Be the season, the thought of chocolate  itself makes us lick our lips in the sweetest day of the year. World Chocolate Day  - sometimes called International Chocolate Day is celebrated annually on July 7.  

As some chocolate lovers plan to celebrate Chocolate Week in style, we would like to share some interesting facts about chocolate. Chocolate is made from the fruit of cocoa trees - a native to Central and South America. The beans are called pods containing around 40 cocoa beans, which are dried and roasted to create cocoa beans. In ancient times, chocolate was considered as the "food of the gods." Historians have found that chocolate was produced by pre-Olmec cultures in 1900 BC . The Mesoamericans who first cultivated cocoa plants, fermented, roasted and grounded the cocoa beans into a paste mixed with water, vanilla, honey, chili peppers and other spices to frothy chocolate drink.  

Chocolate arrived in Florida on a Spanish ship in 1641 . America opened its first chocolate house in Boston in 1682 and by 1773 cocoa beans were a major American colony import. Even though cocoa beans were discovered in America, about three quarters of the world's cocoa is produced in Africa. The main cocoa-producing country was the Ivory Coast in 2016-2017, followed by Ghana and Indonesia. The Ivory Coast was also reported as one of the main cocoa beans processors in that year, second only to the Netherlands.

In 1847, the British chocolate company JS Fry & Sons  created the first solid edible chocolate bar from cocoa butter, cocoa powder and sugar. Family-owned companies such as Cadbury, Mars and Hershey in the late 1800s and early 1900s. In  2015-2016, about 7.3 million tons  of retail chocolate confectionery was consumed worldwide, with 7.7 million tons by 2018/2019. Global retail sales reached 101 billion US dollars in 2015, with the US accounting for the largest portion of chocolate confectionary sales worldwide. According to industry experts, Switzerland had the highest chocolate confectionery consumption per person of any other country. On an average, Swiss citizen consumed about 8.8 kilograms   of chocolate in 2017, with the United States coming in at the nineteenth position at 4.4 kilograms per person.
