About World Chocolate Day
World Chocolate Day is an annual holiday that celebrates the deliciousness of chocolate. It is observed on July 7th and is coordinated by the International Cocoa Organization. On July 7, 1550, chocolate was brought to Europe for the first time, and this date was chosen because it marks that event. The holiday is a great excuse to indulge in your favorite sweet treat, and what better way to do so than with some music?
Savoy Truffle – The Beatles
World Chocolate Day is upon us once again! And what better way to celebrate than by tribute to one of the most iconic chocolate-themed songs of all time: The Beatles’ “Savoy Truffle”. The song was written by George Harrison as a tribute to his friend Eric Clapton, and it is full of references to specific kinds of chocolate.
For example, the line “You know you should have seen her / eating that savoy truffle” is a reference to Clapton’s love of the rich, creamy chocolate. The savoy truffle is also mentioned in the opening line of the song: “I need a fix ’cause I’m going down”. This line refers to the fact that the Savoy truffle is a highly addictive treat! So addictive, in fact, that it was once banned in the United States. Thankfully, the ban was lifted and we can now enjoy this delicious chocolate treat on World Chocolate Day. Thanks, George Harrison!
