But have you ever stopped to consider the ultimate question: What does your chocolate say about you?
(News.com.au) We enlisted the help of flavourologists from Australia’s most popular chocolate brand Cadbury, who pooled their internal data and market research to reveal what your go-to block says about you:
1. Milk Chocolate
The Dairy Milk milk chocolate block has ‘the equivalent of a glass and a half of pure full-cream dairy milk in every 220g.’
Favoured by: Crowd pleasers
They like: Football, pop and comedies
It says: “Everybody loves you. In fact if they could, they would crowd around you chanting your name. But they understand this elation could be annoying (especially when you’re trying to sleep) so instead they whisper “oh goodie” under their breath every time you walk in.”
2. Turkish Delight
A delicious blend of Turkish Delight jelly covered in Dairy Milk milk chocolate.
Favoured by: Those with a curious nature
They like: Travelling, foreign music and fantasy or sci fi films
It says: “You like adventures. Ones that start with you ripping up the map and bounding off into the unknown. You love exploring exotic places and you’re curious by nature, which means you’re always that person who presses a button when they’ve been told not to. KABOOM!”
Milk chocolate filled with a variety of flavoured fondants including strawberry, pineapple, orange, coconut ice, Turkish Delight and caramel.
Favoured by: The variety lover
They like: Cooking, indie music and action films
It says: “You’ll give anything a go — even the ukulele — and you’re known for your super-eclectic tastes. Your love of variety means you’re always compelled to move the furniture around, much to the annoyance of your flatmates. You just like to try different things — a bit of this with a bit of that is your type of adventure.”

Favoured by: Lovers of the finer things in life
They like: Luxury goods, classical music and romance movies
It says: “Why walk when you can canter aloft a white stallion with a fine jumper draped over your shoulders? This is you all over, because you like the finer things in life. Yes, they can be simple — as long as they’re simply exquisite. Open fires, fine china, a distant violinist, and a shiny vintage car — just reading these words get you excited.”
5. Rocky Road
A delicious mix of marshmallows, cherry flavoured jellies, peanuts and coconut, all covered in Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate.
Favoured by: 20 per cent party animal, 80 per cent social butterfly
They like: The latest bars and restaurants, dance music and comedies
It says: “No one would ever call you boring, that’s for sure. 20 per cent party animal and 80 per cent social butterfly, you keep everyone around you entertained and on their toes. You love to dance and what you lack in refined skill you make up for with absolute enthusiasm.”

Favoured by: Big gooey sweethearts
They like: Animals, pop and romance movies
It says: “It takes a little time to get to know you, but once people do they discover you’re a big sweetheart. You love to surprise your friends and loved ones, sometimes by serenading them in a public place. You wear your heart on your sleeve and always cry at weddings.”
Crisp Hokey Pokey Honeycomb Pieces, covered in milk chocolate.
Favoured by: Those who are all energy
They like: Shopping, dancing and action flicks
It says: “Like a caffeinated Jack Russell crossed with a jet ski, you’re all energy. You’ve always got something to do or somewhere to be or someone to talk to, and you find the prospect of chilling out and doing nothing kind of stressful. Even sitting down and watching a movie is pushing it — that’s why you always get shushed at the cinema.”
8. Top Deck
Milk chocolate on the bottom, with a layer of creamy white chocolate on the top deck.
Favoured by: Born debaters
They like: Politics, news and current events; R & B and drama films
It says: “People hate arguing with you because you’re a born debater; you see the pros and cons of every possible option without even trying. The downside of this is that it takes you forever to make decisions. Instead of one answer, there are always two, because like a tightrope walker (without the leotard) — you’re all about balance.”
9. Fruit and Nut
The marriage of almonds and sultanas smothered in milk chocolate.
Favoured by: People full of juicy secrets
They like: Reading and books, easy listening music and thrillers
It says: “You initially come across as quite straight and narrow, but under that squeaky-clean facade you’re actually hiding lots of juicy secrets. You know what we’re talking about. But you’re not going to tell anyone about it, no matter how hard they tickle you. Your secrets are all yours to be enjoyed — unless someone tells you theirs first of course.”
10. Roast Almond
Roast almonds blended with smooth milk chocolate.
Favoured by: The wise one
They like: Technology, classical or soul music and documentaries
It says: “You are the wise one — owls have nothing on you. In fact, they’re really jealous. They hold weekly meetings and debate why you’re so smart, but the only conclusion they come to is: it’s because you just are. Your friends already know this and go to great lengths to make sure never to play Trivial Pursuit against you; you’re a total board game shark.”

Favoured by: The vivacious and outgoing
They like also like: Festivals and events, rock n roll, dramatic movies
It says: “You’re a great conversationalist, and people often call you when they need advice or cheering up. You could fill stadiums with people hanging on your every word, even though you’re only talking about what you’re going to buy in the supermarket. It’s not what you say; it’s how you say it.”
12. Black Forest
A mouth-watering combination of cherry flavoured jellies and biscuit pieces blended in with milk chocolate.
Favoured by: The loyal and fierce
They like: Most sports, hip hop or rock and action flicks
It says: “You’re down-to-earth, very loyal and fiercely protective of your friends and family. So if you were an animal, you’d probably be a Labrador-slash-Lion. But, there’s nothing bitey about you at all — in fact, along with your incredible loyalty, you’re very generous and affectionate. You’re also a natural-born star, and even if you aren’t famous yet, you probably will be soon, complete with your own action figure and reality show.”
13. Old Gold Dark Chocolate
Rich in cocoa and a natural source of antioxidants, Cadbury Old Gold is the premium dark chocolate.
Favoured by: The health conscious
They like: Getting into the great outdoors before snuggling up to watch a doco or a drama.
It says: “You’re all about keeping fit and making the most out of every day — but you’re not one to deny yourself the finer things in life. You’re the person others turn to when they need advice about everything from what they’re eating to who they’re dating, and you aren’t afraid to make your opinions known. Look good, feel great is your mantra: You’re likely to enjoy a square or two of Old Gold each night with a glass of wine after dinner.
