There is, quite simply, no debate: Milk chocolate is irrefutably the greater type of chocolate, proclaims Megan Garber of The Atlantic. Chalky, bitter, dry, too full of cocoa and lacking sweetness, dark chocolate does not come near to the pleasure that is milk chocolate. Chocolate companies may have gone out of their way to brand it as a superior product that is healthier, more mysterious and sophisticated, but this can't change its bland essence. Milk chocolate is sweet, creamy and delicious. It doesn’t try to overcompensate because it’s just that, simple and good. Dark chocolate suits the kind of people that take themselves too seriously.
If you’ve grown beyond childhood’s sugary desires, you should have the maturity to understand that dark chocolate is undoubtedly the best chocolate, argues Matt Duckor of Epicurious. Dark chocolate offers the complex, refined and rich taste that takes years to acquire. With just the right amount of bitterness and spiciness, it offers a uniquely firm, yet comforting embrace. Milk chocolate, in comparison, offers nothing but candy-like sweetness that doesn’t bring out the qualities of chocolate. Adults can appreciate dark chocolate’s health benefits aside from its better taste. Its robustness makes it uniquely stand out, far above milk chocolate.
