International Chocolate Day – 13th September

I must admit, personally, I do not need to wait for a specific day in order to demolish a Kit Kat or 4. However, for those with a more abstemious nature, today is a day where I urge you to go forth and indulge. International Chocolate Day is a celebration introduced by The U.S. National Confectioners Association, intended to land annually on the 13th of September. This day was chosen as it is the birthday of Milton S. Hershey, an American confectioner, philanthropist, and founder of The Hershey Chocolate Company. Here’s to Hershey!
