Gifts for World Chocolate Day
Celebrate World Chocolate Day on the 7th July with Sponge!
When is World Chocolate Day? It’s on the 7th of July! We celebrate everything to do with the wonderful treat that is chocolate, and why wouldn’t we? Chocolate is a favourite treat worldwide; every country uses chocolate in some way shape or form. It’s more versatile than we often associate it with, we’ve even seen some recipes in our time of some using chocolate in savoury dishes!
More traditional uses of chocolate are as a sweet treat, with lots of sweet treats using chocolate as a base. I think it’s safe to say that the majority of us enjoy chocolate treats, so why not use World Chocolate Day as an opportunity to treat yourself or a loved one to some gloriously chocolate goodies. Here are the chocolate treats that are available from Sponge:
