World Chocolate Day

World Chocolate Day – This day is when the world celebrates chocolate. Even some chocolaty deals. Who doesn’t like chocolate? #WorldChocolateDay 🍫



World Chocolate Day

For this special day Krispy Kreme donuts made a special donut with a chocolate glaze. Starting at midnight in that time zone on July 7.

World Chocolate Day

At the time of this blog post, Krispy Kreme in New Zealand and a few other countries has already produced the first batch of these special donuts. Of the crazy flavors they have been doing with their normal process this is one that I would try.

This day is also known as International Chocolate Day. It has been held annually on July 7th each year. It seems to have started in 2009. Some people believe this day marks the introduction of chocolate to Europe in 1550.

However, National Chocolate Day is held October 28th.

  1. They aren’t too bad either. Just got me one. They would be better as chocolate cake with chocolate icing. I was also disappointed because they still didn’t have chocolate glaze going on the donuts. They were right back to their normal process when I arrived at the N. Broadway location in Knoxville, TN.
