More than you might want to know about chocolate

by Ken Carpenter

Chocolate is one of the most positive things in an increasingly negative world. It can inspire a small sigh of pleasure from an individual with a permanently dour outlook. It can yank a clueless husband from the depths of the doghouse. If administered in strong enough doses, perhaps coating the end of a baseball bat, it might even be able to bring cohesion to America’s political parties.
While I may go days without it, I can’t imagine life without its small pleasures.
Today’s story is from 2012, and it has history, trivia and maybe a smile or two. Have some chocolate handy.
