While I prefer unkept promises, a box of chocolate is high on the list for most people’s Valentine’s Day plans…whether you consume it with your sweetie or celebrate the fact that you are alone. In America, we each eat about 11 pounds of chocolate per year. Here’s the shocking news: for once, we’re not the biggest pigs when it comes to food. The Swiss, Germans, and Brits all choke back more chocolate per capita than we do. U.S.A.! U.S.A.!
Western Europe and the United States
If you’re like me, Sunday’s Souper Bowl (we can’t say "super" for legal purposes, apparently) is less about the game and more about: Eating and drinking the perfect food, Enjoying the company of friends while focusing on the commercials, and Hoping there is a God who doesn’t allow Tom Brady or Eagles fans reason to celebrate. Sadly someone has to win this most symbolically American of Souper Bowls pitting Patriots against recently endangered Eagles (conservation does work!).
