Happy World Chocolate Day!
Tuesday 7th July marks World Chocolate Day, a day where chocolate lovers all over the globe can indulge in the deliciously smooth and creamy stuff completely guilt-free!
This momentous day commemorates the day that chocolate was apparently introduced to Europe back in 1550 and since then, it’s safe to say that chocolate has become a staple in nearly every country’s diet.
The consumption of chocolate actually began in Mesoamerica, where the cacao tree is native. The Aztecs believed that the cacao seeds were a gift from the god of wisdom, which made them incredibly valuable; so much so that they were even used as a form of currency.
Although chocolate is, unfortunately, no longer seen as an appropriate payment method, it remains a delicious treat valued by many of us. Here at Creamline, we think that every day should be chocolate appreciation day, so we thought we’d share just a few of our favourite chocolate-based products and recipes for you to treat yourselves to.
