October 28th Is National Chocolate Day

National Chocolate Day is observed annually on October 28.  While there are many specific chocolate related holidays throughout the year, National Chocolate Day celebrates all things chocolate.  As America’s favorite flavor, chocolate is well deserving of it’s own day of honor and celebration. 

Canada seems to be having a very special burger on National Chocolate Day

It seems that US peanut butter is jealous that they don't live in Canada. 

So, because the world is great, The Works Gourmet Burger Bistro is introducing a confection worthy of clogging all your arteries just in time for National Chocolate Day.

The Canadian burger chain introduced us to the burger called the "Reese PBC" last week and it's been making us salivate ever since.

This burger is basically a party with its Reese Peanut Butter Cups, beef patty, crispy onion strings, and strips of smoked bacon. It's the perfect marriage of savory and sweet.

Now, we know what you're thinking: That Sounds Amazing! (If you're not thinking that, well, you probably need to broaden your horizons. Also, isn't it shocking that this wasn't made in America?!)

Chocolate comes from the seed of the tropical Theobroma cacao tree.  Cacao, which has been cultivated for at least three millennia, is grown in Mexico, Central America and Northern South America.  The earliest known documentation of using cacao seeds is from around 1100 BC.  The cacao tree seeds have a very intense, bitter taste that must be fermented to develop the flavor.

Once the seeds have been fermented, the beans are dried, cleaned and roasted.  After roasting, the shell is removed to produce cacao nibs.  The cacao nibs are then ground into cocoa mass, which is pure chocolate in rough form.   The cocoa mass is usually liquefied then molded with or without other ingredients. At this point of the process it is called chocolate liquor.  The chocolate liquor may then be processed into two components: cocoa solids and cocoa butter.

Some other sources designate July 7, September 15 or December 28 as “Chocolate Day” or “International Chocolate Day” That seems OK as you can’t have too many days for Chocolate.
