Chocolate is a Valentine’s Day favorite and just in time for the occasion, bulk nut retailer SuperiorNutStore.com is offering chocolate covered nuts that are ideal for gift giving, as well as for incorporating into Valentine’s Day celebrations. Chocolate has gained much attention in recent years, especially for its known health benefits.
Chocolate is just one of those things that make us think of Valentine’s Day. However, in recent years, chocolate has gained popularity not only for its taste and association with romance, but also for its health benefits.
As one of the world’s favorite foods, chocolate is enjoyed on and for a variety of occasions. When it comes to health benefits, research shows that chocolate (specifically dark chocolate) contains a high amount of flavonoids, as well as antioxidants. Some research even reports that dark chocolate contains nearly 8 times the number of antioxidants found in strawberries. As for flavonoids, they are known to help protect the body from the effects of aging, reduce the risk of heart disease, lower cholesterol, and even help relax blood pressure.
But chocolate is best known for its properties as an aphrodisiac. Dark chocolate, as researchers report, not only tastes good, but can also stimulate production of endorphins and serotonin, which can lift mood and produce a feeling of pleasure. When consumed in moderation, chocolate can be a healthy addition to anyone’s diet – as well as a perfect Valentine’s Day gift.
At SuperiorNutStore.com, an online retailer of bulk nuts and candy, the rising trend of chocolate has been noticed. As a result, the Superior Nut Company is offering a large selection of chocolate covered nuts, which blend together the company’s renowned roasted nuts with the popular Valentine’s favorite.
Chocolate covered almonds, chocolate covered hazelnuts, chocolate covered peanuts, chocolate covered macadamia nuts, chocolate covered pecans, and chocolate covered peanuts are just a few of the chocolate dipped selections one will find in the expanded section of chocolate treats at SuperiorNutStore.com.
This year, SuperiorNutStore.com encourages gifters to give their valentine something sweet, nutty, and healthy by sending a chocolate covered nut gift basket or gift tin from its selection. Chocolate and nuts can prove to be a powerful combination for the heart…in many ways.
SuperiorNutStore.com is the perfect place to find chocolate covered nut selections for your valentine just in time for the holiday.
