Synopsis: Draws on botany, archaeology, socioeconomics, and culinary history to relate the story of chocolate, from its early use by the Maya and Aztecs to its revival in modern times as a luxury item

Review: The Coes, both anthropologists with a culinary bent, delve deeply into the history of their mouth-watering subject. The material on ancient cultures is particularly fascinating--did you know that the Maya used unsweetened liquid chocolate as currency? And in a chapter called "Chocolate for the Masses," they detail the modernization of chocolate manufacture, which has allowed more than 25 million Hershey's Kisses to roll off the conveyor belt each day.
