Chocolate or Vanilla?

I always tell Jim he's like a woman when it comes to his chocolate obsession. When he wants chocolate, he will scour the kitchen looking for something to satisfy his craving. Sometimes he'll even melt chocolate chips in the microwave and eat them with peanut butter if he can't find anything else chocolaty enough. I've learned that some of his family members (all women) are the same way.

I'm different.

I've come to the realization that -- dare I say it -- I prefer vanilla over chocolate. I don't even like chocolate ice cream (yuck). Chocolate candy does nothing for me. I like vanilla cake better than chocolate. Same with pudding. I even prefer french vanilla hot "chocolate." Is that weird? Am I betraying my sex by making this announcement? I mean, as a woman, aren't I supposed to crave all-things-chocolate? I don't. I like it. I'll eat it. But, that's as far as my passion for chocolate goes.

Jim thinks I'm crazy, or that there's something wrong with my taste buds.

What do you think?

What do you prefer?

I prefer chocolate. Big surprise. However, Haylee and Brady generally choose vanilla over chocolate with a lot of things.

If you're crazy, then I am too. Chocolate has never been my treat of choice. Give me a doughnut, cheesecake, or cookies any day over something chocolatey. Chocolate ice cream and chocolate cake are the two worst sweet creations ever made!

I'm crazy too! For some reason I really just don't like chocolate! My in-laws think I am crazy they practically live and breathe chocolate! I wont even touch chocolate cake or ice cream!!!

I am a chocolate girl all the way. I don't even like sugar or sweet stuff-but chocolate is my one fix! I actually like it dark and bitter...like natural chocolate. Even chocolate lovers think that is weird! But don't feel bad for betraying womankind. I hear there are lots of you out there!

I think it's cool to be different - good on ya woman! Chocolate can probably be attributed to 5+ pounds of this pregnancy for me;)

I am definitely crazy over chocolate. It must be a Stoehr thing bcse Steve pretty much hates it too...anything chocolate like milk, mousse, cake, ice cream. He does like good plain chocolate from countries other than our own though.
Yes, I do think you are odd. :)

Well, I am a choco-nilla girl myself. I don't like chocolate ice cream and prefer vanilla pudding, cake, and vanilla hot "chocolate".
I do however Need chocolate, especialy when I'm pregnant. Mike has a chocolate thing too, and he is not a woman, in case you were wondering.
