  2. Scientists Unravel Chocolate Genome, Scientifically Superior Chocolates in Our Future

    It's okay, Game of Thrones fans: the world can still be an okay place sometimes.

    This weekend was very upsetting for me, from the death of All in the Family star Jean Stapleton to... well, Game of Thrones was pretty rough last night, y'all.

  7. You Got Chocolate In My Peanut Butter! And Both of Them In My Oil Spill!

    Fact: There is no situation in life so bleak that it can't be improved, if not entirely solved, by a liberal application of candy.

  10. Archaeologists find evidence of 2,500-year-old chocolate

    Curiouser and curiouser!

    Archeologists have long thought that cacao beans and pods were primarily used in pre-Columbian cultures to make an elite beverage, made by crushing up the beans and mixing them with liquids or allowing their pulp to ferment. But a recent discovery by Mexico's National Institute of Anthropology and History has shifted our understanding of the ancient food, suggesting that the historical plant might have actually been used as a sauce or condiment much earlier than previously thought.
