Your Choice: Chocolate or Vanilla

During the past few weeks, you have had to make some very tough decisions– choosing between vampires or werewolves, hot dog or hamburger, textbook rental or digital books?  But the toughest question of all is still unanswered and we want to put this issue to rest.  What’s your choice?  Chocolate or Vanilla?

It blows your mind, right?  Which to choose?!

Personally, I choose vanilla.  To me the taste is sweeter, more refreshing and not as “rich” as chocolate.  But, other than comparing the tastes, I wanted to learn a bit more about the delicious flavors and came across some interesting stats.  And of course I HAD to share 🙂
