Need your help; chocolate lovers

Ok, help me out here guys. Wondering what is the most eaten type of chocolate in the US? Dark, milk, white, flavoured?

Trying to see if we can pull off a special chocolate thank you, but obviously cant ado upfront without giving some of the surprise away.

I do not have any official number to go off of, but my guess would be milk. I, personally, love dark chocolate, but often am told by others that they do not share the love. It seems milk chocolate is most commonly used in a lot of candies sold in stores.

I'm a Hershey's milk chocolate girl. I like white chocolate & flavored stuff on holidays but I despise dark chocolate. I just don't understand how anything that bitter and gross can be called chocolate.

Personally, I like dark chocolate and milk chocolate. I do not like white at all. I, too, would venture to say that you would be safest with getting milk chocolate.

I agree that you would probably be safest with milk chocolate.
I personally prefer dark chocolate, but any chocolate is good chocolate!

I do not like white chocolate myself, but it's my mother in law's favorite.

I also would say that milk chocolate is most popular.
I don't know anyone who doesn't like milk, but do know people who don't like dark and white.

Thanks all so far for replies. Seems pretty solid that milk gets the most love. Glad I asked. Sounds like dark gets quite some less love then it does here, so good thing to keep in mind!!

Let me put it this way; European chocolate. We know how to do chocolate. You guys have some great chocolate candy that I and many friends and family love (and thus get lugged back home, with other candy and groceries, a suitcase or more at a time ), but chocolate is something you were dealt a bad hand on.

I agree that American chocolate is not as good as European (but, quite tasty enough if you NEED chocolate).
We have had European foreign exchange students who each stayed with us for a school year.
Our Belgian foreign exchange daughter was our first and schooled us on European chocolate. She sends us chocolate for gifts and supplied our room with chocolate when we came to visit her in Feb. 2011.
My favorite Côte d'Or Noir de Noir. Luckily, my DH likes milk chocolate, so I only have to share with DDs!

The best hot chocolate I had in my life was in Belgium where they made hot milk and then gave an assortment of chocolate pieces to melt into it / yummy.

Ever tried Callebaut (Belgian brand) dark chocolate? You might want to start with the only 53%, but I have yet to run into anybody that does not end up loving their dark chocolate. Only brand I still use for anything I do with chocolate. Which is a lot, considering I make all of our truffles etc. etc. I used to be a milk girl all the way myself, but not since Callebaut. Only exception that still always must be milk; when I get a fix from a bakery-chocolatier. All of sorts are amazing, incl the flavoured ones but that milk...... sooo smooth and silky. Love it!



Sue; ah yes Côte d'or. Much loved brand. Not my favorite, but definately up there. That hot chocolate you experienced in Belgium is the way hot chocolate should always be imho. If you want to kind of copy but make a quick home option; offer up one of your noir-noir bars. Rasp it all up into a container with about same amount of good quality cocoa powder. Add a little salt (brings out the chocolate flavor more). If desired you can add flavours or spices but not needed. In a good sealing container it keeps good for a very long time and it makes for an amazing yet quick home hot chocolate. If you find yourself hopping down to the World the first 2 weeks of oct '13; feel free to PM and I'll gladly buy off one of our moderators with some noir-noir. Seriously, though.
