A few, very rare things in life have the power to transcend space and time, creed, colour and custom to become a Universal Tradition. Chocolate is one of them. Who doesn’t love the rich, swirling, sweet, delicious burst of flavour offered by a slab of milk chocolate? The tangy, lingering bittersweet aroma of dark chocolate? The liquor-ish juice that gushes forth like rivulets from the squishy centres of prettily wrapped taste treats, flooding your mouth with mind-boggling flavor at every bite?
Today, chocolate is the king of desserts and the endless innovative varieties in which it is available will certainly keep you in taste-bud Nirvana. There is proof enough of the world’s unending love affair with chocolate about 600,000 tons of it is said to be produced for yearly consumption world-wide.
