It's national chocolate covered raisins day on the 24th March.
Let's dive into the internet history of this mouthwatering celebration. National Chocolate Covered Raisins Day first started gaining traction online on 24th March 2015, when chocolate lovers around the world couldn't help but share their love for these chocolaty raisin-infused goodies. Since then, this special day has become an annual occasion for people to come together, indulge in chocolatey delight, and spread the joy of chocolate covered raisins.
Chocolate covered raisins, also known as Raisinets, were first invented in 1927 by the Blumenthal Brothers Chocolate Company. The company wanted to create a delicious and convenient way to enjoy raisins, and they came up with the idea of coating them in chocolate. This innovative combination quickly became a hit among chocolate lovers and raisin enthusiasts alike.
The popularity of chocolate covered raisins continued to grow throughout the 1930s. People enjoyed the unique texture and taste of the sweet chocolate paired with the chewy raisins. As more and more consumers discovered this delightful treat, demand for chocolate covered raisins skyrocketed, making them a staple on candy store shelves.
In 1973, Raisinets made their first appearance on the big screen. They were featured in the iconic film 'Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory,' in which Charlie Bucket and his Grandpa Joe delightedly enjoy the chocolate covered raisins during their tour of the chocolate factory. This exposure led to a surge in popularity for Raisinets and further cemented their place in popular culture.
In 1986, Nestlé acquired the Blumenthal Brothers Chocolate Company, the original creators of Raisinets. This acquisition brought Raisinets into the Nestlé family of chocolate brands, ensuring their continued availability and success in the market. Nestlé's expertise in chocolate production and distribution further propelled the growth of Raisinets as a beloved chocolate covered raisin brand.
