Stay positive, keep hygiene levels up and don't fall prey to panic and misinformation.

As we write this list, we’re reminded of one quote that remains in our minds after we gobble up a bar (or 10!) of chocolates, and that is ‘Life happens, chocolate helps.’ If you’re a chocolate lover, then y’all know the sentiment and comfort connected to a bar of chocolate that soothes us even on the darkest of days. We were on the lookout for some homegrown chocolate brands because now is the time to go #VocalForLocal and we stumbled upon these gems, so read on and order up!
