BOSTON ( TheStreet) --Its origins are unclear, but International Chocolate Day is still a great day for sweet-toothed investors to get a piece of the action.For reasons as darkly shrouded as an 80% cocoa chocolate bar, today is a global chocolate holiday of the ilk usually conjured up by industry lobbies. Perhaps it's because Milton Hershey, the founder of Hershey (HSY - Get Report), was born on this date in 1857. The day may also derive from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory author Roald Dahl, who was born today in 1916. Either way, it arrives as fortunes sweeten for many global confectioners amid ebbing economic instability.
