Good for the Holidays, a Pick me up, or a Healthy Snack

It never fails...a last minute birthday is looming, or perhaps that difficult to buy for friend or family member is causing you indigestion. What is the perfect gift? The photo frame, the New York Times top ten bestseller and the latest ipod has lost it's unique appeal. The one idea I can give you is found in one word; CHOCOLATE.

Chocolates aren't for "just women" anymore. In fact, these delicious delectable have separated themselves into a unique and exquisite offering for others or even yourself!

What are some of the benefits? No doubt, the number one reason people love to receive chocolates is because they taste great. The finer the chocolate and finer ingredients, the finer the taste. Let's face it, convincing someone to try an amaretto chocolate truffle is a cinch! Fine chocolates is not your mother's Snicker bar!

The other benefits? Chocolate is actually a healthy food! The darker the chocolate, the more nutritious for you! Don't like dark chocolate? No worries...fruit and nuts are absolutely delicious drenched in a rich chocolate sauce. Try switching up the selection using items such as strawberries, pineapple, cashews, pecans, walnuts and other fruits and nuts. The sky is the limit and portion control is a must!

Feeling down in the dumps? Go ahead, eat a few chocolates without guilt or worry. One of the ingredients in chocolate affects the dopamine in your brain which is a chemical that makes you feel happy. Everyone can use a small pick me up.
So, whether you are thinking about the Holidays, choosing a a gift, or a special gift for yourself; Choose Chocolate, you'll be glad you did!
