Chat GPT Takes the Fun Out of International Chocolate Day
It’s official. Today is the sweetest day of the year. September 13th is International Chocolate Day. I asked ChatGBT about today, but of course AI made it a bummer by stating what’s terrible about chocolate, even though I never asked for the lecture.
While chocolate is undoubtedly a delightful treat, it is essential to remember that excessive consumption can have negative consequences. Chocolate is high in calories, sugar, and fat, which can contribute to weight gain, tooth decay, and other health issues if consumed in large amounts. Additionally, some individuals may have allergies or sensitivities to certain ingredients found in chocolate. Therefore, it is advisable to enjoy chocolate in moderation and choose high-quality options with a higher cocoa content, which generally have less added sugar and more health benefits. ~ChatGPT
For those of us who don’t care about the high caloric content and want to enjoy some sugary deliciousness for one moment out of the year, International Chocolate Day is an annual celebration observed on September 13th to honor the delicious treat loved by people worldwide. Chocolate has a rich history and cultural significance, and this day serves as an opportunity to indulge in its delectable flavors and explore its various forms.
Dark chocolate is considered the healthiest for those concerned about health because it contains less sugar and more beneficial antioxidants. Dark chocolate has more cocoa solids, typically 70% to 99%. It has a more intense and slightly bitter flavor due to its high cocoa content. It is often used in baking cooking and enjoyed as a standalone treat. It is also the favorite type of Florida Jolt’s Editor at Large, Tracy Caruso.
Milk chocolate is the most popular chocolate type in candy bars, desserts, and confections. Milk chocolate combines cocoa solids, cocoa butter, sugar, and milk powder or condensed milk. It has a sweeter and creamier taste compared to dark chocolate. Milk chocolate typically has a lower percentage of cocoa solids, usually around 40% to 50%.

Some argue that white chocolate is not technically chocolate since it doesn’t contain cocoa solids but cocoa butter, but who am I to say it’s not chocolate? The word chocolate is in its name, so that’s good enough for me. White chocolate does not contain cocoa solids; it is made from cocoa butter, sugar, and milk solids. It has a pale ivory color and a rich and creamy flavor. White chocolate lacks the distinctive taste since it doesn’t contain cocoa solids. It is commonly used in desserts, baking, and as a topping or decoration.
Overall, the main differences between these types of chocolate lie in their cocoa content, flavor profile, and composition. Dark chocolate has a higher cocoa content and a more intense flavor, while milk chocolate is sweeter and creamier. White chocolate, on the other hand, lacks cocoa solids and has a milder taste. Each type offers a unique chocolate experience, catering to different preferences and uses.
The best way to honor today’s important holiday is to eat and enjoy a delicious chocolate treat.
