Have your tastes changed over the years?

My tastes for certain foods have changed over the years. Chocolate in particular has been a journey. When I was little, my favourite was white chocolate. In a supermarket sea of milk chocolate, white chocolate stood out as a novelty, which, when combined with the oh-so-sugary-ness of it, formed a winning combination for a sweet-toothed child.

But was short-lived. I soon drifted back to milk chocolate, choosing sweeter brands over creamy ones, and even dipping into caramel chocolate for a while. And as the years rolled on, my preferences skewed from sweet to creamy, and then developed a taste for the bitterness of dark chocolate.

There's something very clean, both in flavour and mouthfeel, of very dark chocolate. If you can get past the initial sharpness, a different kind of sweetness emerges. It's almost fruity in quality, which makes it such a great pairing for actual pieces of fruit, biscuit, and earthy delicious matcha.

What's your favourite type of chocolate? Is your preference the same as when you were a kid?

Tell me in the comments. Or if you've written about it on your own blog, drop a link to your post so I can check it out.

  1. Birdie, my very favorite cookie is white chocolate macadamia nut. So, so, yummy!! But I can't see eating white chocolate by itself. Hubby thinks white chocolate is a contradiction in terms, lol.
