    The cacao and coffee industries are the fastest growing in the world, meaning these commodities are in huge demand. You probably have at least one of these things in your daily diet but do you consider where it’s coming from?

    Spring is in the air and it seems just about everyone has a hop, skip and a jump in their step. Easter is around the corner and refreshing new tastes and flavours are awakening the palate once again. So long pumpkin spice and those heavy ganaches. Hello to strawberry purees and rejuvenating rose and lavender flavour filled chocolate delights. Odile Chocolat has just the thing for spring and she has just started to display her spring product in the front window of her shop at Dundas and Euclid.

    Individuals spend more than $7 billion dollars a year on plain old chocolate. Money well spent in my opinion. The numbers for chocolate products are even more impressive. Worldwide consumers spend more than $20 billion per year on chocolate products alone!!

    Clearly, the love for chocolate is a universal one. And as chocolate junkies, we really wish we could visit every continent finding you the best chocolate around the world. The task may seem daunting to some but to Choco-locate it’s just another day at the office. Thankfully we have some friends who love chocolate and travel (who doesn’t) and have been our eyes are ears abroad.

'Film tells the not-so-sweet side of chocolate'

What do you think of when you think of chocolate? Decadence? Dieting? An industry rife with exploitation and labour abuses?

Toronto director Michael Allcock offers a peek at the various sides of chocolate in the new documentary Semisweet: Life In Chocolate, airing on TVO on June 6. The film tells four stories – of Ron Obadia and Nadine Artemis, two raw food enthusiasts; of employees who live and work in Hershey, Pa., known as “The Sweetest Place on Earth” and more.

Chocolate is rich in phenolics, the same heart protective antioxidants found in wine. Indulgence? I call it self preservation!
