An Ode to Chocolate-Covered Anything

In Celebration of National Chocolate-Covered Anything Day

December 16, 2014

Today, Dec. 16, is National Chocolate-Covered Anything Day.

If you didn’t know, now you do.

Join us in honoring this sweet day with a poem…

An Ode to Chocolate-Covered Anything

Is it me, or does everything taste better when it’s chocolate-covered?
Dipped or coated in a candy shell—or better: completely smothered.

Strawberries, popcorn, almonds, Oreos, spicy jalapeno poppers,

Apples, marshmallows, bacon, peanuts, ants and green grasshoppers;

Pretzels and espresso beans—there’s something for everyone!
The fact is everything tastes better when it and chocolate become one.

Have you ever feasted on chocolate-covered dill pickles?
If crickets turn your stomach, you can play it safe with brickle.

The first step is to pick your chocolate: milk, dark, or white,
Then melt it on the stovetop, and dip to your heart’s delight!

Anything and everything tastes better chocolate-covered—
Which is why today we celebrate one of the best food groups ever discovered.

Treat yourself or a chocolate-lover near you with a chocolate-covered snack from Greyhound-owned, Baltimore-based Glarus Chocolatier.
