It's National Chocolate Covered Raisin Day❗

I'm not to crazy about them myself, but moviegoers everywhere have been snacking on them for decades. I'm talking about Chocolate covered raisins.


What goes better with a bucket of buttery popcorn than these, personally I'm partial to snowcaps but, the stats say chocolate covered raisins are the winners hands down.


FUN FACT: More than 1 million Raisinets are produced per hour.


According to nationaldaycalendar.com, "chocolate-covered raisins are known as Raisinets. Raisinets produced the first and one of the most popular brands of the product. Currently made by Nestle, they are the third-largest selling candy in United States history.  The Blumenthal Chocolate Company introduced the Raisinets to the United States in 1927, and then in 1984, Nestle acquired the brand. However, a large number of other brands produce chocolate-covered raisins for us to enjoy. 

Raisins are an excellent source of calcium, potassium, iron, fiber, and vitamin B.  When you combine the raisins with dark chocolate, you have a great-tasting, healthy snack. "
