    chocolocateteam — 3 years ago

    What do Isaac Newton and Pam Montgomery have in common? Both were hit by a fruit when their life altering ideas hit them! While, Pam’s bonk on the head might not have change the course of physics, it’s equally as important in the realm of chocolate covered fruit. Pam owned an orchard and the season for cherries is short. So, Pam thought why not dry the cherries when they are fresh so they can be eaten all year round? In 1988, Pam leased a building from the local Port authority and opened a factory and storefront. But fruit was just the beginning. While vacationing in Europe, Pam tasted fruit covered with delicious chocolate- Eureka! Dried fruit is great but chocolate is universal!

    Bring in luck and wisdom this Chinese New Year with a little chocolate from our friends at Chocolate by Wickerhead. Besides, what is a celebration without a decadent piece of fine chocolate?

    While we fill our stockings with jolly chocolate Santas at Christmas-time and the Easter Bunny hops its way to premiere status in our Easter baskets in the spring, no one will deny that chocolate is one of the best gifts for fail proof gift-giving during most holiday seasons. There is also the adoring heart shaped chocolates we share with our loved ones on Valentine’s Day, but who rings in the Chinese New Year better than a wise chocolate Buddha?

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!
