It's National Chocolate-Covered Raisin Day! Did you know that Nestlé Raisinets are one of the most popular candies for movie-goers? People can’t get enough of the delicious fruit and dark chocolate combination!

Culinary historians believe that humans first discovered raisins when they came across grapes drying on a vine. These sundried morsels soon became one of the most popular food sweeteners, second only to honey. Raisins are an excellent source fiber, potassium, iron, calcium, and certain B vitamins. Add some dark chocolate into the mix and you’ll also get a healthy dose of antioxidants and important minerals.
