Despite both strawberries and chocolate having over a millennium of history, this synchronicity of sweets is relatively young. Believe it or not, many credit Lorraine Lorusso, a Chicagoan, with creating and selling the first ever chocolate-covered strawberries at her local shop in 1960.
This tasty pairing is often used as a romantic gift, and is quite popular on Valentine’s Day. Despite its young age compared to other foods and food combinations, there’s no question chocolate covered strawberries have made their mark, and inspired many other chocolate covered fruit combinations including bananas, cherries, blueberries and more. Is it romance that keeps these refreshing red candy covered goodies relevant? Maybe, but the fact that fruit and chocolate make a great combination probably helps too.
