Keep it classic, choose milk chocolate

Jessica Doyle, Staff Writer

Nowadays, there are tons of chocolates to choose from. Out of all of them, milk chocolate is the best. 

Milk chocolate is always a safe option. Isn’t it always better to be safe than sorry? 

Even though there are healthier chocolate options, like dark chocolate, you do not get the same delicious, creamy taste.

Milk chocolate is classic. It is the original chocolate. It is the go-to flavor for ice cream, cake, cupcakes, and drinks like hot chocolate and chocolate milk. You do not see people looking for “dark chocolate milk” and “dark chocolate ice cream.” 

Sure, it is an option nowadays to buy the dark version of chocolate products, but originally companies only offered milk chocolate to the public.

When you are going to eat something sweet, do you want those empty calories to go toward something that is worth it? When I crave something sweet, I do not try to “sugar-coat” the empty calories. 

If you are going to eat something sweet, why not eat something creamy, chocolatey, smooth, and all-around delicious? The bitter taste of dark chocolate does not compare to the satisfying taste of milk chocolate. Those extra calories are worth it.

In the times we are in now, almost everybody is shopping on a budget. Why should citizens spend their hard-earned money on chocolate that tastes worse and is more expensive? They shouldn’t! 

Dark chocolate is almost always more expensive than milk chocolate and tastes less sweet and creamy. Sounds like a rip-off.

Baking is a hobby a lot of people enjoy, and others do not so much. Either way, when baking or cooking using chocolate, milk chocolate is always easier to work with. It melts easier and has a softer texture than dark chocolate. 

You can never go wrong serving milk chocolate chip cookies or giving someone a milk chocolate Hershey’s bar. 

Always better to be safe than sorry. Stay safe and choose milk chocolate.
