According to an article in today's New Scientist one biome (gut bacteria) are affected by some 67 so far identified things including one's preference for dark or milk chocolate. I extrapolate unwarrantedly from the research to say that dark chocolate is what my bugs prefer and I'm happy to oblige them.


I was 12 years old and my elder sister brought home some dark (no dairy) chocolate and I tried some. I was really annoyed that no-one had ever told me about it in my (to me at that age) long life. What a revelation it was.

I've not eaten dairy chocolate ever since then (knowingly, that is). I had some 99% recently and thoroughly enjoyed it. The only chocolate I'll eat nowadays is gritty raw stuff, made just down the road from me: and it means I don't have to share it.

That depends on whither they elect Trump or Hillary. But either way sometime before they hit eight billion.
