If you are asked what is your favorite holiday, what will be your answer? Most likely the answer will be Birthday or New Year. Did you know that there is officially such a holiday as World Chocolate Day? If not, let’s find out what kind of holiday it is and how to celebrate it in Kyiv.
Every year on July 7 World Chocolate Day is celebrated in Western Europe. The idea to „give” chocolate its day first appeared in France in 1995. Chocolate Day quickly gained popularity and was supported in Germany, Italy, Switzerland and, in particular, in Ukraine. On this day, various festivals and events dedicated to this wonderful product are held.
The Aztecs were the first to learn how to make chocolate, calling it “food of the gods.” The Spanish conquistadors christened the delicacies “black gold” and ate them to strengthen endurance. In the Middle Ages, chocolate consumption in Europe was available only to aristocrats.
We have prepared for you several places where you can celebrate this day with pleasure and delight yourself with delicious and high-quality chocolate.

Science has established the fact that chocolate contains elements that promote both relaxation and psychological recovery. Dark chocolate promotes the release of endorphins – the so-called hormones of happiness, which affect the pleasure centers, improving mood and maintaining body tone.
