A minor disappointment
I am very fond of chocolate. As soon as I start a bar of milk chocolate, I can't get myself to stop eating it until it's all gone, the whole 100 g or whatever amount there is. Thus I must avoid milk chocolate at all costs.
Bitter chocolate with a higher percentage of cocoa solids is better in this respect. After I've had a little, I don't really want any more of it because of its bitter taste. I find that chocolate with 60-70% cocoa solids isn't bitter enough to prevent me from wanting more, so I usually end up eating Lindt's 85% chocolate, which is sufficiently bitter that I don't want to eat more than a little at a time.
Well, recently I had the opportunity to buy a bar of 100% chocolate. (Actually the ingredients statement on the packaging says it contains at least 99.99% cocoa solids.) Needless to say, I couldn't resist such a challenge, so I bought it and promptly started eating it, expecting something truly disgustingly bitter.
Unfortunately I was quite disappointed. I really couldn't feel any
difference in taste between this and Lindt's 85% chocolate that I usually eat.
It would be interesting to perform a doubly blind experiment about this,
but I very much doubt I could tell the tastes apart at better than chance level.
So I guess there's no reason to want to eat the 100% chocolate, except
for the snob appeal, and I fortunately don't know any chocolate snobs
that might be impressed by such a thing.
