    Choco In the Classroom

    Chocolate, I love the stuff. I can talk about it at the drop of a hat and go on forever. So, it seems, can many others. There are chocolate books and bibles a plenty…. not to mention chocolate blogs about fine chocolates and just about any chocolate information you could want or need to know. One blog I visited had 349 pages of entries!

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.

Did you know?

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