Section 2: Chocolate Around the World
This second section of the exhibit explores the ways Chocolate has increasingly reached around the globe. From transatlantic trade of the 16th century to today’s international global market, Chocolate has had an effect on many parts of the globe. It’s been absorbed into cultural practices as a food, a commodity, and a source of jobs. It’s been a tool for domination, and a way to retreat from the cares of the world. These themes have laid the foundation for Chocolate’s global presence today.
