World Chocolate Day

World Chocolate Day is July 7th which is celebrated by chocoholics worldwide. It is said that Europeans and Americans are among some of the biggest chocolate consumers. Much of the world’s chocolate is grown from cacao beans in Central and South America but the chocolate can be processed in countries like Switzerland and the US.

Want to take part in the celebration? Here are a few things you can do:

Drink chocolate!

You wouldn’t think of chocolate tea but surprisingly it exists! Our chocolate loose leaf tea is a blend of black tea and Ceylon tea allowing for a smooth taste and rich chocolatey flavor. You wouldn’t even notice it’s tea when you first try it, especially with a splash of milk and sugar. If you want to have more fun with it, try making it into a latte! If you don’t fancy chocolate tea then hot/drinking chocolate is the next best thing. For the most indulgent drinking chocolate, try Cadbury’s Drinking Chocolate.

Make something chocolatey

Many of my favorite desserts involve chocolate. Try making some simple brownies or if you feel adventurous, make a chocolate cake! Challenge yourself to make a flourless chocolate cake. However, if you’re in a time crunch, then cake mixes are the next best thing. 

Eat chocolate bars!

Of course it’s not World Chocolate Day without the chocolate bars. If you are looking for a creamy indulgent treat then look no further than Cadbury’s. One of the oldest chocolate makers in the world, their most famous chocolate bar is the Dairy Milk which features a glass and a half of milk in each bar. The chocolate also has the Royal Warrant which is the the seal of approval from the British Royal Family. Try plain Dairy Milk, Whole Nut, Flake, Bournville, or my personal favorite, Wispa!  

Trivia: Cadbury actually started their business selling drinking chocolate back in 1824.
