Yes, chocolate really comes from beans!


I told C that chocolate is made from beans. She, of course, thought that I was just trying to tease her about beans because she doesn't like beans.



Well, Alexis sent me a link with pictures. Read all about chocolate from the seed to the bean to the candy bar and cake.

Some people really didn't know that??

When we were in Grenada this year, we did a tour of a cocoa plantation and actually ate some chocolate in its natural form. Tasted rather citrus-y actually.

chocolate
Well, C is only eight; so she's entitled to not really know that yet... :)

I wondered what chocolate in natural form would taste like. Occasionally when I eat chocolate or vanilla, I think it tastes a bit "fruity," but I've wondered if that was just me. I wonder if I could learn to like it apart from all the added sugars...

Re: chocolate
It's not really sweet, though. It's really nothing like regular chocolate. It is good, granted.

Definitely go to the Caribbean, then, and try it for yourself!
