Billions of people eat chocolate, yet not many know the origins of this delicious treat. Many people love it but are not quite sure what it is, where it comes from or when it became a thing. The making and consumption of chocolate has carried countries through centuries. It has been everything from a dessert to a tool of commerce. Even today, it is still one of the most consumed goods in the world by almost every nation. Most of the countries that produce chocolate do not have any chocolate farms. And most of the countries that farm cocoa beans do not produce chocolate. It is imported and exported all over the world. There are so many variations of chocolate that there are professional chocolate testers that make sure their companies are producing the highest quality products. Test your knowledge to see where you rank among the many chocolate lovers in the world.
Joselyn wasn’t too keen on multiple choice in high school. She vividly remembers the first biology exam she passed by only the skin of her teeth, which dragged her overall average down into the embarrassingly low 90s (she doesn’t want to talk about it). After swearing off any high school or university courses that required multiple choice tests, Joselyn managed to get an English degree by sweet-talking her professors into offering only essay-style exams. Needless to say, this did not exactly endear her to her peers. This rocky start smoothed out in time, though, and after tumbling down a black quiz hole one day while putting off job hunting, Joselyn realized her hatred of all things a-b-or-c had faded and she actually enjoyed dreaming up new ideas for questions and dangerously correct-sounding answers. You won’t find her quizzes an easy ride, but Joselyn just wants to make sure you’re really testing your knowledge.
Cocoa beans do not taste edible until they go through the fermentation process. That is when the chocolate flavor is brought out. This process releases the enzymes in the beans that create the deep chocolate flavor that we all love. There are also different types of chocolate, based on the regions where the beans are grown. Professional chocolate tasters can narrow down the country and region where a cocoa bean was grown based on the taste. Each country handpicks the cocoa pods to prevent damage to the trees and the beans. The processes that the cocoa beans go through after harvesting determine the variations in the flavor of the chocolate. Some of the more experienced chocolate tasters can make $100k per year, depending on their role and the company they work for. It is critical for chocolates being produced to meet the companies quality standards to please their customers.
