How America Loves Chocolate...
* The retail chocolate industry in the U.S. is worth $13 billion per year.
* Valentine's Day still means Chocolate. Americans spend $1.059 billion each Valentine's Day on candy, making it the fourth biggest holiday of the year for confectionery purchases (after Halloween, Christmas and Easter).
* American men say they'd rather receive chocolate than flowers on Valentine's Day, especially those over the age of 50. Sixty-eight percent of men age 50 or older say they'd prefer receiving chocolate over flowers from their sweetheart on Valentine's Day, while just 22% said they'd rather have the flowers.
* The first "chocolate box" was introduced by Richard Cadbury in 1868, when he decorated a candy box with a painting of his young daughter holding a kitten in her arms. Cadbury also invented the first Valentine's Day candy box.
* Chocolate manufacturers use 40% of the world's almonds, 20% of the world's peanuts and 8% of the world 's sugar. Members of the Chocolate Manufacturers Association use about 3.5 million pounds of the whole milk each day to make milk chocolate.
