    As an avid chocoholic and budding aficionado of all things chocolate covered, I clicked my heels at the thought of a chocolate show. When I got the dates for this year's Luxury Chocolate Show, I almost fainted. I'll be grabbing my trusty camera as I head to Roy Thompson Hall this weekend to get my chocolate fix, pronto!

    Running for chocolate?
    With the Olympics coming to a close and the final finish line just around the corner what appropriate way to truly celebrate the Olympics then with chocolate!

    What do Athlete’s and chocolate have in common? Lots actually! Here are just a few of the chocolaty connections:

    The pride of Yorkshire, triathlon Olympians Alistair and Johnny Brownlee have grown up with chocolate as their gold medals. At age 11 and 12 the awards they received for completing long marathons was quite often chocolate! The prizes handed out in those days were Cadbury cream eggs instead of gold medals. They have come a long way since there but their chocolate cravings remain.

    Chocolate milk is the fuel of Athletes. After finishing the 50m freestyle Jessica Hardy was seen chugging down chocolate milk. And Hardy is hardly the only one reaching for the chocolate milk! Swimmer and Gold medalist, Nathan Adrian is just one of the athletes who indorses the US ‘got chocolate milk’ campaign.

    Christopher Columbus would be jealous of the opportunity to discover a world of chocolate at Chocolopolis! Here chocolate is serious business with over 200 chocolate bars from 20 countries to choose from in Seattle. This high-end, couture take on chocolate will have you feeling like a million bucks as they find your signature bar.

    Entering Chocolopolis is like entering a dark chocolate oasis. This is where owner, Lauren Adler stole our heart and attention. “Our collection of chocolate is focused on small-batch, artisan chocolate makers who use fine, flavour cacao to make chocolate,” explains Lauren. It’s not just any bag of beans that makes it’s way into these bars but each cacao bean is carefully selected for it’s unique flavour profile. “Much like a wine store, our large collection of single-origin chocolate is arranged by cacao origin, with sections devoted to cacao-growing regions.” The most popular beans come from Venezuela, Ecuador and Madagascar- Chocolopolis has them all!

When award winning filmmaker Lalita Krishna was in Silver Springs, Maryland, pitching PBS on her new documentary "Semi-sweet," she found herself in a mall looking for some of the sweet stuff to take to the meeting.

'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!
