December 24th is National Chocolate Day! Another reason to be patriotic? We celebrate not one, but two, National Chocolate Days! Today take the time to enjoy one of the most popular desserts in the world. Whether you prefer to snack on a chocolate bar, sip on a cup of steaming hot chocolate, or smother your favorite ice
cream in hot fudge, be sure to get your chocolate fix! Being that chocolate has been designated as America’s favorite flavor, make sure you make it proud today!
Did you know that the smell of chocolate alone increases theta brain waves, which triggers relaxation? Consuming chocolate can help you lower your cholesterol! However, the health risks outweigh the benefits, so make sure you enjoy in moderation.
If you can’t eat chocolate, a great way to celebrate is by watching the classic film, “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.”
