SEPTEMBER 13th – International Chocolate Day
 
Chocolate, one of the world’s favorite flavors, has been consumed by humans from as far back as 1900 BC, serving as an integral part of the Aztec and Mayan civilizations and culture. Europeans combined it with milk and sugar, and with the Industrial Revolution and rise of mass production, the modern era of chocolate was born. September 13th marks International Chocolate Day. Although most of us don’t need a day dedicated to indulge in the rich, creamy glory that is chocolate, International Chocolate Day gives us just one more reason to consume this delectable confection in copious amounts. 
 
We want to celebrate our international farmers in Ecuador and Peru (the origin of our cacao) that work using sustainable and regenerational farming efforts to bring us the best pure liquid chocolate on the planet! Plus, it’s 100% organic and fair-trade! Visit our website at cholaca.com/regeneration to find out more about the importance of regeneration and the purchase of fair-trade chocolate.
 
 
September 14th at 6:30-8:30PM
