Calling all foodies with a sweet tooth! Chocolate: the Exhibition will be showing at the Academy of Natural Sciences this fall. The exhibit begins with the history of chocolate, from it's beginnings as bean from the tropics of Central and South America. We then learn about how the Aztecs used the cacao seeds in their everyday lives as a form of currency, to the Spanish, who added sugar and made what we now know today as chocolate. Viewers will see it's impact on all levels of society, culture, and the ecosystem; including a real life cacao tree, with seeds and pods. There will also be memorabilia from various centuries, especially gold and silver coins from the 1700's and 1800's. The East Coast premiere of this exhibit will run from October 11, 2014 to January 24, 2015 and is available in English and Spanish.
