Chocolate corner

Three chocolate facts

1 The world’s largest box of chocolates weighed in at 2,002 lbs. It was made in Chicago, USA, and contained Frango mints.

2 Africa now produces over 66% of the world’s supply of chocolate.

3 The first cacao trees were found growing in the Amazon river basin and the foothills of the Venezuelan and Colombian Andes.

Since this is Easter I treated myself to some very good chocolate made from single source beans. 85% from Ecuador and 70% from the Dominican Republic. The notes on the wrapping sounded like notes from wine tasting. But both are as smooth as silk and tempting to over eat
