Lovers' Treat: Heart-Shaped Chocolate Box

Though Hershey is still much more recognizable to American chocolate lovers, this is home of the sweet stuff north of the border. In fact, the town of St. Stephen was officially registered in 2000 as "Canada's Chocolate Town."

And if you need further proof, each August St. Stephen hosts Chocolate Fest, a festival that includes a chocolate-themed brunch, a treasure hunt, a children's petting zoo, a chocolate pudding eating contest and, of course, the festival's mascot: "The Great Chocolate Mousse."

So why do people love chocolate so much?

"It's that indulgence," Ganong said. "It's that special treat for you."

And for those still worried about their health, Ganong offers a bit of advice: "There are people in my family that used to eat up to 2 pounds of chocolate a day, and they lived until their 80s and 90s. So it can't be that bad for you."
