Why Do We Love Chocolates So Much?

Try to think back to when you ate chocolate for the first time. Or, if you cannot recall that particular moment, close your eyes and try to imagine eating chocolate for the first time in your life. It could be a Dairy Milk chocolate bar that melts in the mouth or a 5-Star chocolate bar which offers a supple bite and tingles your senses with its hidden caramel or perhaps a Munch or Perk which gets crunchier with each bite. Now imagine the sudden rush of sweetness that your mouth gets with each bite of chocolate. So delicious and sweet, and so concentrated that your body immediately surges with energy after having it. That sudden rush of sweetness which chocolate gives is one of the several reasons we love chocolates. And chocolate is something that is loved by everyone regardless of the age.

Speaking of its health benefits even doctors recommend it on several occasions. It is a fact that chocolate provides energy to our body and relieves anxiety and stress. Moreover, all sweet products contain carbohydrates, and provide energy to our body. That is why in India we have the tradition of eating sweet curd before an exam or an important interview because sweet edibles relieve stress, relaxes our body and energize us. But let’s face it, chocolates taste much better than sweet curd. So why settle for sweet curd when you can have chocolates?

Even in the popular flick Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azakaban, when Harry confronts a dementor for the first time and it tries to suck out all his joy, Harry is filled with cold and despair at the end of it. In that situation Professor Lupin gives Harry a chocolate to help him cope with it and regain his strength.

Chocolate is one of those rare items which are both flavorsome and healthy. It can be eaten regardless of whether we are happy or sad. If we are sad, it makes us happy. And if we are already happy, then it makes us happier. If you do not believe it, try giving chocolate to a friend regardless of their mood and notice the sudden widening of smile and the cheeriness in their behavior.

And because chocolate can be eaten in any mood, it is also used in a wide variety of food items. Milk, cake, ice cream, bread, brownies etc. In fact, there is a whole category of chocolate cakes that you can eat. Irrespective of whether it is a birthday, marriage anniversary or any other occasion, no one thinks twice before ordering a cake, especially a chocolate cake. And with so many online cake delivery services, you do not even need to go to a bakery. Just place an order online and it will be delivered to your home.

It is really difficult to find someone who does not like chocolate. Chocolate is so dreamy and delightful that you do not even need an occasion to eat it.

However, if you are looking for an occasion to eat chocolate, then please note that July 27 is celebrated as World Chocolate Day. But that is not the only chocolate day that we celebrate. Bittersweet Chocolate Day (January 10),  Chocolate Chip Day (May 15), and Chocolate Covered Anything Day (December 16) are just few of the days dedicated to eating and celebrating chocolate.
