Today is “National Milk Chocolate Day.” I’m a big chocolate fan and have been since I was a kid. When I was in my late 30’s or early 40’s my palate changed. Milk chocolate became a bit too sweet for me. Don’t get me wrong, I can eat it! But I now prefer dark chocolate.

Dark chocolate is definitely an acquired taste. Usually little kids are not big fans as it isn’t as sweet as white chocolate or milk chocolate. Unsweetened chocolate is just bitter. It’s perfect to cook with but to just eat, blah! Not so good.

A four year-old named Lyla saw her uncle eating chocolate and she wanted to try it. Uncle Dave decided to let her try it out and her face is priceless! Truth told, she makes some of the same faces I make when Phil & I do “Taste Test Tuesdays.”  Lyla quickly realizes that unsweetened dark chocolate is NOT tasty! If you have kids I am sure you’ve seen these facial expressions before.

The video has gone viral. Just a quick :40 second laugh to help get ya through the day. And don’t forget to have some sweetened chocolate today!
