Oh, it’s the News of the Week. Happy Sunday!

Let’s not hold the suspense. Here are 14 Gifs of Chocolate to Awaken You Sexually. Of COURSE it will disappoint you.

Wait a second: Mars supports the WHO’s guideline for having no more than 10% of your daily calories in added sugar. However the WHO also states that a 5% maximum would have “additional benefits”. So no more of these for you!

48 child slaves were freed in Côte d’Ivoire. This is another reason why it’s important to support craft chocolate and bean-to-bar chocolate makers: trace the cacao right to the people who grew it and harvested it.

In the Philippines cacao farmers are given access to a guarantee fund, credit support and crop insurance. The Philippines are looking to put their quality beans out there!

Barry Callebaut expects sales to just keep on growing and growing… How long they expect this to continue is anybody’s guess.

There you have your chocolate news for the week. Now go enjoy some sexy chocolate gifs.


Being the son of a chocolatier Chris has always enjoyed talking about chocolate as much as he loves eating it. He’s an artist and designer as well as a co-founder of the Chocolate Codex.
