I was hoping that the chocolate color would be true to the name,and not the color on my monitor,which looks like a faded dark brown. I was VERY pleased to see the lovely dark brown chocolate color I was hoping for when I opened the package. The underside is a creamy beige,and complements the darker brown color perfectly. This is such a comfortable blanket. It is lightweight and so cozy. the fabric feels nice on both sides, but the underside is super comfy. I am so glad I purchased this comforter. Both of my kids want one for their beds. I may get an extra for myself when I order theirs, it is THAT fantastic! The fact that this comforter is machine-washable makes me more than happy to rate this product 5 stars.
