That makes more sense. I haven't used chocolate flavors but I hear they burn at a lower watts. The earlier posts may be right. That can be fixed by higher ohm coils or lower volts battery.
The other possibility is the thicker liquid is not wicking fast enough. The PT heads should have 2 flavor wicks laying on top of the coil. You can remove 1 to see if it helps but that could cause a new problem of flooding. That would be the easiest to test.
If you can make it into a B&M they might let you use a VV. Go in with a fresh tank, turn it down all the way and see if that does better. If so the higher ohm coils should work with your current battery.

When I'm watchin' my TV and a man comes on to tell me how white my shirts can be.
Well he can't be a man 'cause he doesn't vape the same apv's as me.
Again...regardless of all other things, if you run your ProTank over 6.5 watts, you run the risk of burning wicks, coils, juice. It is clearly recommended for 6.5 watts. So if you have only a 3.7 volt device...
1.8 ohms means (3.7 x 3.7)/1.8=7.61 watts
2.2 ohms means (3.7 x 3.7)/2.2=6.22 watts
2.5 ohms means (3.7 x 3.7)/2.5=5.48 watts
There are no men like me. There’s only me.
Last night I ordered at VV Itaste svd. So I only have a few more days then I will have a much better set up. For now I will stop by and get some higher ohm coils to last me. This is the first time I have ran in to this issue. I am not sure what ohm coil came with the system but I did not have this problem till i changed them out.
The problem you're describing sounds like it has more to do with the juice and less to do with a resistance or other technical problem. I've been DIY'ing since Nov '12 and I can tell you not all juices are created equal. Sweet and savory juices tend to eat up coils and alot of people including myself have had the exact issue you describe. Also thicker juices may be harder for those coils to wick, could be related as well. Though they usually last alot longer than 4 puffs which is why I'm still saying it might be related to your problem.

A PT kit typically comes with a 2.2 and 2.5 ohm head.
I agree with Eddard - even 3.7 volts can run a 1.8 ohm Kanger coil too hot. Hell, I find that even 3.2 volts is practically too much for a new 1.8 ohm Kanger coil. Because of that I quit using them - there just isn't any room to adjust the voltage any lower with the 1.8 ohm coils. The 2.2 ohm coils seem to be the best happy medium.
The other issue that sorta came up here is your liquids. In general, very dark or very sweet liquids can gunk up a coil really fast - in a matter of days if not hours. If you love that chocolate you just may have to get used to cleaning coils very often. Mind you, running a coil too hot is only going to make the problem happen even faster. Once you crud up a coil with flavorings and sweetener "burned" onto the wick anything you try to vape after that is just gonna taste... burned.
Have you checked out the cleaning methods for Kanger coils yet? Don't toss any of the "bad" coils out - they can be rescued with cleaning. Just set the used 1.8 ohm coils aside for now until you get your VV battery.
Thank you everyone who contributed here.
I learned A TON!!
