How did Chocolate become the perfect Valentine’s Day gift?

January 16, 2018

For all you lovers out there (especially guys), now is the time to get prepared for that great day of love, Valentine’s Day.  Did you know that the roots of Valentine’s Day can be traced back to Ancient Rome which fell in the year 455? Gifting chocolate and other sweets on this lover’s day is more of a recent development that flourished in America in the late 1800s. Caramel maker Milton Hershey began to cover his caramel treats with sweet chocolate in the year 1894 and soon started mass production of his now famous and affordable tear-dropped shaped chocolates. The tradition of giving chocolate in America on Valentine’s Day continues to be a highlight of the month of February and Bruges Chocolaterie has great gifts available to make your Valentine’s Day special.
