24 March – Chocolate Covered Raisins Day
It’s Chocolate-Covered Raisin Day! Did you know that these are one of the most popular sweets for movie-goers? People can’t get enough of the delicious fruit and 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 of fibre, 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.
Enjoy a handful of chocolate-covered raisins today in honour of Chocolate-Covered Raisin Day!
