Today's Reason to Celebrate

Chocolate Day

Today is a delicious reason to celebrate—it’s Chocolate Day!

Did you know that chocolate actually comes from trees? It's true! This small tree is called Theobroma cacao, or the cocoa tree. Its fruit produces cocoa seeds, which in turn produces cocoa powder and chocolate. If only chocolate bars grew on trees!

If you're a chocoholic, then you have two more chocolate days to celebrate! International Chocolate Day is on September 13 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!
