Summary
Chocolate has been used as a comfort, a treat, a cure, a form of money, and even a sacred symbol for thousands of years. And while it comes in all kinds of food and drink, one thing is clear: chocolate is such an important part of our everyday lives that it's difficult to imagine a time when it wasn't around--or a time when it might not be once again. Join Kay Frydenborg on a journey through chocolate's earliest uses in Mesoamerica, its meteoric rise in Western society, the slave labor practices that have historically enabled (and continue to enable) the chocolate industry to thrive, and the modern science used to help sustain our chocolate habit
