I know it's not book related, but I had to do something. I found this over at Food Chronicles... the FDA is considering a petition by U.S. Chocolate Industry, through its Chocolate Manufacturers of America (CMA), and in collaboration with the Grocery Manufacturers Association to change the definition of chocolate in this country. They want to replace the cocoa butter with vegetable oil and real milk with milk solids. So, instead of eating chocolate, we will be left with this imitation-chocolate-like substance, that will probably taste overly sweet and be just icky. Enough of our lives are processed, does chocolate have to be, too?
Thankfully, it is America, and if we act NOW we can do something. Go here for details, and follow the links. It's easy; it takes about 5 minutes, but only if you leave an impassioned comment like I did. Please. It's chocolate.
