Whether you prefer creamy milk chocolate or semi-sweet dark chocolate, it is impossible to deny that this favorite flavor is quite addicting. The average American enjoys 12 lbs. of chocolate a year, for a total 18 percent of the world’s supply. But we aren’t even the world leader when it comes to chocolate consumption. That title goes to the Swiss, who indulge in an average of 20 lbs. each per year.
In celebration of our love of all things chocolate – solid chocolate, chocolate covered or chocolate dipped – we at Hilliards Chocolates have put together a list of our three favorite chocolate themed quotes and the delectable confections that you can enjoy with them.
“Chocolate is health food for the soul.” – Miranda Gray
Miranda Gray was absolutely right in saying that chocolate is good for the soul, but it can be good for the body too.
Fruits like apricots, oranges, peaches and pears are absolutely delicious when dipped in dark chocolate. And here at Hilliards we even sell Antioxidant Ambrosia. Handmade from high cocoa content dark chocolate and topped with sunflower seeds, pepitas, glazed walnuts and raspberry cranberries, this delicious snack gives you a boost of antioxidants that makes it just as good for the body as it is for the soul!
“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.” – Charles M. Shulz
The same man who brought us the much-loved “Peanuts” comic strip was just as knowledgeable about chocolate as he was when it came to creating heartfelt, memorable characters. And what better chocolate confection to represent this lovely quote than our Peanut Clusters? Whether your favorite is milk or dark chocolate, these fresh cooked peanut cups coated in chocolate are perfect for everyday enjoyment and special occasions alike.
“There is nothing better than a friend, unless it is a friend with chocolate.” – Charles Dickens
Charles Dickens had it right; the only thing that makes chocolate better is sharing its goodness with a friend. If you are looking for a gourmet chocolate treat to share, we recommend our chocolate assortments. Available in a variety of sizes and stuffed full with all of our most popular soft, chewy and crunchy centered bite-size chocolates, assortments are the perfect way to share your favorite candies with friends!
