If you're not sure what to do today then let your tongue know that it's National Chocolate Mint Day!  This flavor combination is loved by many.  Let's get right into celebrating National Chocolate Mint Day!

WHY IS THIS A HOLIDAY?  

Today is a holiday for the simple reason that people love the combination of these two flavors: chocolate and mint. It's a combination that's almost as common as chocolate and peanut butter, but not quite ;).  And if you were to tell someone to get you some chocolate mint or some mint chocolate they wouldn't always come back with the same thing. Why? Because the mint could be creme de menthe, peppermint or spearmint. So there could be a slight variation in taste there.

And the chocolate could be dark chocolate, milk chocolate or white chocolate. So there's another definite variation in taste. But that's the beauty of today, you're not limited to a specific thing!  There's actually a hybrid mint plant that tastes and smells like chocolate mint too! That'd save you a little time combining the two flavors, wouldn't it? Trust me, you're going to have more chocolate mint choices than you can deal with in one day! And don't feel guilty if you go overboard today... it's a celebration ;).

HOW TO CELEBRATE 

So how can you celebrate today?  Well, if you love this flavor combination then you have an excuse to go on a chocolate mint shopping spree! Go through every aisle if you want and look for the different kinds of food there is that blends together mint and chocolate. And then compare them as you munch them down.  You could even have a little competition between your friends and family. Each of you can pick out one or two chocolate mint items you think are the best and then all of you try them out when you get home. Then you each can rate the items to see which one truly is the most ideal treat for this day.
 
I'm sure one of the most common things that will be bought to celebrate today will be mint chocolate chip ice cream, but there are so many other choices. You could go with the basic mint-flavored chocolates, or chocolate mint cookies or even mint-flavored hot chocolate. You could even grab some mint extract or fresh mint and get some chocolate chips to melt down and blend together your own chocolate mint. Then you can pour your chocolate creation into different shapes to celebrate today in your own unique way.  Or hey, why not pick up your own chocolate mint plant today? Get a pre-potted one if you want a delicious smelling plant in your house. That way you'll have a nice air freshener that also doubles as a flavor enhancer for meals or snacks!  Then you can go crazy and see how many different dishes could use a nice flavor boost from your new plant.  Or you can always just bask in the aroma of chocolate mint.  I have a feeling it'll be a sweet celebration for you, regardless of how you decide to celebrate!
