Did you know that the chocolate bar you buy from the shop as a treat used to be a precious and exotic food that only aristocracy could afford? This book looks at the history of one of our favourite foods, from the ancient civilisations who made the first hot chocolate to today's global sweets industry.
Other topics covered are health aspects of chocolate, how it is produced, its chemical properties and how it is traded around the world.
With bright illustrations and amazing photographs, this is an ideal leisure read, but also perfect for coursework and presentations for key stage 2 readers.
