Life just hasn’t been the same since Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Sweet tooths all over the world rejoiced and wept, knowing they could never visit that glorious factory. If you’re on the fence, you need to see the reasons why you need MORE chocolate in your life.

It comes in a variety of flavours

Plain. Strawberry. Peppermint. Honeycomb. Fruit & Nut. Caramel. The list goes on but I had to stop because I was craving them all. Sometimes you feel like a bit more of a kick and a flavour can be the one to tide you over. Plus, life’s a little more fun that way, right? Heck, just get ALL THE FLAVOURS! (And share them with me.)

It’s there for you when you’re sad

When you’ve had a bad day, your hormones are running wild and you feel like you can’t go on, chocolate has your back. It’s delicious, it soothes the soul and it actually has the happy hormones serotonin and dopamine. So you know you’re in good hands.

It’s the best gift to give and receive

Someone giving me chocolate is enough for me to commit my life to them, let’s be real. And giving someone else chocolate makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside… partly because you’re hoping that they’ll offer you some. When you don’t know what to give someone and you’re in strife, reach for the chocolate.

It comes in bulk

A box of Haigh’s chocolates and truffles goes down a treat… and maybe little too quickly. Hey, you still have eight more chocolates to go! Boxed is better. It means there’s more to love.

You can choose between white, milk and dark

If you prefer the healthier option, dark chocolate is the one for you! Some people like a plot twist and they reach for white chocolate (can we just take a moment to appreciate Milkybars, please?). If you’re like me, milk chocolate is the love of your life.

Some of them entice you with the cute design

Frog designs, bilbies, bears, heart-shaped and more! When chocolate comes in a super-cute design, it’s game over. They’re automatically more appealing and you feel like you need them in your life instantly. It’s the worst (ahem, the best) when Easter rolls around and you’re left to face all of the super-cute eggs. The only solution is to buy them all. For yourself.

You can cook with it

Oh, heavens. Baking with chocolate is next-level. Biscuits, cake, chocolate slice, brownies, muffins and so much more. If you can get through it without devouring all the chocolate, you’ll be left with delicious baked goods, which is a blessing for the family and the office! Don’t even get me started on desserts.

You can drink it

Chocolate in drink form is almost as good as dessert! When you’re craving chocolate and don’t have any blocks in the house, why not make a delicious hot chocolate, iced chocolate or chocolate milk? It gives you the kick and flavour you crave if you don’t want to run to your local to grab a family block for yourself.

It’s delicious. Duh.

This one is self-explanatory. Some say chocolate comes from cocoa beans. That is wrong; chocolate comes from heaven. Don’t believe me? Try it for yourself!
