It is there in the air, I can feel it...It's calling me to commit sin! Okie,
I am just talking CHOCOLATE and the web that it casts on me. I don't know about all you guys out there, but do get ready for some 'choco-li-cious' times as Chocolate Day is on the 28th of this month.
I found some cool things about chocolate, just check them out...

  • Did you know that chocolate day is celebrated on the birthday of Milton Hershey,the founder of Hershey Chocolates. Boy, what a day to have your birthday on!
  • It's also scientifically proven that chocolates are good for health! They contain'happy chemicals' that make you feel good (I guess that puts the job of a lot of those medicine guys at stake).
  • For many years, chocolate was believed to be an aphrodisiac.
  • People in Denmark eat the most chocolate - about 30 pounds per person a year.
  • The melting point of cocoa butter is just below human body temperature - this is why chocolate melts in your mouth.
  • Repeated studies have shown that chocolate does not cause acne - or make it worse.(Oh boy! this is absolutely too good to be true)
