Today, July 7, 2016 is Chocolate Day!

European’s discovered chocolate a little later than everyone else but on July 7, 1550, sources say that European’s  made it the internationally recognized day to celebrate the tasty treat.

Enjoy this day by eating a proper amount of chocolate without remorse and guilt! Chocolate has become one of the most popular food types and flavors in the world.

Chocolate is made from cocoa beans, the dried and partially fermented seeds of the cacao tree, a small evergreen tree native to the deep tropical region of the Americas. The Aztec’s considered chocolate so valuable that it was used as currency.

The health effects of chocolate refer to the possible beneficial or detrimental physiological effects of eating chocolate mainly for pleasure. For example, cocoa and dark chocolate may support cardiovascular health. Other effects under preliminary research include reduced risks of cancer, coughing and heart disease.
