Today in Minneapolis the third city-wide snow emergency this year has been declared and our streets are blanketed with several feet of snow. While I’ve always been a lover of a good snowfall, the warmer climates of the Global South are beckoning. GoBe’s January Chocolate adventure to Ecuador can’t some soon enough! And, thanks to the good folks at the Minnesota Historical society, I’m lucky to have access to the perfect primer for the trip. Chocolate is on exhibit at the Minnesota History Center (just a few short miles away in St. Paul), on loan from Chicago’s Field Museum.
Chocolate will engage your senses and reveal facets of this sumptuous sweet that you’ve never thought about before. You’ll explore the plant, the products, and the culture of chocolate through the lenses of science, history, and popular culture.

And if you want to learn more, join us on the Pod to Port tour of Chocolate January 7th -17th (more information in previous post). It promises to be a delicious journey.
