You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy chocolate, and that’s kinda the same thing.Anonymous
In the long history of the workplace, there was only one thing that ever really made the afternoons go faster and the day seems a little easier, and that’s chocolate. A shame that the Europeans had to wait until late into the 17th Century to discover it, they suffered all that time without chocolate to ease the day. Thankfully that’s no longer a concern. Office Chocolate Day is your opportunity to grab a bar of chocolate, or an entire tray, and enjoy it while you’re at the office!
History of Office Chocolate Day
The history of Office Chocolate Day is as old as Chocolate itself if you use a very loose definition of the word ‘Office.’ The glory of Office Chocolate Day is it enables you to indulge in an uplifting creamy treat that can take the drudgery out of the day and leave you with a new burst of energy and a touch of enthusiasm to get you through the day. It’s no secret that chocolate has been proven to lift moods and alleviate stress, so it makes sense to have it around the office, doesn’t it?
There’s no end to the degree of creativity you can use when you decide to indulge in chocolate on Office Chocolate Day either! There are so many different places you can find chocolate these days, from protein bars to coffee, chocolate cake too rich hot cocoa, you can indulge all day without repeating a treat. By the end of it, you may find yourself needing to hit the gym a little harder, but you won’t regret having eaten a single bite when you see how much easier it makes getting through the day.
