      Most people love chocolate, but don’t know much about it. Let’s expand our chocolate culture:

WHITE OR DARK?

* Technically, white chocolate is not chocolate because it has no cocoa;
* Dark chocolate can have a lot of caffeine – as much as a can of Coca-Cola;

MAIN INGREDIENT: COCOA

* Africa produces 2/3 of all cocoa in the world;
* To produce 450 grams of chocolate it takes around 400 cocoa beans;
* We need to use all cocoa produced by one cocoa tree during one year to make 10 Hershey’s chocolate bars, 

MONEY? NOOOO…CHOCOLATE!

* In 1938, Ruth Wakefield invented the chocolate chip cookie. She sold her recipe to Nestle in exchange for one dollar + a lifetime supply of chocolate.
