    when we switched to primal, it became a "go to' quick food--so about 2 squares a day. but, now i'm tired of it, so i carry it around like a security blanket, but do not eat it. i generally find that i don't need a 'snack.'

    so, we are down to the usual 1-2 squares per week now?

    The dark chocolate I get comes in a bunch of little 25g bars. I eat half a bar at a time, two or three times a week.

    I keep hoping that if I'm Primal long enough I'll develop a taste for dark chocolate. So far, no dice. I'm still a milk chocolate gal.

    1/4 of a bar maybe twice a week. 80% dark chocolate. It was the top brand that Mark himself reviewed and recommended on a blog post he did about chocolate consumption.

    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!
