(WRIC) — There’s no better way to celebrate the approach of Halloween than to indulge in a piece of chocolate.

Well, you have two reasons to treat yourself today — not only is Halloween right around the corner, but today (October 28) is National Chocolate Day!

In addition to our celebration of chocolate here in the states, the Salon du Chocolat begins today in Paris, France. According to the event’s website, there will be hundreds of international chocolatiers there with chocolates that can’t be found anywhere else in the world. Along with the 220 chocolatiers, pastry chefs, confectioners and cocoa experts will all be in attendance to treat visitors with special, chocolate-y recipes. (Editor’s note: Sounds like a place I’d really enjoy!)

The event will also host the World Chocolate Masters Final, an “international competition devoted solely to the art of chocolate.”

Whether you like sweet, unsweetened, milk or white chocolate, go ahead and satisfy your sweet tooth today!
