10 Reasons Why you Should Read and Eat Chocolate

                    Why You Should Read and Eat Chocolate

  • Let's start with reason number one, CHOCOLATE IS AMAZING! We can end it here, but let's continue.

  • Do you enjoy reading at the beach, in the garden or at a park? Dark chocolate is full of flavonols that helps protect the skin against sun damage. It shouldn't be a replacement for sunscreen. However, applying sunscreen, munching on a dark bar of chocolate from your Kekao Box and enjoying Vitamin D could be what the soul is looking for.

  • Does reading make you feel good? If you want to experience the perfect euphoria try combining the novel you can't put down with a chocolate bar. Chocolate has phenylethylamine or PEA, which allows the brain to release endorphins. Endorphins are the things that make our bodies feel good, so double down with reading and chocolate.

  • Chocolate bars and chocolate wrappers make for the perfect bookmarks. The darker the chocolate, the stronger the scent it will leave on the book. You can enjoy the aroma throughout the entire book.

  • Do you struggle with remembering how the story left off when you get back into a book? Well, chocolate can help prevent memory decline - this means you have to grab a bite before you start reading, no excuse.
