National Chocolate Month

February 1st, 2014 by Trish Robinson

Ben and Bill's Chocolate Emporium store in Falmouth VIllageNational Chocolate Month is February and it is a time to celebrate for Ghelfi's Candies in Falmouth Villageall of us chocoholics! Pretty much a day does not go by that I don’t have a little bit of chocolate. We are lucky here in Falmouth, Cape Cod that just a short stroll down from The Captain’s Manor Inn on Main Street in Falmouth Village are two great places to satisfy your chocolate cravings.

You may stop in at Ben and Bill’s Chocolate Emporium or Ghelfi’s Candies or like many guests visit and sample both. At Ben and Bill’s many of our guests love the mocha chip ice cream which has the largest pieces of chocolate you can enjoy. A favorite of guests who frequent Ghelfi’s Chocolates are there different flavored salted caramels from milk chocolate to dark or white chocolate and even crème brulee.
You don’t have to wait for Valentine’s Day to search for that special chocolate treat any time this month will do. The healthy benefits of chocolate are being lauded in all sorts of magazines such as Women’s Health, and even the Wall Street Journal had a story.
Chocolate is even being talked about as a superfood. Of course for us chocoholics, National Chocolate Month is not even enough. So if you need a reason to justify why you are eating chocolate why not follow the national chocolate day calendar.
