Chocolate lovers

So, I love chocolate- Extra dark, cacao, cacao powder, chocolate flavored plant proteins and more.
I have found so many healthier, whilefood ways of having chocolate plus a piece of dark low sugar, 70% is very beneficial.
What is your 2 very favorite food that is chocolate or chocolate flavor?

    I’ve tried a lot of different brands of dark chocolate individually wrapped candy. Probably most of the readily available brands. I always go back to Dove Promises, dark chocolate caramel with sea salt. I like dark chocolate truffles too and good brownies. I’m not much of a cake fan. I do prefer dark chocolate over milk chocolate.

    I like using cacao nibs in my morning yoghurt. The nibs by themselves are super bitter, but a nice addition to sweet(ened) foods.

    I do like chocolate, but I'm a posh chocolate lover. Proper milk chocolate has at least 42% cocoa for me, and some of my favourites have around 45-52%. You won't see me eat Cadburys, which basically is just sugar and fat with a tiny bit of cocoa. Good dark chocolate is more difficult to find. Great tastes, but often with a not very indulgent texture. so basically the chocolate i buy tends to be rather expensive, and I automatically only eat a bit of it to make it last longer. And then it's also preferably single origin, fair trade cacao.

    I really like Fibre One Brownie bars, they're very chocolatey so hit the spot, if I have "proper" chocolate then Hotel Chocolat tiddly pots are my preferred choice.

    My most recent addiction is Tru Fru frozen raspberries covered first in white chocolate and then in dark. They also make a blueberry version but I prefer the tangy raspberry flavor to contrast the sweetness of the chocolate.

    I really like dark chocolate (one favorite is the Chocolove Xtreme 88%, which is widely available around here), and I used to like to try the various interesting, high-quality chocolates one could find in Hannah's Bretzel, a lunchplace that also sold chocolate from smaller producers and around the world. I'm pretty good at being able to savor that kind of chocolate and eat it slowly, but I still don't get it that often, as I tend to spend my cals on savory stuff more often.

    I have unsweetened cocoa from Godiva, which I occasionally add to the right smoothie, and also used it to make Mexican hot chocolate (controlling added sugar to my own taste, since I'm not into really sweet) for a Zoom Day of the Dead event we did. (I don't use protein powder much, and don't really like any of the flavored ones at all.)

    Probably my favorite is those unsweetened brewing cocoa, which can be a nice alternative to tea for evening sipping (or coffee, but I try not to see coffee as an evening alternative).

    Beyond that, I do like ice cream/frozen yogurt/gelato, and occasionally have some, but chocolate is not my normal preferred flavor, although I do have it occasionally.

    I always have a dish of Dove Promises dark chocolate in my living room. I can eat two (80ish calories) slowly and be completely satisfied. Especially good with a cup of tea.

    I have very simple tastes, and know what I like. Dove is it for me. Not very sophisticated, I know, but I guess it saves a little money🤷🏻‍♀️
    Two for me too. I can make those babies last for four bites.

    One thing I totally love, but buy even less than posh chocolate: Lakrids by Bulow, fairly good quality liquorice covered in various yummy chocolates.

    I thought I was the only one who could eat this! I haven't seen it in so long. I would drink it with tea so it would get a little melty in my mouth after taking a bite then a sip.

    Most of my smoothies have cocoa powder in them.

    I also like chocolate hummus, but only the one from Trader Joe's that isn't super sweet.

    However, I'll eat almost any chocolate candy and desserts!

    I used to work in a higher end shopping Pavillion directly across from a Lindt and that was the ONLY chocolate for me!!

    One of my very favorite ways to have chocolate is a real chocolaty, hot cocoa thats on the thick side- creamy texture. This alone is wonderful and can be made in a healthy way too..
    I do Love it of course with whipped coconut cream and chocolate fudge melted on top. Plus add a piece of chocolate at bottom 😋 I really haven't had that in years.
    I make a drink with chocolate plant protein, almond milk and tablespoon of cacao powder. Love it and filling.
    Oatmeal with peanut butter or cashew butter and chocolate nibs, chips is like dessert!

    Travel restrictions are keeping me from my favorite chocolate shops ... those little one of artisans in Belgian and Swiss towns.

    Chocolate hummus is a thing? I've never seen it where I live (NZ). How does a sweet hummus work? I'm intrigued because sweet treat but chickpea protein...
