You’ve probably read that chocolate affects your brain by causing the release of the “happiness neurotransmitters” – serotonin, dopamine, and endorphins. Just like coffee, chocolates are good source of polyphenol antioxidants.
Shangri-La's Chocolate Wonderland began last Easter Sunday and you better hurry because it will end this coming April 23, 2017! It's really worth checking out. The festival is filled not just with chocolatey goodness to sink our teeth in but stuff to keep you entertained like jugglers, musicians, magicians, stilt-walkers and dancers to add more magical experience to the Willy Wonka-chocolate-one-of-a-kind-place.
