    Either is grammatically correct, but chocolate could mean a box of chocolate/a bar of chocolate, whereas chocolates would generally be taken to mean a box of chocolates.

    Re: chocolate

    Both/Either - depending on the context.

    I love chocolates - I love the individual small sweets made of chocolate

    I love chocolate - I love the foodstuff made from cacao.
