Girls Love Chocolate

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tumblr_olv0ur77cd1vy24cpo4_350.png

Chocolate is a well-liked sweet but in fiction it's treated as the Trademark Favorite Food and occasionally even G-Rated Drug for not only the Sweet Toothed, but an entire gender. Adult or child, the female sex in general absolutely adore chocolate in fiction and many jokes are themed around female characters' love of it. Whether it be normal mood or PMS or pregnancy, this trope is usually stereotypical.

Contrast with Real Men Hate Sugar, where male characters hate anything remotely sweet. Compare to Chocolate of Romance, with which it sometimes overlaps, and Heartbreak and Ice Cream. Truth in Television for some, but not for others.

     Fan Works 
  • In the Harry Potter fanfic What Witches Really Want, Harry gains six girlfriends purely because of his unique ability to conjure up bars of chocolate that taste exactly like the real thing with none of the calories.

     Films — Animated 
  • Both Anna and Elsa in Frozen like chocolate, with Anna having more than a few lines mentioning it, however it's not specifically a girl thing, it's just their favorite food.

     Films — Live-Action 

    Literature 
  • Discworld
    • Zigzagged in Thief of Time. Susan loves chocolate, but has a strict regime of how much she allows herself (well, fairly strict - it doesn't count if it was nougat). Myria/Unity is drawn to it (but doesn't dare eat any until the end). Meanwhile, Lu-Tze thinks it's OK, but doesn't really see the appeal, preferring liquorice.
    • In Soul Music, it's mentioned that Susan's mother Ysabell was fond of a dessert called Genocide by Chocolate. When Death asks Susan if she likes chocolate she replies "I think it's possible to have too much", suggesting that the aforementioned regime may have been influenced by this.
  • Bridget Jones is described as eating copious amounts of Milk Tray, Dairy Box (boxed chocolates sold in the UK) and chocolate croissants.
  • In Only Ever Yours, freida secretly craves chocolate despite her eating disorder (and the School's strict enforcement of target weights). chastity-ruth even tells her it's obvious chocolate is freida's favourite food.

    Live-Action TV 
  • Star Trek: The Next Generation: Troi has a ritual regarding eating a chocolate sundae. "Chocolate is a serious thing." Ironically enough, Marina Sirtis, the actor who played Troi, hated chocolate. However, this is downplayed as it is clearly a Troi thing, not a lady thing. Dr. Crusher, Yar, Ro, and Guinan are not seen eating or talking about chocolate, and several male characters are seen eating chocolate in alternate realities. note 
  • Geraldine in The Vicar of Dibley. In "Animals" she deals with stress by eating 562 Crunchies in one night and in "The Easter Bunny" she has a hollowed out Bible with a giant Galaxy bar inside. When the villagers got her a chocolate fountain for her birthday in the 2004 Christmas Episode, she gave up on dipping things in it and just stuck her head in.
  • Like their movie counterparts, Elsa and Anna in Once Upon a Time both love chocolate. During one scene, Elsa prepares a chocolate-themed party for Anna, including chocolate fondue and chocolate pastries. She briefly considers chocolate ice cream but decides that would be too obvious.

    Newspaper Comics 
  • Cathy Guisewite's noseless protagonist Cathy routinely consoles herself with chocolate after a stressful day. Often, if Cathy has to loose an "AACK!", she'll dive into a box of chocolates facefirst as though it was a hog trough.

     Video Games 
  • In BlazBlue Kokonoe, being a Genius Sweet Tooth, loves sweets, but especially Ferrero Rocher chocolates.
  • A turn-of-the-millennium RTS game called Alien Nations features 3 factions: blue-skinned aliens called Pimmons, generic insectoids called Sajiki, and a matriarchal human-like race called Amazons. Pimmons and Sajiki featured mostly male characters, while Amazons were mostly female. Each race had their specialty product: Pimmons had "Mushroom juice", Saijiki had "Maggot lollipops" (not-so-subtle expies of alcohol and cigars, respectively). Amazons had chocolate cakes.
  • Kyoko Kirigiri in Danganronpa mentions in School Mode that she enjoys chocolate to help her stay awake during long investigations, sometimes combined with coffee.
  • Ashley of Another Code likes sweets and candy in general, so she likes it as well. It's one of the first things that allows her to bond with her father, who's an even bigger fan of the stuff than she is.
  • Beatrix from Battleborn has a thing for chocolate. One of her projects she sought approval for in the Battleplan 30's lore was Project LIMOS (Lingual Impulse Modulation by Olfactory Supersession). It apparently was a proposal to research the effects of chocolate on the behavior of Arch-Sciences researchers. When asked about this by the Mistress of Sciences, Lady Vurien, Beatrix's response was, "Everybody likes chocolate".
  • Crush Crush: Well, every girl can be given chocolates to get them to like you more, Ayano has them as her preferred Gift, and others request them too, as requirements to get to the next Relationship Level. Like Big Eater Bearverly, who wants 50 boxes to get through Frenemy Level.
  • In Ninja Pizza Girl, chocolate is one of the items Gemma can buy to restore her Sanity Meter after it's taken a beating.

     Webcomics 

     Web Original 
  • When CinemaSins dissected Frozen, each instance of the trope gets lampshaded.
    Jeremy: Ha ha. You women and your chocolate.

     Western Animation 
  • Wanda from The Fairly Oddparents has been shown to love chocolate on several occasions. Specifically:
    • In "Where's Wanda?", Cosmo has been revealed to have hidden Wanda in Chocolate City, Utah. This results in her being put on Level 14 probation.
    • In "Just Desserts", Timmy keeps reminding Wanda of chocolate. This gets her to approve his "All the food in the world is dessert" wish.
    • At the beginning of "Fairy Idol", Norm the Genie bribes Wanda with a hunky chocolate bar as part of his plan to get Cosmo and Wanda to quit being Timmy's fairy godparents.
  • Tehama from Fillmore! likes chocolate quite a lot. Ingrid even once bribed her into teaching her how to dust for fingerprints in exchange for chocolate.
  • On the Looney Tunes short "Porky's Romance", Petunia at first rejects Porky's overtures of love, until she sees the box of chocolates in his hands. So she quickly brings him inside and starts scarfing down the chocolates. Later in a Dream Sequence, a now morbidly obese Petunia is seen reclining on the sofa eating chocolates, while Henpecked Husband Porky does all the chores.
  • Caitlin Cooke from 6teen is established as being a huge chocolate lover—it's to the point where, after she got a job at a chocolate shop that lets its employees have all the free chocolate they want, she got fat enough to the point of where she could've easily been mistaken for being pregnant (she didn't realize that she was getting overweight until after she had trouble trying on a pair of jeans that she had been wanting to buy).
    • Caitlin's friend, Nikki Wong, is established as hating chocolate—however, much to Nikki's distaste, she develops a strong craving for the stuff when she's on her period.
  • In Little Princess, the Queen, Maid, and Princess love chocolate, but it's more like Everyone Loves Chocolate than Girls Love Chocolate as the King, General, and Chef are seen greatly enjoying it too.
  • In Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, one nibble of chocolate turns Daphne into Gollum.
  • The Loud House: All ten of Lincoln's sisters (pictured above) are said to be "chocoholics," as revealed in the episode "Lincoln Loud: Girl Guru". And that's just four of Lincoln's sisters.
