Celebrate Chocolate Today & Every Day

Just read that today, October 28, is National Chocolate Day.

HOW did we not know this?

Apparently, there's a lot as in MANY chocolate celebrated holidays throughout the year, but National Chocolate Day today celebrates all things chocolate.  

We've all heard about the benefits of eating chocolate and how it can provide physical, psychological and emotional benefits. 

That's all true, isn't it? And, if not please keep it quiet. Sometimes living in denial isn't such a bad thing.

Deemed America’s favorite flavor, chocolate is well celebrated annually. It's equal to a whole month of celebrating, just not all at onceSo if like us you want to celebrate chocolate more than a single day, here’s a list of monthly chocolate-related ways to celebrate throughout the whole year. After all, any reason to celebrate (and enjoy) chocolate is good great:

Talk about timely, with Halloween being celebrated this weekend in various forms, it's even a better reason to enjoy chocolate. Since we may be a bit "over the age limit" for trick-or-treating (nevertheless young in heart and mind), we'll let the grandkids and others have fun. And, we'll celebrate privately with some of these favorites. Snack size portions have less calories — right?

Grenville read that you should eat 2 pieces of dark chocolate per day for health reasons. And, he feels that piece size is optional — the bigger the piece the healthier he feels.

Are you celebrating too & what's your favorite chocolate type?

Strangely I've got an aversion to dark chocolate, but absolutely love milk chocolate. I'll tend to go for bars, like Reese cups, Hershey's almond bars, and Kit Kats.

I'm with Grenville. Dark chocolate is what is really good for you. Mind you, I only go to 70% before it gets too bitter for me. As for the size of the pieces ...

Emma Springfield said...

Scarecrows at Halloween are a must. You have some great examples.

I don't need a reason to celebrate chocolate, but it's nice to know there are lots of them out there if I do need an excuse. :)
