What's in That Chocolate?
Mmmmmmm chocolate! Melt in your mouth, satisfying,
sheer pleasure for most of us. But there's a secret ingredient that you probably don't know about. Click the chocolate below to
find out what it is.
It's Child Slavery
43% of the chocolate used in
America for everything from candy bars to cake mixes to chocolate milk comes
from the Ivory Coast of Africa, where children are sold, lured, and kidnapped to
bring us this treat. Children who have never
tasted processed chocolate face beatings and brutal living conditions. The chocolate
industry says it's trying
to help, but they are fighting
in Congress to avoid labeling chocolate "Slave Free", the way tuna
cans are listed as being Dolphin Safe.
