Starchild: Malaysian children share their drawings on the topic, Chocolates

Saraneya Jay Kumar, 8

Don't we all love chocolates? There are many types of chocolates in the world and they come in all shapes and sizes. I grew up enjoying milk chocolate, white chocolate and chocolates filled with fruit and nuts. My favourtites are the orange-flavoured Cadbury Zip chocolate, Crispy chocolate cereal bars and Quality Street chocolates which come individually wrapped in colourful wrappers. Have you tried any of these treats?

World Chocolate Day is celebrated annually on July 7. It is a day for chocolate lovers to celebrate their passion for one of the world’s favourite treats.

Recently Starchild asked readers to send in their letters on the topic, Chocolates. Here’s what they had to say.

Seven-year-old Ashvini Jeyakanthan enjoys eating chocolates because chocolate tastes yummy and sweet. “Chocolate milk is my favourite drink.

“I love caramel chocolates, dark chocolate and white chocolate. Chocolate comes from the seeds of the cacao plant. On its own, chocolate is bitter. Caramel was invented in France by a chocolatier named Henri Le Roux in the 1960s, ” says Sanjay Kumaran, eight.
