    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.

    Is chocolate good for you?

    • No


    • I am not sure


    • Yes!


    Newsflash- chocolate doesn't make you fat! I met a wonderful chocolatier Simone Marie, from Simone Marie Belgian Chocolate who laughs in the face of the North American notion that chocolate makes you fat. She explains to me that in Belgium this is definitely not the mentality.

Choco-locate in the Media

Choco-locate in Ontario Business Report

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. That's when she had a "light-bulb moment" about the perfect "transmedia" extension to her documentary about "the world of chocolate," which she was proposing to shoot at locations in Africa, Europe, the US and Canada.

'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!
