Summer’s a brave choice to host World Chocolate Day at least in countries where the weather is nice and the chocolate is particularly prone to melting. British chocolate lovers like ourselves can probably breathe a sigh of relief as we gorge ourselves stupid, even if we’re wearing a T-shirt and sitting outside to make the most of the 13C weather we’ve come to expect from early July.
The event is dedicated to all things cocoa-based, and it’s certainly not time to discriminate. Indulge yourself, share with others, and whatever you do this World Chocolate Day, don’t buy yourself an 85% dark chocolate and sea salt bar solely as a tool to look down on those who prefer white chocolate, because dark chocolate is real chocolate, unlike that sweet filth other people eat. Don’t be that person. No-one likes that person.
