“Dark chocolate is at least 60% coco beans therefore it’s a vegetable”

Dark chocolate contains cocoa solids and cocoa butter, so many people insist that it’s basically a bean—and that it should be considered a fruit or a vegetable. The argument is made mostly in jest.

“cacoa is a plant, right? hence a vegetable. so this dark chocolate square in my had says it’s 60% cacoa” was posted on Twitter by L Michelle Smith on January 18, 2009. “My 32 year old sister said 60% cacao dark chocolate is basically a vegetable #fitfam” was posted on Twitter by saira on December 31, 2014. “85% dark chocolate is basically a vegetable” was posted on Twitter by That鈥檚 饾様饾槳饾槾饾樀饾槮饾槼 Latino to You on July 8, 2020. “Dark chocolate is at least 60% coco beans therefore it’s a vegetable” was posted on Reddit—Showerthoughts on June 2, 2021.


Wikipedia: Dark chocolate
Dark chocolate (also known as black chocolate, dark black chocolate, plain chocolate, or sour chocolate) is a form of chocolate containing cocoa solids and cocoa butter, without the milk or butter found in milk chocolate. Government and industry standards of what products may be labeled “Dark chocolate” vary by country and market.

Chili, cheese, and dark chocolate. Is that a balance diet for lunch? Can chocolate count as a vegetable? It comes from a plant.....

Cacao beans aren’t vegetables… they’re a fruit.
