Why give chocolate on Valentine's Day?
Chocolate is a mysterious delicacy . Why is it so hard to resist and why has it become such a symbol of love? The explanation could come from chemistry .
A chocolate that has a high cocoa content (this is the case with Sigoji chocolates) contains phenylethylamine . This complicated-named molecule is also called the “love molecule” . She would play a major role in love at first sight .
Chocolate does not act like a love potion (it would be known), but it would have a positive impact on the mood and would allow to awaken the senses .
The tradition of Valentine's Day in Japan
The tradition of Valentine's Day in Japan is interesting. On February 14, women - and only women - offer chocolate to men . The latter will wait for their side on March 14, White Day, to offer a generally white gift (why not chocolate?) in gratitude for the chocolates received a month earlier.

Happiness in every bite
