Why do we give chocolate for Valentine's Day?

Giving chocolate as a gift can be dated back to the time of the Aztecs - when it was thought to bring wisdom, energy and attractiveness to the receiver. Chocolate is a well known aphrodisiac, that releases endorphins when consumed that emulates the feelings of falling in love, so it's not hard to see why chocolate is such a popular gift - especially if someone is hoping to win a special someone's affections.

In 1861, Richard Cadbury created the first heart shaped box to deliver his family's chocolate confections in for Valentine's Day, and began what has become a long-standing tradition that is still celebrated today.‚Äč
