Wow, so I have to philosophically justify my subjective opinion that chocolate tastes good? Damn no wonder philosophy is a joke.

Chocolate is the by product of an inferior race that was bread out of existence by the Spaniards.
If we think about it like this we can say that all things that go extinct where flawed in some way.
I.E. your taste in chocolate is shit because you like inferior things destined to go extinct.

It is not a subjective opinion. If this is valid, then it would mean it is not subjective and that differing opinions speak to a matter of something being pathologically wrong with the individual, i.e. he/she may lack the neurological developments needed to perceive and assess it. The same way many of the masses lack the ability to discern melody which their "opinions" on music, is like a blind man opining on artwork.
You're just low IQ.

Why do I need to site a pre-existing philosophy to say that people enjoy endorphins? Also science is a sound basis for argumentation. Its argumentation from logos if you like. This is all scientists are doing when they're writing research papers. Making arguments appealing to logos.

It actually is subjective you utter brainlet. If eat chocolate to the point of it making you sick multiple times, the next time you eat chocolate you will think it tastes bad. Or perhaps I have eaten many foods which are richer than chocolate. Chocolate in comparison to these rich foods isn’t good.

This demonstrates the development of an aversion from classical conditioning, which is a biased opinion tainted by a corrupt experience.
>Or perhaps I have eaten many foods which are richer than chocolate. Chocolate in comparison to these rich foods isn’t good.
Then people who likewise have eaten these many foods which are richer than chocolate should perceive the same.

The ability to perceive taste and aesthetics is objective. Bad tastes and aesthetics are a sign of neurological or mental deficiencies.

Actually it is collective. Sociological experiments have proven this. People will agree with other people simply not to disagree or to be the odd one out.

>the ability to perceive tastes is objective
How can we account for differences in taste then? One person may like chocolate slightly too much, and eat it slightly too frequently, while another might hate chocolate, and refuse it when offered. Neither of these instances indicates a "mental deficiency" and neither of these people is objectively wrong for failing to perceive the other's good or bad taste.

Easy. Just say that you find [insert opinion] aesthetically pleasing and beauty is what you value the most.
Beauty is the most divine thing on earth. Order stands in defiance of entropy. And beaty is patterns and therefore order. The creation of life itself requires very specific conditions and is therefore unlikely, yet it happened. Aesthetics like a are a reflection and imitation of those unlikely circumstances. Therefore beauty is divine and whatever opinion I have is justified because I arrange all my thinking so that it pleases my sense of aesthetics.

Imagine a philosopher who is a materialist in regards to metaphysics and an empiricist in regards to epistemology. An easy enough person to imagine i'd say. You can say he is a scientist, as his views are aligned with most other scientists, but he is clearly also a philosopher. Since scientists necessarily hold the same views of philosophers who align with them, and not all philosophers align with scientists, then we can conclude that science is indeed superseded by, and exists within, philosophy.
