Women of America can rejoice, for today is Chocolate Day! Chocolate Day is always on July 7th, and it provides us with the perfect opportunity to indulge in our favorite chocolates in large proportions (just in case you need an excuse to do so). Chocolate is America’s favorite flavor in candies, ice cream, cakes, breakfast cereal, toppings, and a whole host of desserts. Unrivalled in popularity, it certainly deserves its own day!
If you need some suggestions as to how to celebrate this sweet day of confection, allow me to suggest some additions to your menu.
Breakfast: Try a chocolate cereal and/or two or three chocolate-covered/chocolate-filled donuts washed down with some hot chocolate or a mocha latte!
Mid-Morning Snack: Chocolate candy bar (with or without nuts) to hold you over until lunch.
Lunch: A tall glass of chocolate milk is a must, perhaps with a piece of chocolate pie or chocolate pudding for dessert.
Mid-Afternoon Snack: Try healthier options (kind of) like chocolate covered nuts or raisins!
Dinner: Sip on some chocolate liqueur before dinner (if you are an adult), and try either chocolate flavored coffee or chocolate cake for dessert.
Interesting Fact: Did you know that chocolate is a vegetable? It comes from the Cacao tree found in rainforests.
