Happy National Chocolate Covered Raisin Day

Americans never waste an opportunity to pay tribute to Americana, which is why today being National Chocolate Covered Raisin Day should come as no surprise. You can cover pretty much anything in chocolate and it'll taste delicious, but raisins – specifically the brand Raisinets – hold a very special place in the hearts and minds of the country. These shiny little treats are a movie theater standby, and hearken back to days when malts and milk cremes were de rigeur. In honor of this special day, we look at a few other fun chocolate-covered snacks from around the world.
