We're pretty sure you don't need 10 reasons to eat chocolate cake at Easter, or just plain chocolate for that matter, but just in case you were thinking of feeling even a little bit guilty about it here are 10 very serious, fully researched reasons not to!
We like chocolate for one simple reason: it tastes pretty damn good. Whether your Easter chocolate of choice is a cute bunny, a giant egg or, heaven forbid, those creme eggs, you shouldn’t feel bad about eating something delicious (except you creme egg people...sociopaths).
We say treat yo-self! Buy the good stuff and leave the chalky dollar store eggs for the kids, they can’t taste the difference anyway. You are a chocolate connoisseur and you deserve the best.
Okay so apparently there’s a bunch of science examining how the compound anandamide makes your brain all happy. We think it doesn’t take a PhD to realise chocolate makes you feel good but if the smart lab coat people say so I guess we have to eat it!
Let’s be real. Chocolate cake is the king of all cakes. And chocolate ganache frosting? We would swim in it if we could. Plus we think chocolate cakes make some of the most beautiful cakes out there. Check out our Pinterest page for a ton of chocolate cake decorating inspiration.
Ever bitten into a chocolate chip cookie only to discover it was raisins? Don’t disappoint your friends and family like that, make them a proper chocolate cookie.
While it happens on a different date every year apparently having it more than once a year is just too much so we just have to make the most of it while it’s here. And yes, that means eating ALL the chocolate Easter eggs.
We earn the money, we buy the eggs, we should get to hunt for them as well! Don’t forget to treat yourself as well as the kids this Easter.
To be honest we really have no idea what an antioxidant is...or an oxidant either for that matter. But apparently they are...good for you? For your heart we think? Anyway we’ll take it, and a hot chocolate while we’re at it as well.
The only thing cuter than an actual bunny is a chocolate bunny. Because it can’t hop away, and it is much yummier to eat.
Apparently this only applies to dark chocolate but personally some of us here at Lollipop HQ are pretty partial to milk chocolate so we’re going to pretend it applies to that as well.
Did we mention it tastes good? As far as we’re concerned that’s all the excuse needed to indulge a little this Easter.
