October 28th: National Chocolate Day

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at TCNJ chapter.

I could eat chocolate at any time of day; it’s pretty much a staple in my life. There isn’t a type of chocolate that I don’t like: milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate, you name it.  I’ve never understood how someone can despise chocolate, and if you’re that person, we might not get along. In my opinion, it’s rather fitting that National Chocolate Day falls on October 28th, right around Halloween, because I’m definitely spending this weekend picking on candy (chocolate especially, of course).   Chocolate is the perfect cure for anything. Whether you’re experiencing heartbreak, getting over a low test grade, or having a bad day, I can pretty much guarantee that chocolate will cheer you up. In honor of this very important holiday, here are seven chocolate treats you can indulge to celebrate.

1.Chocolate bar

Simple, classic, but delicious every time nevertheless.

2.Chocolate mousse

Whenever I look at a dessert menu at restaurants, I always search the page for this item, and if they have it, let’s just say I’m a very happy camper.

3.Chocolate brownies

Otherwise known as a chocolate lover’s Heaven.

  1. Chocolate ice cream   

I’ve never tried an ice cream flavor that I didn’t like, but at the end of the day, chocolate will always have my heart.

You can never go wrong with a chocolate chip cookie.

This is a great choice if you’re in a rush. It’s quick, easy, and most importantly, delicious.

I’m not a huge fan of cake, but for some reason, chocolate cupcakes get me every time.

National Chocolate Day might only come once a year, but that doesn’t mean you should ever give up these delectable chocolate desserts. You deserve to treat yourself.
