Happy Chocolate Awareness's Day

Happy Valentine's Day to the special people in our lives. If you spend time reading this blog, that means you, too!

Chocolate isn't a part of our daily lives, believe it or not, and didn't become a part of our girls' lives until they were well into childhood. Today, however, we all enjoyed watching a video about how chocolate is made. The annual statistics for the use of chocolate by the Hershey factory alone were staggering:
600 million pounds of chocolate
200 million pounds of nuts
700 million pounds of milk
an undisclosed amount of sugar, but since it's listed FIRST on the ingredients we can assume it's well over 700 million pounds.

Here's to a bite or two for you today.

  1. Sugar? You mean Cocoa is not the first ingredient? How weird is that. They shouldn't call them chocolate bars, but maybe chocolate flavored sugar bar.
