How sweet: It's World Chocolate Day

A DAY without chocolate is not a good day for Lana Civelle. That's why she can't wait to celebrate World Chocolate Day today.

"So far the plan is to drink iced chocolate while soaking in a bath of M & Ms and watch Willy Wonka on DVD," she said.

The 25-year-old, who bought chocolate for her NT News photoshoot the night before and had to "restrain herself" to stop from eating it, said she "definitely likes to indulge".

"Life needs some sweetening up every now and then," Ms Civelle said. "Chocolate is at its best when its just a little bit melted, just a little bit soft."

July 7 marks 465 years since chocolate was introduced to Europe.

Before that, chocolate was used by the Aztecs and Mayans as currency.

But for chocolate lovers like Ms Civelle, every day is chocolate day. "I even travelled to New Zealand, just for the Jaffa Festival in Dunedin," she said. "Just indulge a little, what's to lose?"
