Chocolate Sales are still climbing!

Chocolate is the main comfort "sweet" that people are purchasing as a "small indulgence."

In an Associated Press article published in our weekly Sunday paper's business section, it states that chocolate sales are climbing. We claim our share of that.

The article is entitled "Hot in recession: Running shoes, chocolate, Spam." It's tracking sales trends on what people are spending their money on. "Sales of chocolate...are up...Yet they still are willing to shell out for small indulgences and goods that make life more comfortable..." And "People are much more focused on their...immediate happiness and they're buying things they can use themselves...Lipstick and chocolate are small rewards that make you feel better."

The article goes on to state that Hershey's first quarter surged by 20% and beat predictions and expectations.

So - we claim our share of this. Smith Organic Chocolates is "the little guy" and we offer a far better quality product than Hershey's. Check us out!

We are dedicated to bringing you the best nutritional information, general product news, and trends in our chocolate world.

We're On Twitter Facebook & LinkedIN

Ok. We did it. We're on Twitter. We're on Facebook. We are not going to go to MySpace. But for those of you who are acquainted with the professional network of LinkedIN, we are also on that.

We have entered the 21st Century!

But we still make chocolates the old fashioned way - by hand!!

Chocolate Powered Car!! I love it!

News story credit: "Chocolate-Powered 150 MPH Race Car Revealed"

Well, now they've done it! A team of British scientists have invested a part-vegetable/grain racing car that is powered by CHOCOLATE!! Can you believe it!?

As part of a biodiesel fuel, chocolate powers this prototype race car that can reach speeds of up to 15o mph.

I laughed my way through this article! I think it's terrific that scientists are experimenting with chocolate as fuel for cars! It's already known for "fueling" human beings!

What do you think? Post a comment and let us know.
