Today is one of the most important days of the year around the world: it’s chocolate day!
Chocolate originated in the prehispanic period, when the Aztecs, Mayans, and other Mesoamerican cultures consumed it as a ceremonial drink. Later on, with the arrival of the Europeans, milk became a main ingredient in its production and resulted in the wide variety of chocolate kinds we have today.
But apart from delicious, chocolate benefits your body in many different ways. It contains a huge amount of antioxidants to protect your health, caffeine that lifts your energy, and Phenylethylamine that acts as an anti-depressant and improves your mood.
So, are you ready to have your chocolate treat of the day? ORGANO™ has three delicious products that will help you celebrate Chocolate Day with us. Today, we’ll give you some ideas on how to turn your Gourmet Hot Cocoa, Cafe Mocha, and OGX FENIX™ Rich Chocolate into the perfect summer treats to enjoy for the rest of the season!
