Do you know that on July 7th every year, the world is supposed to celebrate a wonderful day?
It’s none other than the World Chocolate Day! Thus, can you guess how do people celebrate the day? Of course, it’s by enjoying your favourite chocolate in all its deliciously sinful forms!
Firstly, let’s have a short introduction to this wonderful human creation first. Made from the seeds of a cacao bean, chocolate has been a perennial favourite since long ago. Actually, the cacao plants which produce cacao beans used to be cultivated by the Native Americans.
Today, these plants are cultivated around the equator. Furthermore, chocolate products commonly found these days range from cocoa powder and baking chocolate to dark chocolate and milk chocolate.
Meanwhile, in Malaysia, we’re lucky to have many types of chocolate and chocolate flavoured items to indulge in. Oh, we are not talking about the expensive ones. Our favourites are those that are less than RM20. Moreover, some of these chocolates bring back childhood memories.
Now, have a look at the familiar list. Don’t forget to let us know which is your favourite chocolatey goodness once you are done scrolling!
To begin with here’s the often touted by TV advertisements as one of the most luxurious chocolate products out there.
