The Chocolate Day Story: History Of National Chocolate Day. October 28th is the National Chocolate Day of the United States of America. One of the many things that I love about this big country is that every day is some food day or the other. I believe that it is the only country in the world that has a food custom like this. I really think that the rest of the world could do with more food and more food days like the Chocolate day. If I could, then I would be a Na’vi…. errr no.. If I could, then I would give everyone a slab of chocolate to everyone.
Chocolate, in my opinion, is the only true way to woo a woman’s heart, and is the greatest aphrodisiac ever known to a woman. Ok, on a more serious note, chocolate refers to either the raw seed or the processed end product of the seed of Theobroma cacao. The Cacao tree is a native of Mesoamerican region. This would include Mexico, Peru, Colombia, Venezuela and all the other countries in between. The Aztecs were the smartest people of the past who managed to make a drink out of the bitter cacao seed. Chocolate, my friend, is ancient. It has been recorded that cacao has been cultivated for more than three thousand years in Mexico. So respect!
The beautiful thing about chocolate is that is tastes sweeter when it is shared. So, what should you be doing on the National Chocolate day? It is pretty simple actually, you buy chocolate. But just don’t stop with buying them. And no, I didn’t imply that you should put a blanket over your head and eat the entire box of chocolates by yourself. What I came to say was this; take your box of chocolates to the people around you. If your neighborhood is filled with a lot of kids, give them chocolates. There is nothing better than chocolate that can make a kid happy. Then, what you could do is pay a visit to the local senior citizen’s home and give them the chocolates. The senior folks would definitely appreciate some chocolate and someone to talk to. Most importantly, give chocolates to your family and friends. They always have your back. You can show your appreciation with a little sweet something; chocolate.
Like I said earlier, chocolates taste best when it is share with love. Share now. Just do it.
More chocolate! More love! Peace out!

Ps. Whatever you do; never, ever, feed your dog with chocolate to your dogs. They are theobromine intolerant. Theobromine is a substance present in the chocolate. It will prove to be lethal to dogs.
