The highest amounts of chocolate sales in the US are for Valentine’s Day (and the second highest sales are for the bargain hunters on February 15th!). Worldwide there are over $400 million dollars of chocolate sales for Valentine’s Day. The chocolate we consume is part of a long process heavily dependent on chemistry. From the harvest to the consumption, chemistry plays a role in how chocolate is formed, feels, smells, tastes and is perceived. Join us today in looking at the art and chemistry of chocolate in honor of Valentine’s Day.
