A day that is close to many people’s hearts, World Chocolate Day. Every 7th of July, the world comes together to celebrate this sweet treat. The reason behind the specific date is that it commemorates the introduction of the sweet into Europe in 1550. Statistics state that in 2020 there will be 453 confectionery manufacturing enterprises in the UK alone.
Some sweet facts about chocolate:
- The Mayans are said to be the first to discover chocolate. In their times, it was believed that chocolate was worth its weight in gold.
- Chocolate melts at just below human blood temperature, with milk chocolate having higher levels of cocoa butter, so it is more likely to melt in your hand, with dark chocolate likely to melt in your mouth quicker.
- A study conducted by the University of Nottingham concluded that eating dark chocolate can boost the blood flow to certain parts of your brain, which will lead to an increase in duty and attentiveness.
- The first solid chocolate bars were actually produced in the UK in 1847 by Fry’s.
