Did you know that the sweetest day of the year is actually October 28 and not February 14? That’s right, Oct. 28 is National Chocolate Day! Like the kid in the movie “Grown Ups” said, “I wanna get chocolate wasted!”
So, where do you go for delicious chocolate treats?
What could be better than tasting all sorts of different chocolates from around the world, as well as learning to make chocolate treats in the process? At Yelibelly Chocolates you can take a chocolate class with Chief Chocolate Officer Yeli Marshall. At the end of the class, guess what. You get to take all that chocolate home!

Of course, if you need a tasty chocolate beverage stop by Dunn Brothers on Belt Line just east of Marsh. Try their Chocolate Steamed Nirvana, “Our Infinite Black Cold Press Coffee steamed with half-and-half and finished with chocolate syrup and chocolate sauce.” Does that sound delicious or what? If you are looking that suits the Fall season a little better, try their Hot Chocolate. www.dunnbrothers.com
