The flavors of fall

The season of Autumn brings so many wonderful things: cooler weather, cozy fashion and one of my personal favorites, fall themed snacks!! With the months of September, October and November corporations everywhere come out with delicious food everyone wishes wasn’t just seasonal. According to a poll taken on the Cen10 News Twitter, out of the options pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin pie, hot chocolate and sweet potato casserole, hot chocolate was the favorite. Ever wondered why we favor hot chocolate in the cold seasons? According to The Guardian, the myriad of chemical compounds contained in chocolate trigger the brain to release endorphins that induce calm feelings. This could explain why winter is named “cuddle weather”. The temperature is dropping titans, bundle up, grab some hot chocolate and stay warm!
