July 7: Chocolate Day

“The superiority of chocolate, both for health and nourishment, will soon give it the same preference over tea and coffee in America which it has in Spain.” – Thomas Jefferson

July 7 marks that special day when chocoholics across the nation united to celebrate their love of this tasty cocoa treat.

Chocolate is the widely favored candy treat adored by fans for almost 200 years. Even health nuts can appreciate the benefits chocolate offers. Researchers suggest that chocolate in moderation is healthy for the heart and could reduce high blood-pressure. It also contains theobromine, which is a mood enhancing substance that triggers the release of endorphins.
