Why do old people like dark chocolate?!


Question: It doesn't taste like something unhealthy. I rather eat liver and I hate liver. Just wanted to know why older people prefer it. When I go to Godiva I always make sure not to get any dark in the box since their chocolate is expensive. Sorry if I'm complaining too much but someone decided to buy me a Godiva box of dark chocolates.

Foods like chocolate are an acquired taste. The Aztecs ate it without any sweetening at all in it!! And it was only for the high nobility at that!! The lower classes could be sacrificed for eating it.

Most of us could do with a lot less sugar than we actually consume. Dark Chocolate has much less sugar than milk chocolate.

Why are you bothering to go to Godiva for chocolate when you have a 2 yr old palate??? Waste of money!!!


it has antioxidants which r good 4 ur body.

They probably like it better because their sense of taste fades with age, so the stong taste of the dark chocolate is the only way that they can enjoy the taste of chocolate.

Dark chocolate requires a mature taste which may take time to develop. Just like broccoli, blue cheese, liver etc...

I'm not old and I like dark chocolate. I think it's an acquired taste like coffee....you have to get used to it. Once you're into it, you're addicted! Maybe people just adjust to it when they're older.

Dark Chocolate has just a *hint* of bitter to it. I find it interesting.

it makes their sticker peck up

i don't know why us old people like dark chocolate. i have always prefered dark since i was a little kid - ( back before electricity). dark chocolate is healthier for you..

it's an aquired taste....I loved it and I'm not THAT old...

Why do kids like sugary sweet milk chocolate when dark chocolate has a more balanced flavor and is much better for you? I guess it's all a matter of taste.

dark chocolate is good for your body.
my granny eats any chocolate.
:]]


I've never heard of that. My granfather doesn't eat dark chocolate. In fact he doesn't eat any chocolate at all.

old people like bitter stuuf

The same reason young people like it. Age has nothing to do with taste. You like it or don't.

To me ,milk chocolate tastes like a bunch of sugar.
Dark chocolate is so much better in taste.
There is a point, over 85%- that is just too bitter for me.

Everyone just has different tastes.
