National Chocolate Day October 28- Celebrate

Eat Chocolate Today

National Chocolate Day October 28- Celebrate

 

Recently I was in Kona, Hawaii and went to a chocolate plantation. We walked through the groves and saw the pods hanging on the trees. They were 3 or 4 colors but told they were all the same.

Here is a pile of the cocoa pods that were picked off the trees.

Happy Chocolate Day

 

The little green Geckos like to lick the pods but do not eat them. These Geckos were so cute.

I thoroughly enjoyed this tour and now I know where chocolate comes from.

 

 

Celebrate and eat chocolate today. Heard on the news that eating chocolate is good for your memory but the study gave the subjects 25 chocolate bars a day. Maybe one or two would help but 25 bars?

 

Thanks for Reading my Real Estate Blog....

What a great holiday!  I didn't know where chocolate came from before reading this, had no idea cocoa came in pods like that.  I'd have loved to be a part of that study!

Happy Autumn!

Kristin~ Didn't see this post until later in the day. I didn't know it, but I celebrated with Snickers and Milky Way (our Halloween candy)!

Hi John,

Honestly I did not either so it was big surprise to see the colored pods. Apparently they do not taste good when you open the pod but they do smell like cocoa. Chocolate is my favorite flavor so I was in Heaven.

Hi Gloria,

When I was standing there watching the demonstration, these little geckos started crawling in and out of the barrels beside me and I think I was more excited to see the geckos than the chocolate. The field manager was then showing me birds and we took off to take some pictures before the bus arrived to take us to the next stop. It was a beautiful plantation.

Hi Donna,

Sounds like a good way to celebrate National Chocolate Day to me. Did you know there is Peanut Butter Snickers?

Hi Robert,

Did you know chocolate is good for you and they say that it helps retore your memory. I really like milk chocolate better than dark and they gave us samples at this plantation in Kona. Loved the little green geckos! Thanks for the feature.

Hi Donna,

I bought some for Halloween and I sampled them too. I love peanut butter and I heard on TV one night that Snicker's is the most popular candy bar in the world. I was surprised as I thought Hershey's chocolate would be the favorite.
