chocolate the exhibition logo Did you know Utah is the home of America’s oldest known chocolate? That’s not the only thing you’ll get to learn about in the Natural History Museum of Utah’s latest exhibit – Chocolate: The Exhibition – and we have three pairs of tickets to the museum to giveaway (includes access to exhibit). In addition to the exhibit itself you can also quiz local experts during regular chocolate blasts and sample local chocolate makers such as Mezzo, Solstice and Millcreek Roasting Co. during set chocolate tastings. Highlights from the main exhibition include: Tropical Rainforest Enter a lush, tropical rainforest and examine a replica of a cacao tree with its seed pods, the source of chocolate. The Aztec Explore an interactive Aztec marketplace, where valuable cacao seeds were used as money, to learn the purchasing power of a handful of beans. Chocolate Comes to Europe The Spanish conquest of the Americas introduced chocolate to Europe. Learn what happened when chocolate first met sugar. See how the wealthiest consumers satisfied their chocolate cravings. Chocolate Manufacturing Take a look at the sweet side of the Industrial Revolution—the steady stream of new inventions and creative advertising that brought chocolate bars to the masses. Chocolate as a Global Commodity Who grows cacao? Which country consumes the most chocolate? Explore the relationship between cacao production and trade across the world. If that wasn’t enough there are also a series of public lectures and educational sessions from local experts such as Matt Caputo and Vanessa Chang. See the full program here (extra fees may apply). To enter the contest all you have to do is leave a comment on this post. In your comment, just let us know – what’s the sweetest thing in your world right now. We will pick three lucky winners on March 10th – each will receive two free tickets to the museum and this great exhibition.
