Dark chocolate is good too

The other day, as River was digging around on our junk shelf, he found a couple of squares of Lindt dark 85% chocolate. I love chocolate, but I’m no longer very excited about super dark chocolate – unless it’s dipped in very sweet peanut butter. Even so, I’d prefer milk.

“Puedo comer?” River asked, Can I have it?


I warned him that it wouldn’t be very sweet, and broke off half the square, expecting him to not like the bitter taste. He liked it just fine, and accepted the second half of the square, then asked if we could open the second square (no).

So while his tastes have gone a bit more than I’d like toward the typical toddler route, it’s interesting to see that he can enjoy dark chocolate.
