    With Chocolate Day upon us, let us celebrate the world’s favourite treat: chocolate! Kids and adults alike love it for its mood-boosting properties, which can help to battle the blues. So let’s make this Chocolate Day a special one!

    12 April marks a very sweet and tempting holiday – Chocolate Day. Chocolate is not only delicious but also healthy – there is probably no human being who does not like to eat it. 

    In Poland, the most popular type of chocolate is milk chocolate, which contains milk powder. However, dark chocolate is the healthiest option, according to experts. A single cube of dark chocolate contains the lowest amount of calories and can prove beneficial to the heart. Research suggests that consuming up to 7 grams of dark chocolate daily can help protect the circulatory system.

    Recent studies suggest that dark chocolate can have a positive effect on health. It is said to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and help regulate blood pressure. Dark chocolate is also a good source of antioxidants and can help protect against cancer and other diseases.

    It also contains cocoa butter, which is rich in flavonoids, as well as more than 70% cocoa pulp, with a small amount of sugar. In contrast, white chocolate contains little cocoa powder, with the best varieties containing only 33% cocoa butter. With these potential health benefits, it appears that dark chocolate could be a delicious way to stay healthy.

    According to the data presented in the ‘World and Polish chocolate market’ report and published by Polish Press Agency, the statistical Pole ate 5.6 kg of chocolate sweets in 2021. This is the fourth result after Germany, the UK and Bulgaria. Poland maintains its 4th place among the world’s largest chocolate esports players.

    The celebration of Chocolate Day on 12 April is a typical Polish holiday, as the calendar also includes World Chocolate Day, which falls on 7 July.
