National Chocolate Day
Please share with us your favorite kind of chocolate.
(We may have done this before, but since this is one of the "various" National Chocolate Days, let's try it again (smiles).
There are a variety of dates that have been designated as "Chocolate Day" around the world. The most commonly accepted such date is July 7. Various Chocolate Days have been called Local, National or International/World, including conflicting claims.
The U.S. National Confectioners Association lists four primary chocolate holidays on their calendar (Chocolate Day (July 7), two National Chocolate Days (October 28 and December 28), and International Chocolate Day (September 13)), in addition to variants such as National Milk Chocolate Day, National White Chocolate Day, and National Cocoa Day.
International Chocolate Day coincides with the birth date of Milton S. Hershey (September 13, 1857), founder of The Hershey Chocolate Company.

National Chocolate Day is observed annually on October 28. While there are many specific chocolate related holidays throughout the year, National Chocolate Day celebrates all things chocolate. As America’s favorite flavor, chocolate is well deserving of its own day of honor and celebration. (Some sources designate July 7 or December 28 as Chocolate Day or International Chocolate Day.)
