Hearts for Haiti NJ Launch

By Evelyn Cucchiara

Tonight was a very busy night at The Chocolate Rose Shoppe in Madison NJ.  From 7:00pm to 9:45pm we held the kickoff event (over 100 people attended) to help raise funds for Hearts for Haiti.  During this evening, over $900 was donated to the American Red Cross for Haiti relief.  This was done through the sales of packs of cards (20 cards - an example depicted above) for $15.  During the event, chocolate, wine, and cheese tasting was enjoyed by all.  The launch was coordinated by Madison resident Lauren Cantor and Tivoli Creative owner Melanie Tomaszewski.

Hearts for Haiti cards are available for purchase at our Chocolate Shoppe and at other shops around town.

"It all started as a discussion between a mother and her child. Elle Cantor, a third grader at Torey J. Sabatini Elementary School in Madison, New Jersey, was watching “Good Morning America” with her mom, Lauren Cantor, as part of a daily morning routine before school."  To read more about it, click here:

The Health Benefits of Chocolate

In their September 2009 article, Health Magazine, called Chocolate - "THE HEALTHY INDULGENCE!"  They also stated that it is the "ultimate feel-good food that keeps your heart healthy, mood up, and body in great shape."  There are four areas that were highlighted:

Heart Helper: A study in the Journal of Nutrition found that people who ate dark chocolate had less of a protein that increases inflammation, which can lead to a heart attack. 

Mood Enhancer:  Chocolate is often craved when we are feeling down.   Tryptophan contained in chocolate increases the mood-lifting serotonin in the brain.  "Another study even found that the taste, texture, and smell make us happier."

Skin Soother:  Chocolate with the benefits of its antioxidants is often used in spa treatments to help smooth and soften the skin.

Cravings Buster:  "University of Copenhagen researchers found that subjects felt fuller and craved fewer sweet, salty, and fatty foods when they snacked on chocolate.  Be sure to choose dark chocolate as its low glycemic index steadies blood sugar levels, cutting cravings."
