Taste of Chocolate is the third album by emcee Big Daddy Kane, released in late 1990 on Cold Chillin' Records. After the success of his first two albums, Long Live the Kane and It's a Big Daddy Thing, Taste of Chocolate became Kane's first album not to reach Gold sales status. The album received mostly good reviews, though not on the level of his first two efforts. Taste of Chocolate includes the singles "Cause I Can Do It Right", "It's Hard Being the Kane" and "All of Me".

The first single from the album "Cause I Can Do It Right" is notable for its music video, which had an appearance from adult film star Heather Hunter.[6]
