Häagen-Dazs Ruby Cacao:

Häagen-Dazs  has just dropped a limited edition ruby cacao ice cream for Valentine’s Day. Ruby cacao is a type of cacao that can be found in Ecuador, Brazil, and Ivory Coast.  Since cacao is influenced by its environment, so ruby cacao has to be cultivated by specific regions.  Ruby is the fourth chocolate, milk, dark, and white. Scientists at the Swiss chocolate-making company Barry Callebaut debuted ruby cacao in September 2017.  You will be able to get this red chocolate until September. Get the scoop: Delish

National Chocolate Cake Day:

On January 27th it’s National Chocolate Cake Day. Chocolate Cake has been with us since 1764. Philadelphia cookbook author, Eliza Leslie, published the earliest chocolate cake recipe in 1847 in The Lady’s Receipt Book.  The original recipe used chopped chocolate. The first boxed cake mix was created by a company called O. Duff and Sons in the late 1920s. Betty Crocker released their first dry cake mixes in 1947. The rest is cake history.  Get the scoop: National Holiday Calendar
