International Chocolate Day Date in the current year: September 13, 2016

International Chocolate Day International Chocolate Day is an unofficial holiday, dedicated to the sweetest and tastiest dainty in the world – chocolate. This day is celebrated on September 13, since it's birthday of Milton S. Hershey, an American confectioner and founder of worldwide known company The Hershey Chocolate Company.

Chocolate is made from the beans of cacao tree. The beans are dried, cleaned and roasted, then the shell is removed to produce the nibs, that are later grounded to cocoa mass, that is a pure chocolate in rough form. This mass is liquefied and then processed in cocoa solids and cocoa butter. They both are used for production of chocolate.

Chocolate is very popular around the world, especially among women. Chocolate is also the most popular flavor for different types of desserts, like chocolate chip cookies, chocolate milk and chocolate ice cream.

The largest producer of chocolate is not South America, where it originated, but a small country of Côte d'Ivoire in Africa. And the best chocolate is produced in Switzerland, Belgium, France, Spain, the USA, Austria and Germany.
