    I eat about 40 grams of Green & Black's 85% dark chocolate a day. Not every day, of course. I could definitely eat an entire bar in one sitting, but I'm not a fan of the way that makes me feel, so I try not to. I'm a chocoholic. :]

      1-2 squares of ghiradelli 85% (or was it 90?). i'm out, so i picked up some G&B 60% with dried cherries. double yum, but i tend to eat a lot of that at a time so i try to stick with the ghiradelli. if only i could find some fair trade chocolate, super dark, that i actually liked. i've tried alter eco blackout and dagoba 87%- both tasted burnt.

        Ghirardelli 86% Midnight Reverie. my favorite! I have it like once a month on average, but when I do... I pretty much have no problem taking down the whole bar. What can I say? it's good stuff. Grok would do the same if he had some lying around the cave... lol.

          I eat a whole bar of 85% (lindt, ghirardelli, godiva). Probably twice a month.

            Word for word, I'm the exact same. I buy either the 70% or 85% variants, and make a real effort to eat only half the bar. Any more than that and I have some serious jitters and insomnia!

              Zero.
              I can't keep my paws out of it if I have it in the house.
              Which is all the more ridiculous if you consider that I don't even like chocolate.

                  I have several bars in my house, but very rarely "crave" sweets....which is why I can also have 2 gallon ziploc bags full of the crappy candy in the pantry (leftover from Halloween) and it not bother me...

                    usually just one square of 85% lindt every other day or so. i tried to move up to the 90% lindt, but it was a bit tasteless to me. i love to dunk it in some good hot coffee in the afternoons - i'm a teen librarian, & sometimes those teens just drive me to my chocolate.

                      Eating a whole bar of 85% Green and Black in one sitting is something I do 3-4 days per week guilt free. Makes me feel good and no negative affects to mood so far.

                      I've cut down on the consumption amount lately due to experimenting with ketosis.

                        2-3 squares of Green and Black 70% a day, usually right after each of my two meals. It's an awesome dessert and doesn't make me carb binge!

                          I've been doing a square or two of Lindt 85% or about the same amount of Green & Blacks most days. I'm amazed at how satisfying that little bit can be, it really keeps my sweet tooth in check.

                            Way, way too much. I eat 4 or 5 bars a week. Recently discovered that Lindt 90% is my fav.

                              It takes me about a week to eat a bar of 85%, either Green & Blacks or Blackout. I also have some of the 88% Endangered Species squares and I have about 2 of those a week. I also add cocoa powder to my smoothies or coffee now and then.

                                I can't really keep it in my house... I tend to get the munchies and then it's suddenly all gone. Lindt 85% is easily downed.

                                Perhaps I'll get it back into my diet once I get a little better control.
