Finally, a made-up holiday I can appreciate. Hint: CHOCOLATE.

Chocobunnies from VosgesGuess what, mamas? It’s American Chocolate Week! Or at least the end of it. The way we see it, you just have to suck it up and do your patriotic duty by gorging on chocolate, right?

If you love chocolate as much as we do, here are some of our favorite picks from the past for every occasion. Because we’re all about helping you celebrate the very important holidays of this world.
[don't miss a deeeeelicious giveaway after the jump!]


Crio Bru


For moms who want cocoa without the calories
: Crio Bru
This “drink of the gods” brews up in your coffeemaker and will blow you away with taste, smell, and an antioxidant punch. It’s one of our favorite recent picks–and a reader favorite too.





Divvies does allergen-free chocolate
For kids with allergies: Divvies
We’ve
long been fans of this dairy-free, nut-free, sometimes gluten-free
treat mecca run by parents with an allergic kid themselves. Right in
time for Easter, their allergy-free bunnies are now available for
cruelty-free munching.



Vosges truffles





For chocolate-loving foodies
: Vosges
Whether
you want a delicious toffee bunny (shown at top), need some kosher
chocolate-covered Matzo, or even a chocolate-and-bacon specialty pancake
mix, Vosges is the place to get it. And their gourmet truffles? Curry
powder and paprika were never put to such good use.



Make Your Own Chocolate Kit
For Do-It-Yourselfers: The Make Your Own Chocolate Kit
It’s
like an entire day at the museum. And bakery. Learn about geography,
economics, history, and ethnobotany, followed by a tasting session.
Smart way to justify eating chocolate with your kids.







Fine & Raw

For the socially conscious and eco-minded
: Fine & Raw
Our
writers were bowled over by this amazing chocolate, hand-made in
Brooklyn from fair-trade cocoa then crafted to preserve as much health
and deliciousness as possible. It’s not your average movie-theater
chocolate bar.



If you want to learn more about the fabulous, antioxidant-filled treat that is chocolate, check out the new The Story of Chocolate website.
With facts, pictures, and videos, it’s actually pretty entertaining–
plus, it’s brought to you by the Chocolate Council of the National
Confectioners Association, which sounds like something Willy Wonka
might have made up. I started watching the video on how chocolate is
made, and my preschooler clung to my side, fascinated that the inside of
a cacao pod actually looks kinda like something you’d never eat. And yet…

Ahhh. -Delilah


Congratulations to Amanda V for winning a humongous chocolate gift pack, courtesy of the Chocolate Council of the National
Confectioners Association. Yum!

    Yikes! What a prize! I might faint if I won! :) But only in the best kind of way…
    I love chocolate in (almost) all its forms, and I have for as long as I can remember. In college, I used to swoon as I drove through Hershey, PA on the way to class every day. The whole town smells like warm chocolate! While I do like chocolate in cakes, and ice cream, and just about anything else, my favorite way chocolate is a simple, super-dark bar of straight up chocolate (preferably fair-trade, and with a dry red wine.)

    If I’m pairing the flavor of dark chocolate with anything, I’d say my favorite complement is bitter orange.

    We lived in Geneva Switz for 4 years when I was a child. Chocolate (and snow skiing) just became part of my DNA because of this experience. I have many favorites so this is tough but if I was left on an island with some chocolate it would have to be the milk caramel chews found in this assortment: https://www.lindtusa.com/product-exec/product_id/263/category_id/20/nm/Lindt_Classics_4_4_oz_

    It is just insanely good. I mean it is worth buying the whole box for just these chews.

    Lake Champlain and Kinder would be in 2nd and 3rd position.

Special mention goes to dark chocolate covered espresso beans as well as the Smitten Kitchen’s version of homemade oreos (http://smittenkitchen.com/2007/05/my-kingdom-for-a-glass-of-milk/), made with coconut oil instead of shortening. Um, did I mention that chocolate is one of my favorite foods? no?

