My Top 5 videos on why chocolate is great

If you don’t like to eat chocolate, you’re just plain weird. Good chocolate brings people together, lightens the mood and makes for the perfect gift when you can’t think of anything else to buy. Take it from me, buy your girl a bar of her favourite chocolate and she’ll forget and forgive what it was you did that drove her crazy in the morning and she’ll probably reward you with a ton of big kisses!

Chocolate doesn’t just taste great, it also fills you with euphoria and brings a big smile to your face. Some chocolates, such as dark chocolate also have the necessary ingedients that make you feel drowsy and help you sleep. There is just so much more to chocolate than what meet’s the eye.

In this article, I want to share some great videos with you that will not only be informative, but also introduce you to rich and diverse chocolates from around the world.

Would you have ever guessed that 4.6 million tonnes of cocoa are produced worldwide or that Cote d’ Ivoire would be the largest producer of  cocoa beans in the world! Also, cocoa production has increased almost 4 times since 1961, which would not come as much of a surprise given that the world’s population has also since doubled. At any rate, I hope that this has been informative and interesting to learn for you.
