WORLD CHOCOLATE DAY: JULY 7TH

"CHOCOLATE MAKES THE WORLD GO ROUND!"

 

"Everywhere in the world there are tensions – economic, political, religious. So we need chocolate."

Alain Ducasse

 

July 7th, is World Chocolate Day! It's one of my personal favorite days of the year! Of course, as far as I'm concerned EVERY DAY of the year should be Chocolate Day, if not a full national holiday! After all, isn't chocolate one of the primary food groups? And if it isn't, it sure should be!

 

"There are four basic food groups: milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate, and chocolate truffles."

33 FUN & INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT CHOCOLATE

 

"As long as there is chocolate, there is happiness."

Gerard Trotman

 

Lately, we've been hearing that dark chocolate is actually a "super food " with tons of health benefits.  If these health benefits don't give you an excuse to eat some chocolate today and every day, I don't know what will.

 

"The 12-step chocolate program: NEVER BE MORE THAN 12 STEPS AWAY FROM CHOCOLATE!"

Terry Moore

 

By the way, if you haven't yet discovered Lilly's chocolatewhich is sugar free, you should check it out--totally sinful and you'd never know you are missing out on the sugar! Pleasure without the guilt! You can order Lilly's chocolate on-line, but if you live in the Charlotte metro area, Whole Foods, Target, and Harris Teeter stores carry it.

 

 "I could give up chocolate but I’m not a quitter."

Anonymous

 

I recently came across a great article on 21 Healthier Ways To Eat Chocolate. Once again, pleasure with out the guilt!

 

"Chocolate is happiness that you can eat."

Ursula Kohaupt

 


Remember those Got Milk? and Eat More Chickin! ads? Personally, I can pass on the milk and chicken. Instead, my mantra would be: Got Chocolate! and Eat More Chocolate! 

 

Got Chocolate?

East more chocolate

 

So go ahead... eat more chocolate on World Chocolate Day.

 

Where To Buy Chocolate "To Die For" In The Greater Charlotte Area:

Joan Cox that's why I knew you'd pop up at some point today... and you know that I somehow think there's something odd about not liking chocolate! BTW,  I do eat pop corn, albeit rarely.

Dark chocolate is my all time favorite.  Thank you for sharing this day of celebration, though eating chocolate is always a celebration.

Leanne Smith hi Leanne... dark chocolate has always also been my favorite... but I've developed a taste and appreciation for really good milk chocolate, as well.

I continue to wish, Nina, that my waistline didn’t like chocolate so much but it is a true treat 🙂

Hi Nina- you know how I feel about chocolate!!!!  I always have a stash in the house. There is a wonderful chocolate shop not even 5 minutes from our home and once you have their chocolate, then you get pretty picky about other chocolates!!! I'm with you...every day should be chocolate day!!!  

I have to add that i love all of your quotes!

Kathy Streib thanks, Kathy... I spent a while searching down the right quotes for World Chocolate Day. No doubt about it... once you've enjoyed really good chocolate you can't go back to the mundane.

Nina I agree that chocolate makes the world go around, but unfortunately it tends to make my blood sugar go around as well ..... LOL

Who knew Nina Hollander, Broker ?  I can't say I'm sorry I missed it, as I love chocolate!  If it's here, it's gone.  So look at all the calories I saved this year!
