About This Quiz

Choosing between vanilla and chocolate is like choosing between the sun and the moon. Or HBO and Netflix. Or maybe two of your own children. It's two great but different things that are equally awesome across the board, but maybe not so in your eyes. There has to be some kind of an edge somewhere, something that makes one stand out over the other in your mind.

Maybe you're a chocolate fan, enamored with the flavor's versatility. There are three main types of chocolate — milk, dark, and white. But then there is so much beyond that from pure cocoa nibs to ruby chocolate. If you're a true chocolate fan, you've probably indulged in everything from chocolate ice cream, which was actually invented before vanilla way back in 1692, to chocolate brownies, which appeared in a cookbook for the first time in 1896.

On the other hand, maybe you're a vanilla purist and enjoy the flavor that we owe to Cortes when he started shipping some back home to Spain in 1519. As the only edible member of the orchid family, there are actually about 150 kinds of vanilla even though most people have probably only tried two. 

Whichever flavor floats your boat, we're here to find out. Take the tastiest quiz we have and we'll see which flavor reigns supreme for you.
