Victoria or Nanaimo chocolate sales increase dramatically around Valentine’s Day. The Duncan Super Wal-Mart and Victoria Costco often run out of Lindt and Dove special-edition Valentine’s boxes. Forgetful chocolate gift-givers dash into Duncan on Vancouver Island convenience stores on their way home from work, hoping to find something fancier than a Kit-Kat bar. International chocolate sales hit $345 million in February 2009. Why is this heavenly confection associated with the most romantic of all holidays?
Perhaps it is because chocolate triggers the release of endorphins. Physical intimacy also causes the release of these ‘love chemicals’ that create pleasurable feelings.
Chocolate and romance have been linked for thousands of years. The Aztecs used cacao-based beverages in rituals involving the worship of Xochiquetzal. In Aztec mythology, Xochiquetzal is the female deity linked to fertility and sexuality. In more than one culture, cacao beans were used to woo women.
