I think chocolate milk is better because it tastes better and people drink it more than that other milk.

Stating that chocolate milk tastes better is purely opinion.
People do indeed drink chocolate milk more than "that other milk" you describe it as, but this does not make it healthy to humans.
To be complete with this debate, I'll be covering all aspects of chocolate milk, including: Its elemental buildup, its usage today, and how it influences the human body. After graphing the general overview of chocolate milk, I will then compare it to the overview of "that other milk". Sound good? Good.

The most common way chocolate milk is made, is by taking regular whole milk (or "that other milk" by your preference) and blending that whole milk with a powder (typically cocoa) and sweeteners such as sugars.
Both "that other milk" and chocolate milk come from the same cows, contrary to some people's beliefs, but the key difference between the two is that chocolate milk is richer in sugars and carbohydrates than whole milk is. Yes, we are taught that carbohydrates are used as the basic unit of energy storage, but there are different types of carbohydrates, the most unhealthy being sugar.
A small amount of consumption of these sugars won't have a significant amount of harm to your body, but large amounts can lead to obesity and diabetes in its consumers, and eventually heart diseases and cancers.

While most people from the Pro stance of this topic do think that flavored milk is tastier, it is not healthier, similar to most things we eat.
We can continue to drink chocolate milk, but this will only damage us as time passes.
It is much safer to drink the regular whole milk, with a little less flavor, but removing those excess sugars that grow to harm us in the future, than to drink chocolate milk, which has been shown to have those influences on the human body.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro's only arguments are that Chocolate Milk tastes better (which is an opinion, stated by Con), and lots of people drink it (which doesn't mean it's better per se). Con points out regular milk is better since it's healthier, lacking the harmful sugars that chocolate milk contains. Con's arguments go untouched thanks to 1 Round Structure, so only Con has standing arguments, so Argument points to him by default. Neither side heavily lacked sources (like demanding me to research or making claims that require sourcing), so I'm leaving that tied.
