NATIONAL MILK CHOCOLATE DAY

TL 7 28 NATIONAL MILK CHOCOLATE DAY

Did someone say CHOCOLATE???

We’ve all heard about the benefits of dark chocolate, but sometimes you just have to break the rules and have a little milk chocolate.  Today’s the day, chocoholics!  Dig in!

Milk chocolate is different from other chocolates.  It’s got either dry or condensed milk mixed with the cocoa and is used to make candy bars, hot chocolate and other scrumptious (and sinful) desserts.

Yes, we’ve stuck to our diet pretty closely…  so today, enjoy a little piece of milk chocolate.  Why?  Well, if you need a reason, try this one – it will literally make you happier!  Milk chocolate contains a stimulant called theobromine and a compound called anandamide.

An additional stimulant would be caffeine – in the coffee I’ll drink with my chocolate!

Take a look at this poem from Lucinda Berry Hill.  Just before she sent it to me, she commented that she never wrote funny poems until she met me.  LOL!!!  I said, “You’re welcome!”  I love how God helps us sharpen iron in friendships, don’t you?

It’s on my bucket list – I really want to visit there one day!  I’ve heard that it smells like chocolate all the time.  Lucinda tells me it’s especially strong after it rains.  Yeah, she gets to live near there…  lucky ducky!

We won’t talk about what Wichita smells like after it rains…  sigh.

Anyway, today, enjoy milk chocolate your favorite way. It doesn’t have to be with a cup of coffee (but I highly recommend it)  😉  Happy Milk Chocolate Day!
