All you need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.

World Chocolate Day, the celebration we had to have because what would life be without chocolate?
Did you know that chocolate reportedly gives a more intense and longer lasting “buzz” than kissing? Oo, la la.
A study released in early 2017 shows that chocolate consumption is on the rise here in Australia with more Aussies eating chocolate bars, blocks and boxed chocolates than they were in 2013. World Chocolate Day, July 7th, seems like a great day to join in!
Here are some ideas of how you might celebrate World Chocolate Day.
