Dark, Milk, White?
Most memorable chocolate experience:
I attended culinary school and studied patisserie and baking. One day our instructor (chocolatier), told us to bring in different types of chocolates to taste and compare. Someone brought in an Italian chocolate that I tasted. A few minutes after I ate it I felt absolutely euphoric! I felt like I was floating 2 feet from the floor.

My favorite chocolate is:
any dark chocolate
