holidays at the office are the perfect time for gift-giving

5 Reasons Why Chocolate Makes the Best Business Gift

 If you’re sitting there wondering whether or not you should give your client a business gift this Holiday Season, the answer is yes because it’s always a good idea to show your gratitude. The question is, what is the best business gift to give? The answer is Chocolate (isn't it always?). And here are five reasons why:

1. People Love Chocolate

 According to a recent study, Americans consume 2.8 billion pounds of chocolate every year. That equates to 11 pounds per person. Those are some serious numbers. You might be thinking that allergies might be a reason to not gift chocolate, but did you know that only one out of 500 people who actually thought they were allergic to chocolate tested positive? It’s true! 

2. Chocolate is Rich in History 

Something you also may not know about chocolate is that people have been enjoying it all the way back as far as 1900 BC in ancient Mexico. Today Chocolate has become one of the most popular food types and flavors in the world and it is viewed as an acceptable gift in many countries and various cultures. 

3. Chocolate Makes You Feel Good 

There have been many studies that have shown some benefits of chocolate but let’s face facts. We don’t eat it for nutrition. We eat chocolate because we love it. Nothing is quite like chocolate. It’s rich, smooth, creamy and delicious. There really isn’t anything else like it.
