Today's Reason to Celebrate

January 10, 2015 is

Bittersweet Chocolate Day

Today is Bittersweet Chocolate Day! Bittersweet chocolate is a sweetened form of dark chocolate made with cocoa liquor, sugar, cocoa butter, and vanilla. Unlike milk chocolate or white chocolate, it does not contain any milk solids. According to FDA standards, bittersweet chocolate must contain at least 35% chocolate liquor (a non-alcoholic liquid produced from cocoa beans).

Consuming bittersweet chocolate on a daily basis is actually quite good for you. All variations of dark chocolate contain antioxidants that lower blood pressure and help protect your heart. Other heart-healthy foods include green tea and blueberries!

In honor of Bittersweet Chocolate Day, treat yourself to a few pieces of your favorite variety!
