Chocolate Expo Coming to Newburgh, New York
Hudson Valley residents who have a sweet tooth might want to get down to Newburgh this weekend.
Americans and especially New Yorkers love their sweets. Candy gets popular around the fall season especially during Halloween. Even leading up to Christmas and Hanukkah people love to use the holidays to eat festive candies. It turns out that we may use the holidays as an excuse to eat more candy but that doesn't stop us from eating it all year. It is estimated that the average American eats just under 10 pounds of candy each year. I think I may double that each year.
The most popular type of candy consistently s chocolate. It would be difficult to find someone who didn't like some form of chocolate whether it is a brownie, candy bar or cookie.
I know I am not the only candy lover around here. There are so many chocolate lovers that plane to fill a whole building full of them this weekend in Newburgh, New York.
