The Future of Chocolate




As is typical with old media, there's a real try for intelligence in this New York Times op-ed. They even bring in little children in Africa to make us cry and score a point on the importance scale.

...But the piece tries to pack too much in and, in doing so, misses the much bigger point: new chocolate legislation in the U.S. could help Hershey continue to produce its superior (albeit crappy) chocolate bars and again trump Cadbury, its crappy rival across the Atlantic....which is good for all of us.

Thanks to Jon--himself a Cadbury fan, I believe--for pointing this piece out.
