5.0 out of 5 stars Chocolate wars! a sweet read., 25 Sept. 2011
This book is an eye-opening read on the attempts by principled men, largely Quakers, to apply their religious convictions to their businesses for the benefit of their staff in a world when competition was hotting up and the demand for sweets was growing. It charts the difficulties manufacturers had in developing the products we take for granted today. How they had to discover by trial and error, the best way to treat the cocoa bean, whose name means, food of the gods, in order to tame it into products which were edible. It is very readable, and deals fairly with parts played by all the manufacturers, which have led to the current state of affairs in the world of chocolate. Definitely recommend.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Long Lost Lines - Series 1 (DVD)
This dvd is an excellent example of a well produced and informative piece of work which keeps the viewer interested all the way through. All the details of the production are well executed. The camera work is exceptional, background music well chosen to highlight the mood of the section; the presenter is clear easily understood and the details of the history are well presented. I learned a lot about our railway heritage. Thoroughly recommended.Long Lost Lines - Series 1
