Come Experience Chocolate Like Never Before at “Chocolate: The Exhibition”
It’s undeniable that in today’s world chocolate is one of life’s most desirable treats, but have you ever wondered where this sweet delight originated? Well, now you can find out! In an exhibit that was developed by the Field Museum of Chicago, chocolate fans can explore the plant, products, history and culture of chocolate like never before in Chocolate: The Exhibition. Best of all, at the end of the walk through, visitors will be sent home with a chocolaty treat of their own, which is something they’ll likely be craving by the end of the exhibit.
This tantalizing exhibition on chocolate is scheduled to be featured at MUZEO in downtown Anaheim, California for a limited amount of time. Any history buffs interested in attending should know that this exhibit will cover chocolate’s history dating as far back as the early years of the Maya and Aztec cultures. Then while going through the showcase, spectators will eventually move into the era in which advancements in technology changed this rare luxury into a mass produced snack. And with all these changes came transformations in other aspects of this delightful treat, including advertising, art and packaging, giving audiences a glimpse of how changes in chocolate’s history coincided with changes that occurred in human culture. It’s like seeing history in the eyes of a chocolate fanatic.
Made for audiences of every type, this remarkable showcase will cover chocolate through the lenses of a variety of experts, from anthropologists to economists. Whether you like dark, milk or white there is a story behind them all, and rest assured that there will be enough information to keep both kids and adults hypnotized while going through this extraordinary journey of culture. With June just around the corner, you may want to prepare your sweet tooth because this is one exhibit that will have you craving more!
