Three Ways We’re Celebrating American Chocolate Week

With all the St. Patrick’s day hype and spring fever frenzy sweeping the nation, it’s easy to overlook that this week is American Chocolate Week! However, we’re here to remind you of that delicious fact and share with you how we plan to celebrate.

 

 

Hershey’s Dark Chocolate is one of our favorites!

 

 

1. Learning the health benefits associated with chocolate. It’s true, chocolate, especially dark chocolate, isn’t all bad! According to Health Diaries online, chocolate is high in antioxidants and is shown to help lower both blood pressure and cholesterol. It also contains serotonin and stimulates endorphins – both of which act as natural anti-depressants.Yum!

2. DIY Chocolate facial masks! Chocolate does more than just taste good, it works wonders for your skin. Cocoa powder contains powerful antioxidants that help protect skin and make it soft. We love this Coffee and Cocoa facial mask from About!

3. Last but not least…. Don’t worry, we didn’t forget the best way to celebrate American Chocolate Week – eating chocolate. Whether you prefer plain chocolate, chocolate-covered pretzels, or a chocolate milkshake, feel free to indulge for the week!
