Take a sweet drive this month

It can be hot. It can be cold. It can come in a box or it can come in a bag. Sometimes it’s square, sometime it’s round. Sometimes it’s filled, sometimes it’s hollow. It can be a powder or a solid. But it is always gobbled up! Did you know that eating a small, 1.6-ounce bar of dark chocolate every day is good for you...
