Here are some of the things that we learned about chocolate that we think are fun facts:
- One cacao pod has enough seeds to make seven milk chocolate bars!(Not too much cacao eh?)
- A single chocolate chip has enough energy for a human to walk one hundred and fifty feet.
- Cacao is said to be a vegetable, but then it is said to fit in the fruit category!
- An average chocolate-loving American eats and estimated total of 10-12 pounds each year,
- An average chocolate-loving Swiss eats 21 pounds!
- If you (happily) stuff down 875,000 chocolate chips you could walk around the world with all of the energy it gives you! If your legs could take it!
- Out of all the men and women who eat chocolate there are twice as many women who eat and crave the sweet snack.
- The people in Chocolate Factories use twenty percent of the peanuts in the world and forty percent of the world’s almonds.
