The taste of chocolate comes from a mixture of chemicals, many resulting from the roasting process, in which sugars and amino acids combine, forming members of a family of molecules called pyrazines, which contribute to the nutty, roasted and chocolately sensations.

The most widely accepted explanation for chocolate cravings focuses on its sensory properties, its unique combination of sweetness, taste, and texture.
