National Chocolate Covered Anything Day

Chocolate has been around for over 3000 years. It’s hard to imagine a time when it wasn’t there! Initially, people used it in liquid form, and only later did chocolate tiles appear. Researchers have found artifacts that confirm that the Mayan people were the first civilization to consume chocolate. Cocoa beans have even been found in tombs!

The first European to try the product was Christopher Columbus. During his fourth expedition to America, the Indians treated him to bitter cocoa. The taste amazed him! Later, chocolate spread throughout Europe, and with the advent of sugar, it became even more popular. In this era, it was available only to rich people, but later the poor could buy it too.

National Chocolate Covered Anything Day has a fun idea: cover your favorite food with chocolate! Cherry, strawberry, apricot, banana or even a whole cake – it doesn’t matter. Perhaps you have your own thoughts on this? For example, in 2007, a British company came up with the idea of covering pizza with chocolate!
