Hello Fellow Chocolate Afficionados,

Received this morning:
“We’re quite pleased to share with you our new video which was produced and directed by Matt Uhry, an accomplished Los Angeles filmmaker who has been involved in hundreds of films, commercials and music videos.  If you like the Foo Fighters, then you’ve definitely seen his cinematography.  Matt and his wife/producer Sheigh Crabtree followed us around for about 5 days while we took them along our daily business in Vietnam.  It was completely unscripted, and we’re thrilled with the result.  Please feel free to share this video on any of your preferred platforms (blogs, social media, websites, etc.).  If you have any questions about the video, please feel free to contact myself, or Samuel.  We hope you like it! “

Cacao Farmers Taste Chocolate for The First Time

We all love a nice chunk of chocolate and the farmers of the Ivory Coast are no different, initially shocked by the sweetness only to eventually show off big grins, obviously enjoying their first bite.

Eat Every Day Chocolate for Perfect Skin

Dark-chocolate

This is one of my favorite foods to eat every day for perfect skin! Dark chocolate is rich in antioxidants, fatty acids and flavanols that promote glowing skin. The antioxidants in dark chocolate will help reduce roughness in your skin and protect it against sun damage. Moreover, cocoa relaxes arteries, increasing blood circulation that leads to healthier skin.

If you like dark chocolate, eat your 50g of dark chocolate every day and make sure you choose at least 80% cacao content in order to avoid milk and added sugars found in a traditional chocolate bar.
