Why do we give chocolate for Valentine's Day?
Chocolate used to be the treat of choice among wealthy European nobility, as it was prized for its exotic luxury. Starting in about the 14th century, Valentine’s Day came to be a celebration of love, thanks in large part to the work of the poet Chaucer. The combination of the two only seems natural: when you love someone and want to wow them, giving them classy Valentine’s Day gifts

, chocolate is among the most common gift to give on February 14th. The tradition continues to live on, which is great, because we love chocolate!
