Cincinnati, OH Edition: Cincinnati Museum Center Chocolate Exhibit

Chocolate exhibit

I was really excited to check out the Cincinnati Museum Center (because I'm a nerd).

Chocolate exhibitIt was so cool and went through the history of chocolate throughout the centuries.

The chocolate that I have become accustomed to is very sweet - compared to the bittersweet or unsweet versions.

Chocolate hasn’t always been a bar. It hasn’t always been widely available. It hasn’t even always been sweet. Chocolate: The Exhibition tracks the rich history of the cacao bean, from its beginning as a royal — even divine — Maya drink to its current role as a romantic gesture, guilty pleasure and global commodity. Follow the history of chocolate culture and science from the 10th century rainforest to the modern-day corner store.

This sweet that we enjoy at leisure today used to be reserved for only the very wealthy.

Chocolate exhibitSo, it's pretty neat to think about its journey.
