Chocolate Day

Milk Chocolate Wheel, Chocoholic

Date When Celebrated: This sweet day is thoroughly enjoyed on July 7

As a devoted chocoholic, this food holiday is the perfect holiday. It is Chocolate Day, a July 7 holiday. This holiday is also called World Chocolate Day and International Chocolate Day. And this is no surprise as this confectionery treat is wildly popular around the world.  This holiday exists so you can guiltlessly chocolate from the moment you wake up, until bedtime. That means you can enjoy it at every meal, and for snacks, too.

This day is the perfect opportunity to eat your favorite candy flavor in ample portions. As a chocoholic, do you really need another excuse to overindulge in your favorite food treat? Well, if you’re looking for another excuse, you’re in luck. There is a second, separate holiday called  National Chocolate Day in December. 

Chocolate is America’s favorite flavor. It’s the flavor of choice in candies, ice cream, cakes, breakfast cereal, toppings, and a whole host of desserts. Unequaled in popularity, it certainly deserves a day in its honor.

Did you know? Chocolate is a vegetable. It comes from the Cacao tree found in tropical rain forests.

Favorite Movie for a Chocoholic: Both Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971) and the remake titled Wonka (2013).

History and Origin of Chocolate Day

Our research on this day did not uncover a specific date when this holiday began, Nor, did we uncover specifically who created it. But, without a doubt, you and I can guess who created this day…… confectioners!

An alternate theory suggests the chocoholic creator of this day had a mouth full of chocolate and therefore could not communicate the information to his or her publicist. As a result, the creator of this day may well remain anonymous forever.
