Be chocolate literate on World Chocolate Day

[I will do a more serious post later, but...] Today is World Chocolate Day, according to lots of news sites. This is an example of when information literacy becomes a bit irrelevant. A quick google search reveals that today is not to be confused with International Chocolate day, which is in September. It is not evident who started the idea of World Chocolate Day, or what keeps it going other than manufacturers' desire to sell chocolate and news media's knowledge that pictures of chocolate attract clicks. But who cares? As the Wikipedia article notes "Celebration of the day includes the consumption of chocolate". Enough said. The more excuses to eat chocolate, the better. Pictured is the wrapper of some chocolate I just ate. And I will remind readers of my earlier blog post the Seven Pillars of Chocolate Literacy: develop those chocolate lifeskills!
