Advantages: Great tasting, many varieties
Disadvantages: sometimes expensive, mostly unhealthy
Without chocolate where would we be? It really is one of the greatest inventions of all time. I have almost constant craving for chocolate as many people do. The taste is unique and lovely, with most varieties anyway.
The main types of chocolate are white, milk and dark chocolate, each made with a different blend of cocao beans and flavourings. The preferences differ between flavour for everyone, but overall I would say the most popular choice is milk chocolate, in particular, Dairy Milk or Galaxy from the large producers. Dark chocolate, a richer tasting product, however, is also good for the heart, and so is a popular substitute for milk chocolate
Chocolate is widely available in nearly every country in the world and provided by newsagents, supermarkets, and specialist chocolatiers such as Thorntons or Hotel Chocolat, who provide unique quality chocolate in gifted themed boxes and with various shapes and flavours.
Chocolate is an essential ingredient to not just snack bars, but bakery goods, and is the main flavouring in most desserts, such as the very popular chocolate fudge cake. Chocolate is also the used with liquors to create chocolate liquors, a very tasty treat with an alcoholic base.
Chocolate is one of my most favourite food products, which I eat on a very regular bases in various varieties and would very much recommend any chocolate.
Summary: Very good tasting but unhealthy on the whole
