It’s coming! It’s coming! What has to be the best unofficial holiday of the year — Chocolate Day! July 7th officially marks what I consider one of the tastiest days of the year. 🙂
Chocolate Day is the perfect opportunity to indulge in chocolates in ample portions — as if you needed a reason, right?
Chocolate is America’s favorite flavor. It’s the flavor of choice in candies, ice cream, cakes, breakfast cereal, toppings, and a whole host of desserts. Unequaled in popularity, it certainly deserves a day in it’s honor!
Chocolate fun fact
Did you know? Chocolate is a vegetable. It comes from the Cacao tree found in tropical rain forests. Didn’t your mom always tell you to eat your vegetables?!
A special Chocolate Menu for the day….enjoy!
Breakfast: Your favorite chocolate cereal along with two or three chocolate cream-filled donuts. Wash it down with a little hot chocolate.
Mid-morning snack: A chocolate candy bar(with or without nuts) to hold you over and give you a boost until lunch.
Lunch: A big tall glass of chocolate milk is a must along with your meal. Try a piece of chocolate pie or pudding for dessert.
Mid-Afternoon: Eat healthy(???) with some chocolate covered raisins. This contains both vegetable and fruit.
Dinner: If you are an adult, sip a chocolate liqueur before dinner. Chocolate flavored coffee is a must with dinner. Dessert is none other than chocolate cake.
Nighttime snack: Chocolate ice cream, of course!
Origin of Chocolate Day:
Although my research couldn’t find any conclusive details on the origins of chocolate day, I did find two other wonderfully chocolate filled days to keep the celebration going!
If you’re a chocoholic, then you have two more chocolate days to celebrate! World Chocolate Day is on September 4 and National Chocolate Day is on October 28.
Today, take the time to enjoy one of the most popular desserts in the world. Whether you prefer to munch on a chocolate bar, sip on a steaming cup of hot chocolate, or smother an ice cream sundae in hot chocolate fudge, be sure to get your chocolate fix! Happy Chocolate Day!
July 7, 2014 is also Tell the Truth Day & Macaroni Day & Build a Scarecrow Day & National Strawberry Sundae Day & Global Forgiveness Day
July is National Grilling Month & National Ice Cream Month & National Vacation Rental Month
