This Week in Chocolate: May 24 – 31, 2015

News of the World

Our weekly roundup of chocolate related news, politics and products. Catch up with what’s happening every Sunday.

Week 22: May 24 – 31

Hello, welcome to Sunday. Here’s a recap of the week’s chocolate related news.

Hey remember when we wrote about that study around chocolate and weight loss a couple weeks back? Turns out it was completely fake. I’m sure this is gonna be a real bummer for someone. 

However it’s more of a dig at researchers than it is about chocolate. Ok let’s just agree to stop using chocolate in relation to shame ever again. 

Newsweek asked why does your chocolate taste so bad? Maybe it’s because you’re not eating good chocolate! This kind of thing is perfectly acceptable for the movie theatre but it’s sure not chocolate. (Sure, it’s a pack of 48. It’s a long movie!)

Hey check this out! Askinoise are going to be partnering with Target. Congrats! If only Target didn’t fail so terribly in Canada…

Speaking of failures.

Oh, also, speaking of chocolate and medicine, a new study found that chocolate is actually better for your afternoon slump than coffee. Actually, you know what? Fool me twice: shame on me. No more medical studies. Let’s just enjoy chocolate because it’s delicious. (Please be real.)

Those are you highlights (and lowlights) from the 22nd week of 2015. See you next Sunday.



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.
