How many people out there don't like chocolate? Do you like it?

Am I alone on this? Whats the consensus? I will sometimes eat chocolate but I really am not a big fan of it. It's too sweet and the texture does nothing for me. Around this time of the year I am reminded of what a freak I am as I turn down chocolate eggs left, right and centre, with people looking at me wondering what my problem is. So people? Do you like chocolate? Am I the only one out there who does not like it? Surely not.. Thanks in advance for responding, Tanika.

I worked for someone who hated chocolate. It made her ill to even smell it. I love chocolate, but I would never consider myself a chocoholic. If there's chocolate in the house, I can leave it. You're not a freak. Shame on those who look down upon you for not liking it. Everyone has their own tastes, and I think that it ought to be respected. Besides, the less chocolate you eat, the more there is for the rest!

I am a declared chocolate lover. I could eat all day, if it wasn't because it made me fat. My favorites are Milka, Marabou and Lindt, which I believe are all European brands. I certainly do not like the Hershey's brand. Try any of the brands that I mentioned, and I am sure you will change your mind. Be careful though, it can be quite addictive.

I love chocolate but I prefer mixed with other things likes nuts. I don't like the pure chocolate candys as well. In boxed candy I prefer the ones filled with cream or nuts but not the caramel.

The only time I like chocolate is right before my "cycle" starts each month and when I am pregnant. That is it. I don't like it, I don't know why, but I don't. I never really have either. I've never been really big on sweets anyway, except when I was younger and my mom wouldn't let me have them. Then of coarse I wanted it, but now that I'm older, it really doesn't hold any appeal to me. And I really don't like dark chocolate, or fudge. Or coffee. Or caramel.

I love chocolate now, but when I hit my teens I really didn't eat a lot of it. I was always more of a savoury food kind of person lol. I will only eat Milk Chocolate though. I hate dark, or semisweet or bitter chocolate. Anything like that makes me heave lol. I don't think you're a freak though. Lots of people out there don't like chocolate, it's just not something that tends to come up in conversation is all. I think you'd be surprised to be honest.

I too like chocolates but im not really fond of them... I just have them for a change of mood or when i feel like munching something but im not addicted to chocolates... If people thinks that im a freak because im not fond of them then, im least bothered... Their judgement doesn't affect my taste...

I like chocolate but not as much as I use to. I've noticed that my tastes seem to change with my age.

I'm not a big fan of black (normal) chocolate - it's far too rich-tasting for me. Nor do I like dark chocolates. However, I'm a HUGE fan of white chocolate and my absolute favorite candy bar is Hershey's White Chocolate... yum!

Personally, I feel dark chocalte is the best. It tastes better and is healthier for you. Too bad all the chocalte eggs and bunnies aren't dark chocalte. Dark chocalte all the way!

I really like chocolate very much. Once i eat it, i can't stop to eat it again and again. I'll never stop eating chocolate. It's one of my favorite snack. When my parent go overseas and after they came back, they always buy lots of chocolates but sometime just a few from the shop in the airport. Sometime i even hide a few of it it in the refrigerator. My favorite so far is Cadbury.

I love chocolate. One small thing though, It has to be good chocolate or I rather pass. Cheap chocolates are not in my taste. I like milk chocolate most, but also enjoy both dark and white chocolate too.

Oh I love chocolate but do not eat much of it these days. don't call yourself a freak everybody is different it would be a strange world as we say if everybody liked the same things wouldn't it!! I certainly do not think you are alone is what your likes and dislikes are.
