Chocolate goes well with almost everything, but there is one chocolate pairing that is classic – chocolate and mint. So, it is only fair that the United States National Confectioners Association has declared February 19 to be Chocolate Mint Day in honor of this hugely popular flavor pairing.
Chocolate Every Day
Chocolate is a very popular theme for a fun holiday. Other chocolate flavored holidays are Chocolate Pudding Day, Milk Chocolate Day, Chocolate Pecan Pie Day, Chocolate Milkshake Day , Chocolate Cupcake Day, Chocolate Covered Anything Day and Chocolate Cake Day.
How to Celebrate?
- Introduce chocolate and mint pairings in each of your meals.
- Have a chocolate mint latte for your morning cup of coffee, or add chocolate chips and some mint to your cereal.
- Replace your main course with a big slice (or two) of chocolate mint cake, and follow it with chocolate mint ice cream.
