IELTS Speaking Part 1 – Chocolate

1. Do you like eating chocolate? Why or why not?

When I was young, I would say that I liked chocolate, from candy to chocolate cake and even ice cream. However, as I got older, I became more conscious about my eating habits and started to stay away from any kind of sweets, including chocolate. It doesn’t necessarily mean that I stopped; I just have it in moderation. I tend to eat fewer sweets now and less chocolate. Also, I had a lot of cavities in the past, so I cut back. But I still enjoy the occasional chocolate drink, especially during winter, and a little bit of chocolate biscuit, but not as much as when I was younger.

2. How often do you eat chocolate?

Very rarely, especially at this time of the year when I tend to lose some weight. I would say I have some cravings at least twice a week, especially if I stumble upon a really good chocolate milk tea that I cannot resist. But when it comes to chocolate cake or dessert, I don’t really go out and have that kind of food, especially since I rarely go out. If there’s an intense craving, that’s the only time I would go, and that’s probably twice a week.

3. Did you often eat chocolate when you were a kid?

I would say despite my parents being strict, I was able to consume a lot of chocolate as a child. Although they were strict, they didn’t really check what I did. My parents tended to be lenient when it came to food because they understood cravings. They thought it was better to consume it rather than want it over time, so they let me eat chocolate to get it out of my system. As a result, I don’t overindulge now that I’m an adult.

4. Why do you think chocolate is popular around the world?

Besides being a natural aphrodisiac, chocolate is a food that is well accepted in any country. It can be savory, sweet, or even bitter. It can be used in a lot of different foods. Additionally, it is relatively cheaper compared to other confectionery. Lastly, it has a generally acceptable flavor that most people enjoy.

5. What’s your favorite flavor of chocolate?

Back in the UK, I was given this orange-flavored chocolate. At first, I found it weird, but after having it a couple of times, it became something I liked. It’s hard to find in China, but whenever I visit my relatives in the UK, I always try to find that orange chocolate. The velvety taste of chocolate combined with the citrus flavor is just too awesome.

6. Do you think it is good to use chocolate as a gift for others?

It depends on the chocolate. Usually, chocolate has a romantic connotation, so when you give it to someone, it might send mixed signals that you are interested in them. If the brand of chocolate is cheap, like something you could buy at a convenience store, it might not be well-received. However, if you’re dating, giving one of the more expensive chocolates can be a good gesture. So, it depends on the person and the brand of chocolate you choose to give.
