We are often surprised by some of the National calendar days: National Sleep in Public Day, National Ugly Truck Day, National Send a Card to a Friend Day, National Egg Frying on Sidewalk Day, and there are hundreds more crazy ones where those came from. At Wilmar we have decided that every day is better with chocolate, so we made up MUNCH – Made Up National Chocolate Holidays, and each MUNCH includes our favorite food! We welcome ideas for any MUNCH day you would like to see us honor. Send ideas to our FaceBook page https://www.facebook.com/wilmarchocolates/
When people think of Wisconsin, they think of cows and farmers and cheese. And yes, all of those imaginings are part of reality here in Wisconsin, and we are very proud of them. But the cows and farmers contribute to the chocolate industry in Wisconsin too. Wisconsin chocolatiers are end users for the rich cream, the unsalted butter, the vitamin packed milk that come from local farmers. We are proud makers and purveyors of cream rendered caramels, unbeatable butter toffee, silky smooth truffles, and delectable double chocolates. Each of these using milk, cream, or butter sourced from our local dairy farms. Because of this partnership, Wisconsin is blessed with one of the highest ratios of chocolate shops per capita in the US.
Be proud Wisconsinites! Be proud of our farmers, our cows, our cheese, and our chocolate!
