In any given year, women make up 75% of chocolate buyers—perhaps because chocolate is known to help reduce feelings of stress and therefore increase happiness. But narrow the time frame to just the week before Valentine’s Day, and it’s men who buy the most.
But why is chocolate the go-to gift for this romantic occasion?
Researchers have long suspected that some chemicals found in chocolate link with neurotransmitters in the brain to trigger feelings of happiness and sexual arousal. Chocolate, therefore, came to be considered an aphrodisiac, the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day—which was originally meant for lovers, even though we now use the holiday to honor everyone we love in our lives.
The Chocolove bar in your spring Yuzen box contains slightly chewy cherries, crunchy almonds, and 55% cocoa. As you enjoy it, the combination of tastes and textures blends together to enhance the flavor profile. The experience gradually becomes more intense—just like a new love that grows into a solid (but still exciting) lifetime bond.
All of Chocolove’s ingredients are sourced through ethically and socially responsible means, so not only is their chocolate delicious, you can feel good about eating it.
