Well the question of all questions when it comes to separated the herb of chocolate lovers...

Are you someone that loves eating chocolate or someone that likes using chocolate in desserts and having your chocolate that way? I know many in both categories but thought it would be fun to see where every stands....

You can only pick one! Just say what your favorite is...Chocolate or Chocolate dessert?

No contest. Pure chocolate.

However, there is I think a third category you've not included: the person who prefers their chocolate in confections (truffles, boxed chocolates and the like), as opposed to desserts. Maybe we should have a 3-way choice. Wouldn't change my decision, but there might be others who'd be motivated to respond.

Well for me, if I could only have either chocolate bars or chocolate desserts for the rest of my life, I would have to go with pure chocolate.

If we add in a third category of chocolate confections it would become a more difficult choice but in the end I'd still have to choose pure chocolate. Sometimes nothing else will quite hit the spot the same way. I do however enjoy truffles and ganaches immensely on occasion but they are too rich for daily eating.

Why do we have to make the choice again? I don't want to have to give any of them up! :( sob sob

Pure chocolate, of course. I've never been a fan of chocolate desserts anyway. Instead, I prefer fruitier fare, namely pies, galettes, and tarts.

I just like chocolate - I'll take it in all forms!! If I have the choice of three, I would take confections - its hard to beat a good truffle that just melts in the mouth or a bon bon center which just compliments the chocolate properly.

If the choice if just between chocolate or desserts then I think I would take plain chocolate most of the time (60-70%) and desserts the rest.

Pure chocolate would be the winner, although the small Manjari cakes you can buy at Pascal (restaurant/confectioner) here in Oslo are divine!

See it's not really fair, because while I like chocolate better and eat it much more often, if I had to choose between chocolate and EVERYTHING that could be made out of it (truffles, cakes, non-pure bars etc) then I might have to go with the 'everything else' for the variety...

I like both. Just depends on my mood. Sometimes I like a sweet bon bon and other times I like the taste and nuances of pure chocolate.
