Fellow chocolate lovers, you're going to be soooooo giddy about this news.
As someone who keeps a bag of chocolate chips going at all times, I've often found myself bummed out by reports on the chocolate industry. Many chocolate producers use cocoa harvested by child labor, which is totally not OK. (It's why I try to buy fair-trade chocolate whenever possible.) Some national parks in West Africa have been demolished to make room for more cocoa farms — again, not OK.
But some recent news out of Brazil has us chocolate fans jumping for joy over our beloved cacao bean.
