Happy National Chocolate Day

Happy National Chocolate Day!

Everything, and I mean everything, is better with chocolate! I like plain milk chocolate, but I’ll enjoy dark chocolate if I must. I also like chocolate covered strawberries, chocolate covered bacon, cherries, bananas, or… chocolate covered everything!

Did you know the top four chocolate producing countries in the world are the United States, Germany, Switzerland, and Belgium, in that order? U.S. chocolate is a $20+ billion business. A weird fact is none of the major chocolate producers are major growers of cocoa, and none of the major cocoa-growers are major chocolate manufacturers.

Did you know this gross fact: A chocolate bar is allowed about eight insect parts in it, but the Food and Drug Administration says chocolate is safe to consume as long as there are not more than 60 insect pieces per 100 grams, or the chocolate batch is rejected.

What do you think about the chocolate to bug pieces ratio? Does that make you want to cut back on your chocolate consumption? What’s your favorite way to eat chocolate? BookWritingBusiness.com
