12 indulgences you could only get away with on International Chocolate Day

All the chocolate, all the time.

IT’S INTERNATIONAL CHOCOLATE day. Time to get chocolate wasted.

You can’t do these on an average day without drowing in guilt (and chocolate), but today, throw all caution to the wind.

1. Go on, eat Nutella from the jar

It’s only about 4,000 calories, so finish off the whole thing.

2. Add a little chocolate to your coffee

‘A little’.

Or find ways to work it into your tea consumption.

If you’re watching your cholesterol, pour it over your cereal instead of milk.


4. Drench healthy snacks in chocolate

There’s no time for fruit today.

6. Gratuitously pour melty chocolate on things

Every, thing.




7. Use maths to magically make more chocolate

Any other day it would just seem an excessive waste of time and borderline desperate.


8. Make your furniture chocolate

OK you’re pushing it now, but we’re still on board.

Paring a pencil has never been so delicious.

12. Drink a chocolate beer to unwind

What a time to be alive.