The homemade kind with practically nothing more than egg, sugar & chocolate in it :) The warm, gooey, chocolatey center with just a little bite of cake is divine!

    The owner makes two types of chocolates: antique poured molds (think Victorian Santas, Easter Bunnies, and wedding figures, in solid chocolate), and dried fruit or nuts covered in chocolate. Dried orange slices covered in dark chocolate are to die for.

    He also reminds me — and everyone — of the Seinfeld Soup Nazi. He has a posted list of rules, like no fur coats, no cell phones ringing in the store, and if you violate one, he kicks you out. He also uses one of those antique phones with the separate cone for your ear and where you talk. Really.

    my favorite chocolate experience is a tie between a white chocolate caramel apple with cinnamon sugar because it is unbelievably good, and cadbury creme eggs because it reminds me of happy times at home and is just delicious and they tease you by only having them around in the spring.

    My favorite would have to be chocolate-peanut butter cup. I have found delicious ones hand crafted at a local confectionary store, offered in both milk and dark chocolate….YUM!

    I have to admit I have a weakness for Voseges chocolate! Yum! But I have also been known to grab a cadbury egg around this time as well as swipe a godiva truffle! Yum!

    My favorite chocolate treat is the original Hersheys bar. It is just the right size, not too thick and has a delicious taste. Budget wise, it is an easy choice.

    My favorite kind of chocolate is dark chocolate of any kind and my favorite treat are York Peppermint Patties. The combination of dark chocolate and mint is my favorite!

    There are very few chocolates I don’t like, but I’d have to say kinder eggs are my favorite. I was a military brat in Germany and grew up loving them, and was pretty heartbroken when I found out they’re banned from the US. More incentive to travel, I guess!

    My favorite chocolate treat of all times is a dessert call “Chocolate Mousse for two” at Cedric’s Tavern in Asheville, NC. A layer of chocolate brownie…topped with a layer of chocolate mousse…topped with a layer of creme brulee’…topped off with raspberries and caramel sauce. WHAT?!?!?! slap yo’ mama!

    Hm, is there really bad chocolate? And why should I choose just one? :) Godiva’s white chocolate oysters with hazelnut praline are my all time favorite…

    I recently had an amazing chocolate dessert from Payard; the Louvre. It was this fabulous semi-circular creation with dark chocolate on the outside and hazelnut filling. I can’t really explain exactly why, but it was the most amazing thing I may have ever eaten! Creamy, rich, elegantly presented, but not too heavy or overpowering. It was simply perfect!

    My favorite chocolate treat of all time is my grandmother’s pb balls that she dipped in chocolate. I love them and I now make them for my family since she has passed away. It brings back memories of my childhood and her making these for us.

    My most favorite chocolate of all time is (was) the Perugina banana chocolate candy. I believe it’s been discontinued but I promise, every year when my dad gave my mom a box of Perugina chocolate for Valentine’s Day my favorite part was when she let me have one (just one!) of the banana ones…they were the tastiest chocolates ever!

    My favorite chocolate is See’s chocolate covered caramels. Delicious! I discovered them just recently and they are decadent. They were so yummy, I hated to eat the last one!

    How can I possibly choose just one favorite chocolate? At this time of year, though, my fave is the Cadbury creme egg, probably just because it’s only available for a few short weeks…

    Oh it’s so hard to choose. I have a few faves, for sure. Despite that it’s not organic, one of my all-time favorite chocolate companies is See’s. I grew up (mostly) in California, and we used to go to the mall and try their samples, and get their marshmallow Christmas trees every single year. I miss the icing they used to put on them though – all growing up my favorite part was the hard sugar decorations on the outside of the tree. ;)

    Currently my favorite single chocolate treat though is this incredible fudge bar thing at our local coffee shop. It is so rich and smooth and thick and covered in a rich chocolate ganache with chocolate shavings. It’s incredible.

    My favorite would have to be truffles from the many shops I stopped at in Belgium. Bought a bunch as gifts, but they never made it back to the US. :)
