origins but I also know people who don't do that at all and only use chocolate in their recipes and really like their chocolate that way....

Help me out!

Have a great day,
Robert

chocolate or chocolate dessert

I love both. I just tasted a bar of Green & Black's organic chocolate, and it was excellent.
In my refrigerator there is a leftover of a flourless chocolate cake drenched in chocolate sauce.

I like dark chocolate. I enjoy both the dark chocolate candy bars as well as a good dessert with a strong chocolate flavor. It's a toss up between the two but I think I probably favor the chocolate dessert. I also like chocolate flavored coffee. Ghiradelli makes a great double chocolate coffee.

I like eating chocolate. Chocolate is like a food group in my house. :D

I prefer eating chocolate by the bar, and I am very unparticular about it. Anything from Hershey's on up.

Not to say I would ever turn down a chocolate dessert....

I like chocolate in all forms, preferably dark chocolate. Truffles, bars, cakes, chocolate nibs ... much prefer to stick with organic and fair trade products.

Thanks - but I'll stick to the European stuff, especially Will Curley's. :)He's an amazing patissier/chocolatier. His wife used to be in charge of cakes for the wonderful afternoon teas as the Savoy hotel in London.
