If you know someone who doesn’t like chocolate-don’t trust them! Just kidding, but there are many people who can’t imagine life without it. Who could have imagined such deliciousness could come out of such an awkward looking giant pod on a tree? As a chocolate lover I’m just thankful to the person who added sugar to the original recipe.
There is a vast range of chocolate related gifts that can be given that don’t include actual chocolate. Even the most obsessed chocolate lover needs a break from eating it.
