7 July – World Chocolate Day

 

World Chocolate Day - Elizabeth Place

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 produce cocoa powder and chocolate. If only chocolate bars grew on trees!

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 sauce, be sure to get your chocolate fix this Chocolate Day!
