DailyDirt: No More Pure Chocolate

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Most folks like chocolate, but there are a few weirdos out there who don't. Sometimes, chocolate is used to mask the flavor of stuff that's good for you (like vitamins or minerals), but for the most part, chocolate lovers want to keep their chocolate free of adulterants. The supply of chocolate might have a hard time keeping up with the growing demand for it, so it could be difficult to preserve the exact same recipes for chocolate that we have now -- and there could be "vintage chocolates" on the market, sold like fine wines, someday. Here are just a few chocolate tidbits for the choco-philes/chocoholics out there. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!)

    Some Dark Trivia

    Famous mass murderer, human body butcher, and caucasian cannibal Jeffrey Dahmer worked the night shift as a chocolate mixer at the Ambrosia Chocolate Factory in Milwaukee. It's not known if he ever might have tossed in some extra ingredients (acquired through his infamous hobby) into the giant cooking vats.

    Ironically, Dahmer's huge refrigerator in his home was kept stocked with another kind of "chocolate" that he regularly dined on.
