It’s World Chocolate Day! – July 7th

World Chocolate Day - 7th JulyChocolate is certainly of the world’s favourite flavours, if not the most loved taste across 7 continents. Often referred to as the magic bean, it definitely deserves to be celebrated. Everyone loves it, and the recipes that come with it are nothing less than amazing!
Officially, since 2009 – July 7th is the most commonly accepted date to celebrate chocolate but there is also National Chocolate Day, on October 28th, Christmas and Valentine’s Day – so chocoholics don’t have to wait a year to indulge and celebrate!
Sadly for some, milk chocolate is not dairy-free, as it contains milk and usually other dairy ingredients as well. If you must avoid milk due to an allergy, lactose intolerance, or as part of a vegan lifestyle, you will need to eliminate milk chocolate.
