National Chocolate Candy Day

Chocolate candy is the perfect treat to enjoy at any occasion or time of the day! Chocolate has the ability to absorb the aroma of food it is stored near, which is why chocolate candy bars all smell distinctly different depending on the ingredients inside the candy bar.
Did you know that during the Second World War, the U.S. Government commissioned Milton Hershey to create a candy bar that would be included in the soldier's rations? The candy bar chosen was the famous Hershey Milk Chocolate Bar.
Today, chocolate is still clearly an American favorite treat as 2.8 billion pounds are consumed annually. That is equivalent to over 11 pounds per person! To celebrate National Chocolate Candy Day, enjoy some of your favorite types of chocolate candy. You can start your diet tomorrow, right?
December is National Fruit Cake Month & National Egg Nog Month
