A chocolate sourcing lesson, in time for Valentine’s Day
February 1, 2013
As Valentine’s Day draws near, thoughts turn to the romantic gestures of presenting a gift of chocolates to a loved one. ValentinesDay.org reports more than a billion dollars worth of chocolates are sold in the U.S. each year for gifts related to the holiday, while an article last year by Delish put the number closer to $400 million.
Any way you look at it, February is a big time for the treat and it also just happens to be National Chocolate Month.
