Chocolate Is For Lovers: The Best Chocolates in DFW

February is National Chocolate Month and it is no coincidence that it comes in the same month as Valentine’s Day. From the ancient Mayans, who created a drink from cacao beans to the Swiss and Milton Hersey who created the wonderful candy we know today, chocolate is the sweet treat that everyone loves.

Fun Chocolate Facts

  • In 1875, Henri Nestle added condensed milk to solid chocolate, creating the milk chocolate bar.
  • In  Switzerland,  Rudolphe Lindt invented the conch, a machine that rotated and mixed chocolate to a perfectly smooth consistency.
  • By 1907, Milton Hershey’s factory produced more than 33 million kisses per day.
  • During World War II, American soldiers received chocolate bars as part of their rations.
