It's not a hard line or a principled stance, but I'm not usually into white chocolate. It's not my thing.

HOWEVER

When I eat white chocolate, its cocoa butter texture has a beany mouth feel, which reminds me that cocoa is a bean, and that beans may be thought of as a poverty food because of their easy availability, but from a sensory standpoint are luxurious. Consequent to eating a small piece of white chocolate, which I do rarely, I experience a halo effect which improves my enjoyment of beans and of dark chocolate for several days, and sometimes several weeks.

I am thinking of this because I had a small piece of white chocolate after eating a bowl of split pea soup, and the experience was very similar, although one was sweet and the other salty.
