Chocolate Extravaganza... Count me in!

Did you know tomorrow (May 2nd) mark’s 6th College’s 10th annual Chocolate Festival?! The event began in 2004 and has delighted students and staff ever since.  Three enormous chocolate fountains arriving from the local Chocolate Monkey Company will fill 6th College’s quad with an array of cookies, cakes and fresh fruits to enjoy & dip into the chocolate goodness!

Why is your RD promoting chocolate? If you haven’t heard, chocolate boasts a variety of health benefits.  In particular, dark chocolate has been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease due to its naturally occurring flavanol content. Bottom line, there is some truth to the saying “a piece of dark chocolate a day may keep the doctor at bay!”
Why else should you check out 6th College tomorrow? Well, besides indulging in a deliciously “healthy” chocolatey treat, you will be able to increase your physical activity by participating in games with your peers! Out on the Res Hall Quad there will be inflatables, game booths, and this year they are incorporating a “Pie Your Professor” element.  Students have the opportunity to donate cans to pie their professor. 

Not a fan of chocolate? Don't worry! Foodworx and 6th Market are right next door to provide you with a selection of delicious eats to satisfy your craving.

Be sure to post your pictures from tomorrows event on the TasteBud Facebook page and leave a comment here of your favorite chocolate indulgence. Remember, balance and moderation are key to healthy living in college, so enjoy a dollop of chocolate guilt-free!
