National Choose Your Chocolate Day

National Choose Your Chocolate Day is an annual American celebration dedicated to chocolate products. Celebrated on September 16th. Sweets, cakes, large cakes, chocolate bars or cocoa cookies – the choice is huge. See’s Candies decided to create such a holiday in honor of its centenary and the birthday of the great chocolatier Mary C.


Chocolate has been known to mankind since antiquity. Evidence of him goes back to the native American tribes – the Aztecs. They crushed cocoa beans and mixed them with water. Often used for ceremonies. Chocolate was believed to have healing properties.

The spread of chocolate in Europe fell on the 16th century. Cocoa powder was mixed with milk and sugar was added. Industrial production did not begin until three centuries later, when a mechanical press was invented in 1828, allowing you to easily turn roasted cocoa beans into powder.

The popularization of chocolate in the United States was due to Mary C, who worked as a confectioner. Until the age of 65, she cooked exclusively for her family, and then moved to Los Angeles. Its products have been highly acclaimed by customers. By 1925, many See’s Candies shops were established, selling chocolates made in the best Mary tradition.

A modern confectionery company strictly follows the established quality standards. The production of sweets does not use preservatives and ingredients of artificial origin.

Interesting facts
