#WorldChocolateDay is upon us! Enjoy your favorite chocolate today - tasty and healthy!

Chocolate – is there a better friend? 

It’s there to celebrate your triumphs, reward your successes and mend your broken, beaten heart. It’s so important to us it even has its own day – World Chocolate Day And - Hallelujah, vegans.
Just because you want to not cut out animal products, doesn’t means that your relationship with chocolate is over too.   

Chocolate and the gym might seem like polar opposites to you. But science has recently proved that it’s a great pre-gym snack.
But only if it’s dark chocolate.
According to this Kingston University study found that cyclists’ consumption of dark chocolate improved their  endurance and they could exercise longer than those who ate white chocolate.
It is believed that the epicatechin in cocoa prompts cells to release extra nitric oxide, which helps with blood flow.
It may have been a while since Easter, but you definitely deserve to treat yourself after staying away from it for so long.

Or if you didn’t, because you know how good it is You didn’t forsake it for lent. So why now?
Finally, and don’t don’t panic, the world is running out of it.. This is really a time you should stop everything. 
Because yes, chocolate is running out.
The world’s cocoa is increasingly in short supply, with regular reports warning that in the near future we’ll be facing a shortage.
If that wasn’t terrifying enough, it’s expected to happen as soon as 2020.
Stock up while you can.
