One of my favorite sections in every supermarket is the Sweets Shelf. 🍫 🍬 🍭
Who doesn’t love sweets? No matter how much we grow or mature, there always is that part of us that would still go for the things we enjoyed as kids.
An example being Chocolate!!!!
Dark, Milk or White, everyone have the type of chocolate that makes their world come to a stop and be all bright and bubbly.
Chocolates contain good amount of healthy fats, carbohydrates and protein (depending on the type).
We may often buy chocolate not because of its health benefits but just to enjoy a good treat. That is why purchasing a brand that serves both qualities is a plus!
Chocolate bars are very popular in Ghana especially in the urban areas.
It has lately become a favorable gift to serve at birthday parties, engagements, weddings, and corporate events.
To make the product personalized for an event, one can customize the bar chocolate by requesting their information to be printed on the packaging.
In recent times, chocolates have gained much prominence in the Ghanaian market and the many marketing strategies ongoing has increased consumption appreciably.
Did you know that aside chocolate bars, there are many other products made from cocoa?
Talk of Chocolate spreads, Drinking Chocolates, Chocolate coated nuts and artisanal chocolates.
These products are easy to find at the food section of many supermarkets and marts.
Too far from a mall, you might want to look out your window when next you are in town or perhaps a hawker may even find you first.
Chocolates are known to boost one’s energy levels and can be a go-to snack on busy days. Having a few bars at work can help replenish energy and enhance mood on rough days.
It’s not surprising to have our markets flooded with chocolate products during festive seasons.
The brain uses tryptophan (found in cocoa) to produce serotonin, a chemical known for producing the “happy feeling”
Dark chocolates with cocoa content of about 70-85% are reported to contain an appreciable amount of serotonin.
If you are thinking of a treat for yourself or a loved one, why not chocolate?
Serotonin is also known to make us sleep better as it is a chemical precursor to melatonin; the main hormone involved in sleep.
Did you know that drinking a mug of cocoa powder at night can make you sleep better? According to research this is made possible by this same hormone.
Consider visiting the Chocolate Section the next time you go shopping.
