Happy Valentine's Day!


Note: On July 15, 2005 I went to the Native American Indian Museum in Washington, D.C.
and saw a demonstration on Bolivian chocolate making presented by the El Ceibo chocolate
manufacturers of La Paz.  I actually touched and saw a real pod, with the seeds, etc. They are
really big. The seeds were stuck together with a waxy substance that I believe is the raw cocoa butter.
They had samples of chocolate from the pod, to the roasted beans,  powder, etc. all the way to the bar! 
Suddenly, all the questions on this trivia page became real and made more sense! ;)
