I have heard from friends that dark chocolate helps decrease your stress level, i have also read from the web that this type of chocolate has more antioxidants. I like Hershey's Dark, how about you? what brand of dark chocolate do you like?

Yes, I like dark chocolate. It's healthy for the heart. Yes, it's true. It has antioxidants. I also like it's bittersweet taste. I like Hershey's Dark Chocolate too.

I agree with you. The 60% cocoa content of Hershey's Dark chocolate!

I honestly hate dark chocolate. I know it has antioxidants in it but I totally prefer milk chocolate (or any other kind) if I have the choice of course.

I agree. It's just not my thing. I have had a few flavored/exotic dark chocolates that I was able to eat. I actually "liked" them. :)

Hi there I really love dark chocolates. Milk chocolates are tastier than dark chocolates, but health wise, I prefer the dark one with at least 90% pure cocoa or 100% is much better. Yes it is that dark chocolates have antioxidants and has a lot of health benefits based from a lot of studies. I love the bitter sweet SWISS Dark Chocolate.

Anytime in any form. Chocolate is always in. Personally I love chocolate with roasted almond and dry-fruits. Its tastes awesome and that blend of taste is really satisfying.

If those are the only ones available I will eat them as anything that spells c h o c o l a t e s is my favourite. If I had a choice I would go for soft centres something liquidy either syrup or rum and would just put the whole chocolate in my mouth and much away. Dark chocolates are particularly meant for diabetics but I have no problem there.

I love it! My favourite is Green and Black, it's organic and has several flavours. It is very expensive here though, so I usually stock up when I'm in Britain. I also like Lindt, so I stock up on that when I'm on Austria. There's a few good dark chocolates here too, but they don't have that many different flavours.

I like dark chocolate over other kinds of chocolates because it has a thick, full bodied flavor and fragrance. But some dark chocolates are made too sweet to mask the bitter taste which I don't like. I like Meiji and Hershey dark chocolate.

Yes I do... I love chocolates and of course dark chocolate. And it is good for the brain. I also like Hershey. Any brand of chocolates when it's delicious and yummy I will love it.

Like most people who responded to your discussion, I also prefer milk chocolate but as usual the healthier option ain't really my type. lol. I prefer the Meiji Black Chocolate if there is no choice and I really have to eat dark chocolate. But if one needs to lose weight, dark chocolate isn't really the best option because it almost has the same amount of fats and sugar as milk chocolate.

personally i like the milk chocolate ones... but i'm starting a healthier 2010... so i'm now opting for dark chocolates. yes, i also read that they have more anti-oxidants than the regular milk chocolates but any type of chocolate can reduce the stress level. i do not have a preferred brand, my choice varies depending on mood and what my wallet tells me to buy, if you know what i mean.
