Chocolate with Active Minds — December 18, 2-3 p.m. — For Adults of All Ages 

The story of chocolate is a “rich” tale indeed. It involves aristocracy and slavery, innovation and coincidence. Pivotal roles were played by both Christopher Columbus and Hernando Cortéz. We will describe how extremely bitter cacao beans are transformed into one of the world’s most sought-after flavors and tell chocolate stories such as the rise of the luxury chocolate industry in Switzerland and the origins of the Hershey company. There will be a special prize drawing for a gift card to Littleton’s own Chocolate Therapist.
