Day 9 of 153: Making Peace With Dark Chocolate

This post is for people who don’t like dark chocolate and can’t see what the fuss is all about. It’s also for those who would love to like dark chocolate but are trying to get past a nasty experience. You could also be trying to learn how to enjoy chocolate as part of a healthy lifestyle.

I recollect tasting dark chocolate for the first time when I was 8 years old. It wasn’t a pleasant experience so I will spare you the details. However, I don’t remember trying any dark chocolate after that till I started this business.

The key to discovering the dark chocolate you like is to browse for those that contain flavours or ingredients that you like.

So let’s say you like mint look for dark chocolate with mint or dark chocolate with orange or dark chocolate with nuts.

Also, try to start with chocolate that contains the least amount of cocoa possible. Look for chocolate with at least 50% cocoa content. The aim is to get comfortable with eating dark chocolate that contains at least 70% cocoa. So always try a little more cocoa content.

Dark chocolate like many things is an acquired taste but like cheese, it’s also about discovering what you enjoy. Plus, you will be able to enjoy a chocolate treat with the confidence that it not only tastes good but is also good for your health.

Or have you not read that dark chocolate is good for you? So build up your chocolate muscle, go for dark.
