It’s National Chocolate Day!
Today must be celebrated by eating chocolate! Twist my arm!! Maybe try something new! If you want to be health-conscious, try some dark chocolate.
Here are five things to know about chocolate:
➢ White chocolate originates from the cocoa (cacao) plant, but it is not ‘chocolate.’
➢ Switzerland is one of the top countries for chocolate consumption. The Swiss consume
about 22 lbs of chocolate, per person, per year.
➢ Most cocoa comes from West Africa.
➢ Allowing chocolate to melt in your mouth produces a similar reaction to that of a passionate kiss.
➢ Cocoa beans were used as currency by the Mayan and Aztec cultures. Perhaps this is where they saying “Money grows on trees” came from.
