Ode To Chocolate

The jury is still out on whether chocolate sales will suffer significantly in the current recession. It's traditionally a recession-proof product, but these days people are cutting back on luxuries in a big way, and chocolate is definitely a luxury.

An upcoming bright spot for sales is the Easter holiday. Chocolate is a treat that will be found in the Easter baskets of millions of children across the globe. In fact, Easter is one of the very best holidays for chocolate sales in the United States along with Valentines day and Halloween. Since chocolate can be easily melted down and molded into any shape imaginable it can make the perfect gift for any occasion. Children will soon find chocolate bunnies, eggs, chickens, lambs, crosses and all sots of other things in their Easter baskets.

Of course, the cult of chocolate extends way past holidays. It is rumored by some cultures to be an aphrodisiac, and many proclaim various health benefits including anti-cancer and blood pressure reduction effects.

I have not met many people in my life who don't love chocolate, musicians included. This playlist includes 25 chocolate inspired songs that you can enjoy while you bite the ears off your own chocolate rabbit this Easter.
