15 Wonderful Ways to Give the Gift of Chocolate
Since ancient days in Mesoamerica, humans have had a love affair with chocolate. The Aztecs put so much value on cacao seeds that they used them as a form of currency. These days, we spend around 18 billion dollars a year in the United States in pursuit of our chocolate fix. Here in the US we eat close to 10 pounds of chocolate – per person- each year. (I am probably picking up the slack for someone else.)
Chocolate really is quite a wonder. Throughout its history, it has been consumed mostly unsweetened, sweetened, as a drink, and even as an alcoholic beverage. But whether savory or sweet, chocolate satisfies us on a deep level. It raises our endorphin and serotonin levels and dark chocolate actually has some nutritional benefits. So giving chocolate, either to yourself or to others, really is a nice thing to do!
This selection of wonderful ways to give the gift of chocolate is full of great gift ideas for that chocolate lover in your life. From decadent candy selections to really cool ways of serving up chocolate, there is a little something for everyone here.
