Why We Give Chocolate on Valentines!


Valentine's Day, the celebration of love and affection, is just around the corner, and what better way to express your feelings than with a beautifully adorned chocolate box? In this blog post, we'll explore the fascinating world of Valentine's Day chocolate boxes, unraveling some fun facts and understanding the age-old tradition of giving chocolates on this special day.

The tradition of giving chocolates on Valentine's Day dates back to the 19th century. Richard Cadbury, a British chocolatier, played a significant role in popularising the idea of presenting chocolates as a token of love. In 1861, he introduced the first heart-shaped chocolate box, creating a new tradition that has endured through the years.

Fun Facts about Valentine's Day Chocolate Boxes:

  1. Heart-Shaped Delights: The heart shape, symbolising love and passion, is the most common design for Valentine's Day chocolate boxes. Today, these boxes come in various sizes and styles, adorned with intricate designs and vibrant colours to capture the essence of the occasion.

  2. Choco-Expressions: Different chocolates convey different messages. For example, dark chocolate is associated with deep love, while milk chocolate represents sweetness and tenderness. 

  3. Chocolatier's Craft: Crafting a box of chocolates is an art form. Our chocolatiers carefully select and arrange each piece, creating a delightful sensory experience. From the velvety texture of the chocolate to the luscious fillings, every detail is designed to captivate the recipient.


So why Chocolate?

The question arises: Why chocolate? Beyond its delectable taste, chocolate is believed to have mood-enhancing properties. It contains phenylethylamine, a natural compound that can trigger feelings of happiness and excitement – making it the perfect indulgence for a day dedicated to love and affection.

Here at Cocoa Wilds, we think the act of sharing chocolates fosters a sense of closeness and intimacy. Whether it's breaking off a piece to share or handpicking a favourite flavour for a loved one, the ritual of enjoying chocolate together enhances the bond between partners.
