Each September 13th is celebrated on Chocolate Day to honor the most popular sweet in the world. A perfect occasion to enjoy the “chocolatey” proposals that Buenos Aires has to offer.
This food based on cacao it has been part of our diet for 3,000 years and is considered until today one of the most exquisite delicacies. The sweetest Argentines can go to different parts of the city to taste a chocolate dessert in his day.
The date chosen to honor this food is due to the birth of two people who helped spread the benefits of cocoa: Roald Dahl, known for being the author of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” and Milton Hershey, founder of the largest chocolate factory in USA.
The origin of this food goes back to the history of cocoa. Three millennia ago the indigenous people of Central America they used the pulp of the cocoa pods to produce a beer-like beverage. Thanks to this, the seeds that were available began to be used for the production of other foods. From that moment to the present, the consumption of chocolate was always on the rise. No wonder, who could resist its taste?
Where to celebrate?
