If you’re trying to make someone happy this month, (and who isn’t?), you could do worse than to give a gift of chocolate. Especially if that special someone is a woman.
A new survey from Swiss chocolate maker Lindt & Sprungli finds that chocolate makes women happier –especially when it’s free.
Now, before you get all cynical and say, “sure, of course a chocolate company finds that chocolate makes people happy,” think about it for a minute: who isn’t made a bit happier by chocolate?
Of course, people who are allergic to chocolate aren’t happy with it, nor is it thrilling to eat too much of the stuff and gain five pounds.
But, for those who like chocolate and can eat it in moderation, it truly is a happy food.
Two-thirds (67%) of the women survey said that they can never have too much chocolate, while nearly half (42%) say they enjoy chocolate every day, the company found.
A full (85%) of those polled agree that chocolate makes them happier.
