Bitter Chocolate
Investigating the Dark Side of the World's Most Seductive Sweet

Carol Off

Random House Canada, 2006

Topic: Culture

Award-winning author and broadcaster Carol Off reveals the fascinating – and often horrifying – stories behind our desire for all things chocolate.

Whether it's part of a Hallowe'en haul, the contents of a heart-shaped box or just a candy bar stashed in a desk drawer, chocolate is synonymous with pleasures both simple and indulgent. But behind the sweet image is a long history of exploitation.
