The love for chocolates
Everyone loves chocolates, be it children or adults as it is an undeniable fact that nobody can resist the bittersweet taste and alluring aroma of Chocolates. Chocolates are the best way to cheer someone up or to bring happiness to someone, as that bar of chocolate or just a simple bite is packed with sweetness and gives a short burst of much needed energy to anyone who takes a munch out of a dark sugary chocolate.
How are chocolates brought to life?
Chocolates are made by using kernels of cocoa seeds which have been crushed and roasted, but this is just the start and it’s a long process to finally create edible chocolate. Originally the seeds are bitter but several stages and processes such as fermentation and several other procedures cause the chocolate to come in existence in all its glory. Chocolates have their origins in Mesoamerica, and spread to Europe in later centuries and has now spread around the globe and now there are immensely high demands for chocolate.
The power of chocolate
Chocolate itself is a treat to eat and is like eating happiness instead of living it, it can help anyone to lower their stress and anxiety and can be helpful in calming someone’s nerves when they are doing something challenging or doing something for the first time for example a sport such as horse-riding or basketball. Chocolates also have an added benefit that when it is eaten the endorphins in the brain are released some of which are dopamine, oxytocin and serotonin and they are those chemicals which cause our happiness and other emotions connected closely with it.
Good for your heart
An average amount of chocolate is good for the health of the heart as well as it helps in lowering blood pressure. It is also said that chocolate can reduce the chances of a disease of the heart and chocolate simultaneously can help lower depression and alleviate other types of stress.
Chocolate as a flavor
The best part about chocolate is its taste which is certainly out of this world hence, Chocolate is so extraordinarily popular that it has become a flavor for other dishes, and it’s very common for chocolate to be someone’s favorite flavor for delicacies such as cakes, doughnuts, ice creams, muffins, cupcakes, and so much more. Chocolate is not only used as a flavor but it is also used as frosting or as topping by using chocolate chip cookies or crushing chocolate and sprinkling all over some sweet dish such as a cake or a custard, and there are multiple other uses of chocolate, and it is due to its otherworldly sugary taste and popularity.
Impact of chocolate on literature
Chocolate has such of an influence throughout the world that its usage is also signified in the fantasy book of Harry Potter. Chocolates in the book are given to those who are able to survive the attack of a creature called dementors (they take away all the positive emotion, and feed on hopelessness) who can take away the soul of a victim if not repelled. So thus the individual who survived the attack of dementors is given chocolate to help them to cope with their situation and to bring them back from the brink of depression and grief. Through this example the importance of chocolates is emphasized and its impact on culture can be understood.

Mainly and most commonly chocolates are available in three types which are dark, milk and white chocolate. Nowadays chocolates are so popular that now even chocolate bars have different flavors, for example nuts, caramel, coconut and creams filled inside the bars
