Guess what time of year it is? Yep, Valentine’s Day is sneaking up in us again. You know that day we all pretend to roll our eyes at it but secretly we mark it with the biggest red heart in our calendars! It's not all about the soppy cards or flowers – thank goodness - because let’s be real, chocolate is Valentine’s Day!
A time of love, tenderness, and... chocolate. But beyond the commerciality of the day, there lies a history rich with tradition and, fortunately for you, a deep-rooted connection to chocolate.
A Little Chocolate History Lesson
Once upon a time, way before your dating app swipe right disasters, chocolate was the ultimate hook up. The Mayans started it, the Aztecs got in on the action (notably Emperor Montezuma, believed cocoa beans fuelled passion), and those fancy European royals couldn’t get enough of the stuff. They would present chocolate with amber to court their loved ones, a tradition that eventually found its way to the masses. And so, the tradition of gifting chocolate was born, symbolising luxury, desire, and love.
Science even says chocolate is like a love potion 'food of the gods.' It pops the same feel-good fireworks in your brain mimicking the euphoria of being in love.
