This post is about ChocolatePosted: May 16, 2006
I suppose there are more important things I could be talking about, but one of the things I missed most about being away was the food, so expect me to just talk about that at times.
For those of you who are unaware, Ghana is one of the world’s leading exporters of cocoa, the stuff that makes chocolate. Its how thousands of Ghanaians make a living, including my grandmother for a chunk of her life. Hence in addition to just liking the way it tastes, I feel sort of a special connection to Ghanaian chocolate.
This is what I grew up eating, Golden Tree chocolate.
It comes in milk chocolate
and Coffee flavors
as well as pure cocoa powder
This stuff has no additives. Its great. Think really dark chocolate in a mug
(sidenote: apologies for the poor pictures. I’m on dialup these days sadly. I’ll probably go over to an internet cafe with broadband to load the other pictures I am taking)
Anyway, turns out I ‘accidentally’ opened one of the bars
Now I guess I have to eat it all. Life is hard sometimes
