Anyone else who doesn't care for dark chocolate?

I also prefer milk chocolate to dark. I don't mind dark chocolate in desserts, but otherwise it's milk chocolate for me.

White chocolate doesn't appeal at all---it's like I'm eating butter, in which case I'll just eat butter.

Can you pee in the ocean?

White chocolate is even worse than dark chocolate.  *Gag*

totally can't disagree there--white chocolate is naaaaasty. Ok, you can have most of my milk chocolate, then. How about that? I reserve the right to the occasional slip, though.

I like all chocolate, milk, semisweet, and dark/bittersweet, but whereas milk or semisweet chocolate are easy to eat, the dark or bittersweet requires a little work on my part to get past the initial hardness against my teeth and bite of bitterness on my tongue.

Other foods that, for me, require work to get past an initially disagreeable texture or flavor are sweets with alcohol in them; coffee; and, formerly, sharp blue cheese, which now requires no work to enjoy -- acclimation, maybe?

Generally, I don't bother with foods that are hard for me to enjoy. Life is short.

Nice to find this thread. I've always had to sheepishly admit I liked milk chocolate over dark. In many circles around here it smacks of an unsophisticated palate--akin to liking well done meat over med-rare.

I like dark chocolate when it's part of something else to offset the bitterness, so I like it as part of truffles, or cookies, etc. With chocolate bars, though, it's got to be milk. I do find, however, that the older I get the less I can tolerate really sweet milk chocolate, such as in Hershey's bars, so for all I know I may be eating dark chocolate bars in ten years!

      Hello friends,
       
      We recently got our selmi plus ex and have had a handful of successful runs. So far mostly with our enrobing line. 
       
      Theres been 2 occasions now that I have noticed when tempering the machine is cooling past the target temp. When it does this it goes down into the 28c range and the screw pump has to shut off due to the temp and viscosity. 
       
      I also noticed the manual is pretty light on operational procedures. 
       
      The 2 things I can think of that might be causing this other then an equipment error is 
      the chocolate used is to thick or there is a build up of chocolate around the temperature probe near the faucet. 
       
      Wondering if anyone else has had this issue before.

      Hello! I'm fairly new to this site so I don't know if my search was weak. I'm trying to find a way to make Mandarin orange puree at home, but I couldn't find anything even similar in the forum. I am a home cook, but I have been making chocolate bonbons and other confections for over 4 years (intermitantly). It is too expensive for me to purchase this online- not because of the price of the puree, but the cost of shipping makes it prohibative. The recipes I've seen online are all differant and don't seem to be what I need. 
      I would love any help with this! I look forward to hearing and learning from those who have much, much more experience than me. Thanks!

      Help! I am an amateur and make chocolate truffles, bonbons, and caramels for friends and family. I made some soft caramel for filling molded bonbons. The flavor and consistency are fine, but the caramel is filled with bubbles. I don't know how to get the air bubbles out, and am concerned using it in my molded chocolates. I would like to know if it is okay to use. I have been making confections for about four years and this is the first time this has happened. I would really appreciate any help! I'm new to the forum and don't know anyone yet.

      I am making molded bunnies for Easter and I am finding that the
      necks are cracking and the head breaks away from the body. I have noticed that the neck is not as thick as the rest of the bunny. Total grams for this bunny is 200.
      Does anyone have any suggestions on how to rectify this? Oh yeah I didn't mention that after pouring into molds I place in the refridgerator.
      Any suggestions are welcome!
      Cheers
