Well what can I say about chocolate. If your reading this review you will be a chocolate lover and yes you've guessed it so am I. It now comes in many different shapes and flavours. Only today I saw yoghurt and strawberry flavour milk chocolate!
I just love the stuff and enjoy treating myself to a bar every so often. Sometimes I'll have a Snickers, a big bar of mint Aero, Galaxy Cookies, Double Decker, Crunchie, not all at once though! I'm stopping there as I'm now desperately wanting chocolate.
I was going to put something about the history of chocolate but found some better information, which I think everybody will enjoy as it will stop you feeling guilty when you are eating chocolate.
There are some benefits to your health from eating chocolate, but always remember eat too much and the weight will start to creep up.
Dark chocolate is beneficial to the circulatory system, and some believe it helps with brain activity and even fighting cancer, but not enough research has yet been carried out.
The most famous association with chocolate is as an aphrodisiac. How many times have you given chocolate to your loved one with a very different thing in mind? This is all down to serotonin which is naturally found in your body and basically lifts your mood and makes you happy
Most of my fave chocolate seems to come from Cadburys, who have been keeping the nation satisfied since 1824 when John Cadbury opened his first shop, a grocery, in Birmingham. Then in 1831 he started making drinking chocolate and cocoa and the rest, as they say, is history. Fact of the day, Cadburys Dairy Milk started life in 1905.
Summary: Give a bar of chocolate to someone you love
