Is it normal that i dislike sweet chocolate?

I eat 95% dark chocolate, not the sweet and sugary stuff! I tried some Cadbury milk chocolate the other day and the sweetness was overwhelming. I need that natural cocoa flavour, not sugar.

Is It Normal?

  • Meh, you're normal.

    Personally, I like milk, dark, and white chocolate. Eating a chocolate bar with a tall glass of milk is the best. XD

  • Yeah milk chocolate is junk. I grew up not far from Hershey, PA and got sick of candy kisses. Got into Ghirardelli at least 50% or more and won't eat anything else.

  • I dislike candy in general. I rarely eat unhealthy foods. When I do I try to still make it as healthy as possible like making black bean brownies. It's a lot tastier than it sounds lol.

    If anybody else is a health nerd and wants the recipe to try making it:

    1 1/2 cups cooked black beans

    2 tbsp cocoa powder

    1/2 cup quick oats

    1/4 tsp salt

    1/3 cup pure honey, or agave

    pinch uncut stevia

    1/4 cup coconut or vegetable oil

    2 tsp pure vanilla extract

    1/2 tsp baking powder

    1/2 cup to 2/3 cup chocolate chips

    Bake at 350F for 15-18 minutes and let cool 10 minutes before cutting them.

    A lot of the time I'll just put an apple or banana on the grill, bake a sweet potato, or make poached pears though.

  • I think it's normal, and is likely largely dependent on what you're used to eating. Those who are used to eating foods with a high amount of sugar or salt tend to crave those, while those who don't tend to find them way too sweet or salty.

    Ever since I cut out soda and most convenience foods, I find soda to be sickeningly sweet and syrupy most of the time, and convenience foods to just taste very salty and lacking in any other flavor. While I still consumed these things regularly, on the other hand, I never noticed it.

    Personally, the older I get, the more I like dark chocolate as well, and I've gradually moved up to higher percentages of cacao. I like to stick the bars in the freezer and break off small bits as an occasional snack, and it's perfect to curb a chocolate craving without all of the added sugars of milk chocolate (plus, a little goes a long way).
