More About National Chocolate Covered Raisins Day

One of the most common and popular brands of chocolate-covered raisins on the market is Raisinets, first introduced to the United States in 1927 by the Blumenthal Chocolate Company. It was so successful for almost 60 years that candy giant Nestle took the opportunity to add the company to its holdings in 1984. While many other brands have existed in the market at large, for many people Raisinets has become the ‘Kleenex’ of the chocolate-covered raisin world. When people are talking about chocolate-covered raisins, regardless of the brand, they often tend to refer to them as Raisinets. Sun-Maid is another brand that manufactures the treat in the United States, but they’re not quite as well-known. There are lots of brands out there that are similar, although Raisinets actually polishes theirs to make them shiny, but that probably doesn’t make a very big difference in the way they taste. Take the story down under’ to Australia to find a different name for the same yummy treat: Chocolate Covered Sultanas. This is simply a different name for the lighter-colored golden raisins that are made from white or light green grapes. Whatever they are called and wherever they are eaten, these treats are certainly worth celebrating in a big or small way! Mad about chocolate? We think you'll like...
