National Chocolate Covered Raisins Day

National Chocolate Covered Raisins Day is celebrated every year on March 24th. Chocolate covered raisins are a fairly "good for you" snack. Raisins are a good source of fiber, potassium, iron, calcium, and certain B vitamins. They are also low in fat and cholesterol and contain antioxidants. If you were to eat raisins covered in dark chocolate they'd be even better for you since research has found that eating a small amount of dark chocolate each day is good for your heart.

Just for fun, why don't we watch a gecko lizard licking a chocolate covered raisin?



It doesn't get much better than that!
