A Visit to the Chocolate Factory

Chocolate ... Most of us love it, some more than others. We eat it in the form of candy bars and drink it in hot cocoa and chocolate milk. A recent survey reported that Americans consume around 11.7 pounds of chocolate per year!

The U.S. is not alone in its love for chocolate. In fact, we are ranked eighth in worldwide chocolate consumption. Switzerland, the country where milk chocolate was first created in 1876, leads the world with 20.7 pounds per person. Austria is not far behind at 19.6 pounds.
