Warm the Heart This Valentine's Day

28.01.2013-Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and at Demarquette Fine Chocolates we are busy assisting Cupid's preparations to help you spread the love! As it’s been a particularly long and chilly winter, sending a gift of chocolate is always a wonderful way to warm a heart or two.

Chocolate has long been known for its mood-enhancing qualities, which may be why it is often associated with the holiday of love, friendship and romance. In its earliest years, chocolate was also regarded as a luxury for only the elite, so it was a very fine gift to give and receive. The sweet treat eventually became more widely available to the public, and the first known heart-shaped box of confectionery is said to have been created by Englishman Richard Cadbury in 1861. Today, boxes of tasty chocolate and Valentine's Day are the perfect mix.
