What's Your Chocolate Personality?

Chocolate Lovers fall into different categaories all depending on what type of chocolate they like the best. In a study involving over 18,000 participants, Dr. Hirsch, M.D. (founder of the Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation) found that chocolate, full of pleasure boosting chemicals, is like a party for your brain. He also found that a persons' favorite exposes a lot of their personality traits. Check out your chocolate personality and see if you agree.

Dark Chocolate Lover:

You're a vivacious extrovert! You march to the beat of your own drummer and are the life of every party. You are an outgoing person and the perfect addition to any team. Dark chocolate carries a stronger sensory punch, more than any other type. For a lot of people, this would mean sensory overload, but not for you. No wonder you became a dark chocolate lover before it became a trend.

Chocolate with Nuts:

You're a super-friendly nurturer!
You're amaiable, open-hearted and a consummate giver. You know that biting into crunchy foods purges aggression therefore reducing the need to take it out on others. So, gobbling down nutty chocolate guarantees that you stay sweet to others. The grainy and irregular shape of nutty chocolate shows that in life, you opt for substance over "look-at-me" packaging.

Mint Chocolate Lover:

You're opinionated and clever! Both mint and onions stimulate the same nerve. The nerve that makes you cry when you cut onions, also induces "wakefulness". The fact that you can handle that stimulation means that you have a higher threshold for stress. Whether you're coming up with verbal curveballs on the fly or standing up for friends in a fix, you're up to the task. You feel most alive during a debate -when you can think on your feet.

Creamy Milk Chocolate

You're a sensitive thinker! The sweet creamy chocoate is the perfect reflection of your kind, compassionate nature. This appeals to your contemplative side. Just like you savor the sweet, rich goodness of milk chocolate, you mull over ideas until they become refined theories. So it's no surprise that by the time you put them into action, they're absolutely flawless.

Caramel Chocolate

You're a go-getter! This ooey-gooey confection is an adult treat. Caramel cravers tend to be scupulous and detail-oriented. Caramel takes patience to eat. What's more is that people who love caramel exhibit a greater attention span. It makes sense that you always have your nose to the grind stone. You nuture every project you work on.

Which one am I? Well, I think that I am probably the exception to the rule (either that or I'm a victim a multiple personalities). I love them all!

Dark chocolate is my choice. Is it true the saying,"once you go dark, you will never look back?"
