Chocolate has been a favorite gift for lovers for a long time—all the way back to the days of the Aztec empire of Central America.

Well, it has been a strange year in cinema. We’ve had movies without plots, without dialogue and without acting—although I guess as long as Vin Diesel is in the business, that’s always a possibility.
