Most people think of February 14th as only Valentine’s Day, but few people actually realize that this holiday is also National Cream-Filled Chocolate Day. Which, if you think about it, makes quite a bit of sense. After all, how many people receive boxes of cream-filled chocolates for this holiday?
We figure quite a few people get boxes of chocolates, so anyone wishing to observe this holiday and Valentine’s Day can kill two birds with one stone. Of course, anyone celebrating this day is going to have a pretty hard time deciding on what types of chocolates they’re going to want to enjoy.
