You’ve touched on many of the points that most people don’t know about chocolate. One of the key points that are most important to me are the health benefits of consuming the right kind of dark chocolate. We as a society are just learning now, through modern science, what the ancient Aztec and Mayan people already knew. they consumed a drink daily called Xocolatyl, made from crushing cacao beans and mixing in water. I remember a comment by one of my university professors about the fact that their lifespans were longer and healthier than ours. Interesting? Yes.

I’ve been immersed in the world of chocolate for the past 3+ years and have found chocolate tasting and appreciation to be so much like wine tasting and appreciation. Your article has spelled that out nicely.

Many bean-to-bar chocolates are ethically sourced but by no means all, and the dark side of chocolate (no pun intended) is something to avoid at all costs – child slavery and deforestation being just two components.

Chocolate is an art form, tasty and glorious!

Amazing!

Thanks for sharing the secrets to fully enjoying a great chocolate, not chewing is essential to tasting the perfection of a dark chocolate since chewing brings out the bitterness and masks the creamy perfection.

Love the dark stuff. Just wish I could find it in smaller portions. I have a hard time putting it down and the big bars say 2.5 servings…

Ever since I read *French Women Don’t Get Fat,” I pick up some Valrhona chocolate whenever I’m at Trader Joe’s. I’m so glad chocolate is good for us. :)

I am fortunate to live very close to an artisan chocolatier’s shop called Stella Leona Artisan Chocolates. There is nothing like small batch artisan chocolates.
